Xanthan Gum

Xanthan Gum

Xanthan Gum is a polysaccharide produced through the fermentation of sugars. It is used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in a wide variety of food products, including salad dressings, sauces, dairy products, and bakery items. Xanthan gum is particularly useful because it can create a gel-like consistency even in small quantities, and it is resistant to changes in temperature and pH. It also has the ability to suspend solid particles and keep them evenly distributed in liquid products.
