Barry Farms is known for their quality and rare, hard-to-find ingredients. Xanthan Gum is no exception, but anything can be found on Amazon, right? Barry Farms to the rescue!

Xanthan Gum is used to modify the viscosity of liquids, on a very low scale (typically 1/3 tsp per 1 gallon). Because of the difficulty in combining Xanthan Gum to a liquid evenly, you should mix this into your liquid very slowly, in a blender at full speed, and it should be one of your steps (before adding other ingredients, including Guar Gum).

Many ice creams and popsicles, even Italian ices, call for two main ingredients: Xanthan Gum and sometimes Guar Gum (also available from Barry Farms: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00015UC5M?tag=a52-20&ie=UTF8). Both of these gums behave quite differently, and Xanthan Gum can be harder to mix into your liquid solution (again, mix in slowly via blender running on high), but both are effective means to preventing crystallization of liquids, which is the secret to making softer ice cream and popsicles instead of rock hard ice!

Another interesting characteristic of Xanthan Gum is its ability to thin out when subjected to forces such as shaking (called shearing), which makes it great for poured sauces, as it will thicken back up after having exited the bottle. It can also prevent oils from separating from liquid-oil emulsions (think salad dressing). It is also more stable under a wider range of temperatures and pH than other gums.

Xanthan Gum can also be used to give dough the stickiness that is needed in gluten-free baking, as gluten is usually what gives that sticky characteristic to dough. And no matter the use, Xanthan Gum will always remain colorless and flavorless, so it can be used for just about any need that suits it.

Well, that says it all...add some to anything as a thickener / tiny bit - works wonders. Fast delivery from family run farm/store (nice folks) - average pricing.

Was very happy to find this at such a resonable price and I am sure it will a very good product. The unfortunate part is they seem to charge shipping according to the price of an item, not the weight. By the time you add up shipping and price of the xanthan gum you will pay the same anywhere. Not a savings!

I dont know how anyone can complain that this product is pricey.Walk into any healthfood store and be prepared to pay 14$ for the same size of xanthan gum.Also Barry Farms has the best selection of every imaginable food product,gluten-free or not and very good prices.I was very happy when I ordered from them previously.My little bag of xanthan gum has lasted me over a year and I bake alot.

The Xanthan Gum works great as a thickening agent when cooking hot meals or even smoothies in the blender. It takes the place of corn starch or flour when I am making a stew. I've tried buying this product at health food stores but could only find it on Amazon. A tiny bit goes a long way, so even though the bag is small, it will last a long time.

Great for thickening salad dressings or smoothies. I have never had digestive issues when using it although I don't use it every day, and it is in almost everything you buy at the store.

It looks like magic. I was making a whey chocolate ice cream with it, and once you mix it into the recipe and blend with water it becomes a perfect mousse texture. Amazing.
