Authentic Foods Xanthan Gum
This xanthan gum is a perfect gluten-free option (the protein which gives wheat flour its structure). Combine it with non-gluten flours to produce gluten-free baked goods with excellent structure and texture. To boost the suspension of vinegar and oil in your homemade salad dressings, apply a pinch of xanthan gum.
The Authentic Cuisines Xanthan Gum is a high-quality product made from the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris during a fermentation process. This bacteria was discovered on cabbage plants. The gum is essentially the bacteria’s cell wall surface, which is removed through a complex enzymatic process. The bacteria are fed glucose and minerals during the fermentation process. When the mixture is finished, it is pasteurised to kill the bacteria. The outer skin is then removed via a sequence of liquid enzyme reactions, resulting in a solid substance. After that, the gum is washed, dried, and milled into a fine powder.
