What Is Xanthan Gum Powder?
Xanthan Gum is a polysaccharide, discovered in the 1960s and accepted as a safe food additive in 1968. It is commonly used as a thickening agent and stabilizer in foods to prevent ingredients from separating. Production comes from using a fermentation process, and the name derives from the species of bacteria used in the fermentation process. It is safe to use in foods, drinks, baking, and gluten-free baking.

How Does Xanthan Gum Powder Work?
Xanthan Gum is a soluble fiber that your body can not break down, which in turn becomes absorbed by water, creating a gel-like substance that then slows digestion. The fact that Xanthan Gum is a soluble fiber, also means that it contains no caloric value.
