Lorann Xanthan Gum
What is Xanthan Gum?Xanthan Gum is a natural hydrocolloid used commercially in foods as a thickening agent and stabilizer.
Use Xanthan Gum as an EmulsifierWhen added to water, xanthan gum forms a gel. That gel helps keep ingredients emulsified and suspended so they look appetizing on the shelf. Think salad dressings with lots of herbs and spices.
Why Use Xanthan Gum in Gluten-Free Baking?If only there was a convenient, easy-to-use ingredient that would create a more delicate texture in gluten-free treats. Gluten-free folks, meet Xanthan Gum! Xanthan gum does a great job of duplicating the elasticity of gluten in gluten-free flours. The result is muffins and cakes with perfect sponge and deliciously chewy pizza doughs.
