So, what is gommes xanthane et guar?

"Gommes xanthane et guar" is a plant-based, gluten-free thickener commonly used in food manufacturing and cooking. Xanthan gum is derived from fermented corn sugar, while guar gum comes from the seeds of the guar plant. When combined, they create a versatile ingredient that can be used in various applications such as stabilizing emulsions, preventing ice crystal formation in frozen desserts, and improving the texture of gluten-free baked goods. These gommes are highly effective at small concentrations, making them a cost-effective choice for food manufacturers seeking to improve the quality and shelf life of their products.
