Xanthan gum is a natural emulsifier, thickener and stabilizer, derived from bacterial fermentation of corn sugar. With amazing properties including solubility in both hot and cold water, tolerance to salt, tolerance to pH and temperature changes, it is ideal for making gels and for thickening and adding volume to lotions and creams. Use at 0.5-1%. For quick easy dispersion, mix Xanthan Gum with vegetable glycerin (this prevents lumps and reduces mixing time)
Xanthan gum is also used as a substitute for wheat gluten in gluten-free breads, pastas and other flour-based food products. The Xanthan gum will help give the dough or batter a sticky consistency that would normally be achieved with gluten.
Use at 1-2 tsp per cup on gluten free flour.
