Product Overview

Now Bottle

Xanthan Gum

  • Pure Powder
  • Natural Thickener

Sugar Free


Low Sodium

Xanthan Gum is produced by the pure culture fermentation of the microorganism Xanthomonas Campestris to yield a type of gel fiber similar to guar gum. It is commonly used in thickening food products. As the label on the Xanthan Gum powder suggests this product is used as a baking aid for recipes that use gluten free flours. Gluten is needed to impart elasticity to the dough which would allow it hold in the gases formed by fermentation which causes the rising effect. Xanthan Gum acts as a substitute for the missing gluten in gluten free recipes.

So, I'm new at the application of xanthan gum but how I used it was incredibly effective! (At least at thickening). I always throw my protein powder in my nutrabullet with some ice and milk. I used to use a frozen banana to thicken it but it adds lots of carbs. This xanthan gum definitely thickens things. Just a tiny but and my shake was sticking to the walls of my blender with a thick, creamy consistency. Now, if I could figure out what to bake with it...

Unable to mix this in liquid. Tried mixing with sugar as I heard that might help, but it didn't. Tried immersion blender, didn't work. Tried blender, that made a foam that never broke. Kinda cool, not my intention. I gave it 3 because it's possible there's a technique I am unaware of.
