NOW Foods Xanthan Gum Description

  • 100% Pure Powder
  • Natural Thickener
  • Your Recipe's Secret Ingredient
  • Country of Origin - China

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 favorite 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.
