Manufactured by DaniscoXanthan gum is an exocellular heteropolysaccharide (EPS) produced by the microorganism xanthomonas campestris by a fermentation process.
Xanthan gum is primarily used as a thickener but also known as the most efficient stabiliser for suspensions, emulsions or solid particles in water-based recipes.
Xanthan gum is highly resistance to enzymatic degradation, extremely stable over a wide temperature and pH range and in high concentrations of alcohol, making it suitable for an outstanding range of applications.
Application areasXanthan gum is traditionally used in a wide range of applications where it acts as a thickening and stabilising agent. Typical applications in the food industry are:
- Dressing and sauces
- Baked goods
- Dairy desserts
- Cream cheese and processed cheese
- Fruit preparations
- Ice cream
