I will admit to not being a typical molecular gastronomy type of guy. I guess that means that I tend to like to do things the 'old' way...the proven way. But sometimes there is just no useful reason to avoid modern technology. This is one of those times. Over the past few years I have noticed an increasing use of Xanthan Gum in products off of the Grocer's shelves. So, yes, I READ the labels. After doing a little research, I decided to find some of this miracle stuff and give it a try. It really is quite a remarkable product.

Quickly then, Xanthan Gum is a thickener and a stabilizer. While it acts like an emulsifier, it apparently is not. In VERY SMALL quantities it acts to thicken solutions--providing smooth and even textures, increasing the ability to hold non-solution ingredients stable and prevent them from separating from the solution. It can be used in a variety of different ways...different temperatures and different levels of acidity (PH levels..). It is similar in some ways to Guar Gum (see: Now Foods Guar Gum Powder, 8 oz ( Multi-Pack)). Probably one of the most common uses today in store bought products is for adding stability to bottled salad dressings. I currently have four different dressings in the house (from three different manufacturers..)and all of them contain Xanthan Gum. Ever wonder why those little grains of mustard or pieces of spice or herbs don't settle out of your salad dressing..??? Uh huh, that's right.....

So, why do I like it?? Especially since there are many different products out there that effectively thicken. Well, there are three real reasons. First, when used appropriately, there is absolutely no taste.

This stuff is great to thicken up anything. I use it in cream of wheat and oatmeal for a thicker texture and some fiber as a bonus. Its very chemically resistant so you can turn most liquid cleaners into gel cleaners so they cling better. I'm having fun coming up with new uses for it.

I have been looking for some time for something to thicken foods without adding all the carbs that flour and corn starch do. This product fits the bill! It only takes a very small amount and thickens foods without lumps, doesn't change the flavor and opens up a variety of foods that I could not make before on my low carb diet. Great product!

Xanthan Gum is often used as a thickener and in gluten free bread products. In bread it works in place of the gluten, by binding the non- gluten flours together. I use this product in breads and pastry products with good success. There are several companies which sell Xanthan gum, however, I prefer the Now corporation for purity of product, price and availability. As a thickener in other products such as ice creams and some sauces, Xanthan gum offers the thickening action as well as no noticeable taste. A good product for baking or cooking.

I can't compare the quality of this stuff to any other xanthan gum out there, but it was certainly one of the cheapest. Works exactly like it should, so no surprises or complaints there.
As someone else mentioned, the bottle comes 60% full (though, it at the correct weight). Extra bottle space seems like a bit of a waste.
(btw, I saw this same brand at a local health store, for about $1 more).

Shipped fast. You only need a minuscule amount. I use it in my homemade protein shakes. Gives it just the right amount of thickness. I have over gummed a few times and it ruins the drink. It is a great product especially on a low carb diet.

Container was a bit dented but plastic didn't crack so not a real problem (I'm being fussy here).
Great product inside though: it gives a creamy texture to all the soups and desserts I make. Even for smoothies, I can tell that it adds a special finesse to the drink (almost comparable to what an avocado can do).

One big warning: a very tiny amount goes a long way (1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon per cup of flour for a cake). Too much of it and the texture of the batter/smoothie turns gooey.
Note: I'm not an expert on pound cakes (they collapse while baking almost all the time), but this powder saved the last three batches I made... They turned fluffy and well-raised. So now, I don't mind baking pound cakes anymore!

Overall, I love this product (excellent price) and I tend to use it more and more often in the kitchen.

I got this pretty quickly and it works well for everything I typically put xantham gum in. It's nice having it come out of a shaker instead of a bag...
