Xanthan Gum - Produced from the fermentation of corn sugar.
It is most commonly used as a stabilizer, emulsifier and thickener. Xanthan Gum
is made from a tiny microorganism call Xanthomonas Carmpestris and is a natural
carbohydrate. It is also a substitute for gluten and to give volume to breads and
other gluten-free baked goods. Xanthan gum can be added to liquids such as salad
dressings, gravies, sauces, sour cream, yogurt and even ice cream to give them a
creamy smooth texture. It also has the unique ability to hold particles of food
together, making it a good stabilizer.
