Xanthan Gum 100g Extra Fine

Rating:
100% of 100
Our Xanthan Gum is 200 mesh compared to the standard 80 mesh this means it is finer than standard Xanthan Gum making it easier to disperse and dissolve. Xanthan Gum is a food additive and commonly used as a thickener, stabiliser, emulsifier and foaming agent. It is mainly considered to be non-gelling and used for the control of viscosity due to the tenuous associations endowing it with weak-gel shear-thinning properties. However, when added to other hydrocolloids, gels can be produced. Xanthan Gum can be added to Agar Agar and Kappa Carrageenan to form a more stable gel. The consistent water holding ability of Xanthan Gum may be used for the control of syneresis and to retard ice recrystallisation (ice crystal growth) in freeze-thaw situations. Xanthan Gum can also be used in pastry fillings, to prevent the weeping of the water in the filling, protecting the crispness of the crust and added to ice cream to prevent ice-crystals forming. It is capable of producing a large increase in the viscosity of a liquid by adding a very small amount, around 1%, however, in most applications it is used at 0.5% or even as low as 0.05% In foods, it is often found in salad dressings and sauces. It helps to prevent oil separation by stabilizing the emulsion. Xanthan Gum also helps suspend solid particles, such as spices. Also, used in frozen foods and beverages, it helps create the pleasant texture in ice creams. It does not change the colour or flavour of foods or beverages.

  • Stabiliser, emulsifier and texture improver
  • Use as a thickener, stabiliser and to improve texture in sauces and dressing
  • Add to Agar Agar and Carrageenan Kappa to produce more stable gels
  • Use in ice cream to improve texture and stop ice crystals forming
  • Stabilise foams when using a whipper gun, these foams may then be served hot or cold
  • Use in pastry and pie fillings to prevent weeping of the filling

How to use: Xanthan Gum is capable of producing a large increase in the viscosity of a liquid by adding a small amount usually around 1%, however in most applications it is used at 0.5% or even as low as 0.05%
