Ingredients xanthan gum

Xanthan Gum is an essential ingredient for gluten free baking. It acts as an emulsifier and a binder, and adds volume to gluten free breads, cookies, cakes, and other baked goods.

Details

Xanthan Gum is a plant-based thickening and stabilizing agent. It is named for the bacteria, Xanthomonas campestris, which plays a crucial role in this description. Technically speaking, xanthan gum is a polysaccharide, which is just a fancy way to say "a string of multiple sugars." To create xanthan gum, the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium is allowed to ferment on a sugar. The result is a gel that is then dried and milled to create the powder substance.

Xanthan gum has a number of powerful properties. First, it works as an emulsifier, encouraging liquids that normally don't like one another to mix together. Second, it works as thickener, increasing the viscosity of liquids and batters. Third, it can create a creamy texture.

In the world of gluten-free baking, xanthan gum plays the crucial role of imitating gluten. In baking, gluten is what makes dough "doughy." It gives the dough elasticity, as well as viscosity. Those properties help to hold a cookie together while it bakes on a sheet in the oven, and they enable cakes and breads to hold onto the gas bubbles that form inside them - this allows them to rise and take shape. Xanthan gum helps replicate these properties in recipes that do not contain gluten. Shop online today to buy xanthan gum for all your gluten free baking adventures!

I recommend this product. I tried making gluten free bread without Xanthan gum but was not successful. With this product bread turned out very well.

Great for gluten free baking and cooking with protein powder
I don't follow a gluten free diet, but I like to experiment with different flours and protein powder. Xanthan Gum becomes a must in those cases, making products less dry and more fluffy. A little goes a long way. Works great for baking and pancakes; it also can help smoothies/protein shakes thicken (especially if you use plain whey/pea protein).

Hard to rate
The xanthan gum was part of a recipe for gluten free donuts. The donuts turned out fine, but it is difficult to say just how much of that was due to the xanthan gum.

Adds creaminess and thickening to shakes
I make protein shakes for breakfast in a blender. This is ice, water, protein powder and a sprinkle of Xanthan Gum. Without this addition, my shakes would be watery. Now they are thick and delicious. I look forward to having one each morning.
(Just to note: I use Myoplex powdered shake mix which I think is the best for taste and calories while being protein.

AS a celiac, I can't bake without the Xanthan gum as my glue. I also bake muffins, pies, cakes and cookies for my brother. He has an egg allergy in addition to needing gluten free. I have found that I can substitute 1 T of vinegar for each egg in recipe (up to 2 eggs) and increase Xanthan gum to 1 1/2 tsp for every 2 cups of GF flour. This makes most of my old recipes work well. Doesn't work if recipe requires a lot of eggs.

I have no intolerance nor allergy to wheat or eggs. Nevertheless I want to experiment with recipes that use neither, so I am getting ingredients commonly recommended in a GF bread cookbook I got. A few things here (like the vital wheat gluten) are for regular recipes. But it's all for bread baking.
