Xanthan Gum  Industry @ a Glance
Xanthan is still one of the fastest growing hydrocolloids. Its versatility and, now its low price, make it a hydrocolloid of choice.
In 1980, the EU approved xanthan gum under the E-number 415, some eleven years after the FDA cleared the high molecular weight polysaccharide as a food additive for the US market.
  • Chemical Formula: (C35H49O29)n
  • Xanthan Gum is produced by fermentation of Xanthomonas Campestris.
  • Biogums (such as xanthan gum) used by the food industry as low calorie fat replacers and stabilisers, and to provide texture and viscosity to sauces and dressings. Biogums help sauces to 'cling' to other foods such as vegetables and meat.
  • Xanthan Gum is an odourless cream-coloured powder.
  • Xanthan Gum dissolves in cold and hot water, the solutions are very viscous, highly pseudoplastic and very resistant to pH- variations, enzymatic degradation and temperature variations.
  • Xanthan Gum disposes of excellent freeze / thaw stability and is compatible with all commercial thickener and alcohol.
  • Xanthan gum is used to provide viscosity, suspension and emulsion stability of water based systems
