So, what is gómme xanthane?

Xanthan gum is a food ingredient commonly used as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer in a variety of products, including dressings, sauces, bakery items, and dairy products. Gómme xanthane is the French term for this versatile ingredient, which is derived from the bacterial fermentation of glucose or sucrose. It has a neutral taste and can withstand a wide range of temperatures and pH levels, making it a popular choice for both hot and cold applications. Its ability to create a smooth, uniform texture in foods and prevent ingredients from separating makes it a valuable addition to many recipes.
