So, what is goma xantica?

Goma xantica, also known as xanthan gum, is a natural polysaccharide commonly used as a food additive and thickening agent. It is derived from the fermentation of sugars by the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium, which produces a viscous substance that can be processed into a fine, white powder. Goma xantica is highly soluble in both hot and cold liquids, stable at a wide range of temperatures and pH levels, and resistant to enzymes and microbial degradation. Its unique properties make it an essential ingredient in many food products, including sauces, dressings, dairy products, baked goods, and beverages.
