Our Perfected™ Xanthan Gum (e415) is an exclusive formulation, designed to eliminate the shortcomings of traditional generic xanthan gum. It is superior as a food additive because it is agglomerated, which means that it mixes more quickly and easily while eliminating lumps and gum balls. It also removes the need for slurries and premixes and it handles with virtually no dust. Use Perfected™ Xanthan Gum as a one-to-one replacement for xanthan gum in any recipe.
Xanthan Gum is a long chain polysacharide composed of the sugars glucose, mannose, and glucuronic acid. It is used as a thickener in sauces, as an agent in ice cream that prevents ice crystals from forming, and as a fat substitute that adds the "mouth feel" of fat without the calories.
