So, what is xantángumi?

Xanthan gum is a food ingredient that is widely used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in the food industry. It is derived from the bacterial fermentation of corn sugar or other plant-based sources, making it a popular choice for vegan and gluten-free recipes. Xanthan gum is highly soluble in water and has a unique ability to create a viscous and gel-like texture in foods, improving their mouthfeel and overall quality. It is commonly found in products such as sauces, dressings, baked goods, and dairy alternatives, and can also be used in personal care products such as toothpaste and shampoo.
