Suma Xanthan Gum 100g -(Vegan) Glutenfrei
Xanthan gum (E415) is used as a thickening agent in the manufacture of certain foods and is similar to guar gum which is used for the same purpose.
It is also commonly used as a gluten substitute in wheat free and gluten free cooking.
When wheat free or gluten free products are made using alternative flours to wheat they require help with elasticity to hold them together,
and for wheat free and gluten free bread making it helps to hold in the gases formed by yeast fermentation.
Xanthan gum can also be used for thickening sauces.
