    Hi!
    I have Gluten free all purpose backing flour.
    I would like to make gluten free bagle.
    I have a question about xanthan gum.
    Is it safe for cancer people?
    Do you know that if I don’t use xanthan gum instead of another things?

      We do not have information regarding cancer and the use of our Xanthan Gum. I highly recommend consulting with your healthcare provider regarding this topic.

      In gluten free baked goods, Xanthan Gum and Guar Gum act as binders. By eliminating them in recipes that require their use, you will end up with a baked good that lacks height and has an excessive crumb. If you do not want to use these two ingredients, you may choose to use Flaxseed Meal, Chia Seeds or an additional egg. However, these items are better used in baked goods that do not require yeast. You will find information on using Flaxseed Meal or Chia Seeds as a binder below.

      Flaxseed Meal: Mix together 1 Tbsp. flaxseed meal + 3 Tbsp. water, let sit for a few minutes. Add to wet ingredients.
      Chia Seeds: Soak 1 Tbs. chia seeds in 3 Tbs. water for 5 minutes until the mixture has the texture of a raw egg.

      You may be interested in using Psyllium Fiber Powder in place of the Xanthan Gum called for in this recipe. To do so, use twice the amount of Psyllium Fiber Powder.

      Hi Brandy,
      We haven’t tried this substitution, but if you’d like to use regular eggs, the chia gel “egg” mixture should be the equivalent of 2 large eggs.
