NOW Real Food Xanthan Gum Powder
170 g
It may sound like a name from a cheesy sci-fi movie, but Xanthan Gum is actually a widely-used thickening agent. In fact, Xanthan is legendary for its ability to increase liquid viscosity with just a tiny amount, and is stable throughout a wide range of temperatures and pH. With Xanthan Gum, a little goes a long way. NOW Real Food® Xanthan Gum is an excellent addition to your favourite sauces and dressings due to its ability to prevent oil separation and to keep solid particles, such as spices, suspended. It lends a smooth texture to many foods, making it a desirable addition to recipes.

Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food® has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We’re independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.

Use as a natural thickener as you would with other starches. Many gluten-free baking recipes call for Xanthan Gum to replace the elasticity and texture of gluten. For every cup of gluten-free flour in a recipe, use about 1 tsp of gum for cakes and cookies and 2 tsp of gum for breads and pizza.

Ingredients: Pure Xanthan Gum

Lois: more than a year ago

Loved this product. I've been using Glucomannan to thicken things, but my husband can taste it no matter what. This -- he couldn't! Plus, no slimy feel!

Marge: more than a year ago

Excellent product. Only a small amount is needed to prevent gluten free bread and other products from crumbling.

Anne: more than a year ago

Essential if you are cooking gluten free.

Susie: more than a year ago

Excellent product. Large amount for a good price.

Linda: more than a year ago

Works as a great thickener for homemade shower gels made from castile soap. Didn't need any heat to dissolve, just a little shake and some time to sit.

Julie: more than a year ago

This ingredient is essential in a lot of gluten free. It is somewhat easy to find, but in a container this size, at this price... I lucked out. And, it arrived within 2 days!

Works great. I use it to make real juice popsicles. They come out nice and slushy, not rock hard. I use 1/4 tsp. xantham gum for every litre of juice. A little goes a very long way.
