So, what is gomma di xanthan?

Gomma di xanthan, also known as xanthan gum, is a natural polysaccharide that is commonly used as a food thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It is produced by fermenting glucose with the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium, which results in a fine, white powder that dissolves readily in water. Gomma di xanthan has the unique ability to increase the viscosity of liquids, even at very low concentrations, making it an ideal ingredient for a variety of foods such as sauces, dressings, and baked goods. Additionally, it is a gluten-free and vegan-friendly ingredient that is widely used in the food industry due to its versatility and effectiveness.
