NEW: Xanthan Gum

One of our newest ingredients is a highly desired food additive you likely have seen listed on a variety of products: Xanthan Gum! This whitish powder is derived from corn starch fermented with Xanthomonas campestris bacteria. It is praised for its effective thickening and stabilizing properties when added to a formulation.

Throughout the food and beverage manufacturing industry, this prevalent raw material increases the viscosity of a liquid formulation, stabilizes food, prevents separation of mixed ingredients, and can greatly improve the texture of an end-product. Xanthan gum is often used in gluten-free products, due to its ability to boost elasticity and stickiness in doughs or batters which gluten naturally provides. In vegan food preparations, it often replaces gelatin additives and thickens egg substitutes.

Xanthan gum is used in the manufacturing of salad dressings, baked goods, soups, ice cream, sauces, and syrups. In the cosmetic and personal-care industry, xanthan gum is utilized for oil-in-water emulsions or gel products, in addition to toothpaste, creams, lotions, and shampoos. Industrial applications also exist to thicken and resist varying temperatures and pH levels such as in paints, adhesives, and cleaners.
