XANTHAN GUM

Xanthan gum is produced by fermenting corn sugar. It is a thickenier and emulsifier used to thicken and stabilize salad dressings, sour cream, etc.

Xanthan Gum is made by the fermentation of corn sugar with a microbe called Xanthomonas campestris, from which the name is derived. It is most commonly used as a stabilizer, emulsifier and thickener in dairy foods such as yogurt and sour cream and salad dressings.
