Xanthan gum, also known as Xanthum or Zanthan gum is a very useful ingredient to have to hand for free from cooking and baking. Xanthan gum is considered by many to be an essential ingredient for any gluten free kitchen. Xanthan gum acts as a gluten substitute in gluten free baking - when added to gluten free bread and cake mixes xanthan gum improves the elasticity of the dough and gives a lighter fluffier texture.

Xanthan gum can also be useful when cooking for low fat diets. The texture of low fat sauces can be improved without increasing the fat content by adding a little xanthan gum.

Even outside of specialist diet cooking and baking xanthan gum is a useful ingredient for improving texture of ice creams, smoothies and preventing separation in vinaigrettes and salad dressings.

A note of caution however! A little goes a long way. When it comes to using Xanthan Gum, be careful to closely follow the recipe and if in doubt use less rather then more.

Usage
Bread - 1 teaspoonful of Xanthan Gum per 4oz/100g flour
