Xanthan gum can affect formulations based on the amount utilized. The greater amount of xanthan gum, the thicker the liquids in the application will become. Products can be formulated to be thicker and more stabilized. Xanthan gum can also improve texture, consistency, shelf life, and appearance of many types of products.

Appearance: Xanthan gum is a fine, off-white to light beige powder.

Particle size: The particle size of xanthan gum typically ranges from 80 to 200 mesh, which means that it has a relatively fine texture.

Solubility: Xanthan gum is highly soluble in water and forms a thick, viscous solution when hydrated. It can also be dispersed in other liquids, such as oils or alcohols, with the help of a dispersing agent.

Viscosity: The viscosity of xanthan gum solutions can vary depending on the concentration and temperature. Generally, higher concentrations of xanthan gum result in higher viscosity solutions.
