So, what is xanthaangom?

Xanthan gum is a natural, plant-based ingredient commonly used as a food thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. It is made through a fermentation process using a bacteria called Xanthomonas campestris, which produces a slimy substance that is then dried and ground into a fine powder. Xanthan gum is highly versatile and can be used in a variety of foods, from salad dressings and sauces to baked goods and dairy products. It is also often used in gluten-free baking as a binding agent. Xanthan gum is a popular choice for those seeking a vegan or vegetarian alternative to animal-based thickeners and stabilizers. Its unique properties make it a valuable ingredient in the food industry.
