So, what is goma xantano?

Goma xantano, also known as xanthan gum, is a polysaccharide that is commonly used as a food additive. It is derived from the fermentation of corn sugar by the bacteria Xanthomonas campestris. Goma xantano is an extremely versatile ingredient that is used as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer in a wide range of food products, including sauces, dressings, bakery goods, and dairy products. It is known for its ability to create a smooth, uniform texture and to prevent separation of ingredients. Goma xantano is also popular in gluten-free baking as it can mimic the properties of gluten, resulting in a similar texture and consistency.
