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!

Great, magical thickener. Here are guidelines for using it
Amazingly handy thickener. Am using it more and more instead of cornstarch, as this requires no heat to activate and doesn't degrade with boiling.

Did some research to find amounts and methods. See:

See the write-up: http://feedme.typepad.com/my_weblog/2016/01/xanthan-gum-magical-food-thickener.html

Basically, 1/8 tsp per cup of liquid is 0.2% and will thicken slightly; 1/4-1/2 tsp per cup (0.25-0.5%) meets most needs. 2.5 grams is one teaspoon.

Use a hand blender to avoid clumps and activate it.
