Origin - USA
This gel-like substance is dried and powdered for use in foods as a thickening agent and in cosmetics as an emulsifier. Xanthan gum is a grood alternative for people with a sensitivity to gluten. It behaves like gluten by giving dough elasticity and allowing it to rise, but without any gluten protein present
Xanthan Gum is most typically used as a food additive, but also has other common uses. The polysaccharide is actually produced when the Xanthamonas campestris bacterium ferments glucose or sucrose. Xanthan Gum has the ability to increase the viscous nature of a liquid, and thus can be used to thicken lotions, creams and gels in cosmetic preparations. It can work as a substitute for fat, and when used in ice creams it helps to prevent ice salad. Unlike other gums, it is very stable under a wide range of temperatures and ph
Flavor Profile - Xanthan gum has a neutral flavor that doesn’t compete with the flavor of foods.
