Xanthan gum

About the ingredient xanthan gum. Including 15 recipes with xanthan gum, and where to find it.

 

What is xanthan gum?

Xanthan Gum is a plant-based stablising and thickening agent.

Xanthan gum is a powerful emulsifier that can encourage liquids that don't naturally mix together to combine. It is also a powerful thickener that helps increase the viscosity (thickness) of batters and liquids that it is added to as well as increasing creaminess.

It's it especially useful making gluten-free flours as Xanthan gum acts similarly to gluten. The Xanthan gum replaces the wheat-based gluten which enables the gluten-free flours to become elastic and allow baked goods like cookies and muffins to hold together and when making gluten-free bread helds retain gas bubbles that give bread its fluffy texture.

Where found

Xanthan gum is usually found in the baking supplies section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.

In Chinese:黄原胶
British (UK) term:
en français:la gomme de xanthane
en español:goma de xantano
