Xanthan gum,cream white powder, E415, CAS no.11138-66-2, food thickener, biosynthetic rubber, mainly made of starch, manufacturing process through fermentation process using the microorganism Xanthomonas Campestrisis. Advantages than other gums: outstanding water solubility and high viscosity; unique pseudoplastic characteristics in rheology; excellent stability in temperature and PH value;a stable compatibility co-existing with acid, alkali, salt, enzymes and other thickeners; a significant synergistic nature with melon and bean gum, locust bean gum, and other plastic type complex. Function and uses: Xanthan gum is a high perfermance thickener as the viscosity of 1% is about 100 times stronger than 1% gelatin solution. Xanthan gum creates a pleasant texture in foods and beverages. As an ingredient in beverages, xanthan gum can produce an increase in the viscosity of a liquid. In foods like dressings and sauces, xanthan gum helps to prevent oil separation by stabilizing the emulsion. Xanthan gum as an ingredient in ice cream and other frozen foods, produces desired texture.
