Xanthan Gum 200g Canister by Red Spoon Company

Xanthan Gum 200g Canister by Red Spoon Company

Xanthan gum, also known as E415 was first discovered by Allene Rosalind Jeanes and her research team at the United States Department of Agriculture. At the time of discovery Allene was in charge of screening a large number of biopolymers for their potential uses. One of the most remarkable properties of xanthan gum is its capability of producing a large increase in the viscosity of a liquid by adding a very small quantity of gum, on the order of one percent. In most foods, it is used at 0.5%, or even as low as 0.05%. The viscosity of xanthan gum solutions decreases with higher velocity rate. This means that a product subjected to a form of movement, whether from mixing, shaking or even chewing, will thin out, but once the this movement velocity is removed, the food will thicken back up. In foods, xanthan gum is most often found in salad dressings and sauces. Also used in frozen foods and beverages, xanthan gum creates the pleasant texture in many ice creams. Since the gluten (found in wheat) must be omitted, xanthan gum is used to give the dough or batter a "stickiness" that would otherwise be achieved with the gluten
