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.
