Product Code: 6170-0600Xanthan Gum is used as a thickening agent and stabilizer in a variety of foods. It also prevents ice crystals from forming in ice creams and provides a "fat feel" in low or no-fat dairy products. For best results, use 1/2 teaspoon per cup of liquid called for in the recipe. Whip in a blender with liquid to prevent clumping.
Xanthan Gum also promotes a good rise in gluten-free baked goods. Add 1 teaspoon per cup of gluten-free flour in yeast bread or pizza dough recipes. Add 1/2 teaspoon per cup of gluten-free flour in cake or muffin recipes. Blend with dry ingredients to prevent clumping.
