This Bob’s Red Mill Xanthan Gum Review will tell you all you need to know about this product.
This review differs from the traditional because Xanthan Gum is not something I recommend you eat plain – it’s simply used to thicken mixtures. I often use this product in my recipes, especially in my protein ice cream. I cannot count the number of times I get a message asking if this product is necessary within the recipe. The answer is always a resounding “YES!” because it’s such a game changer anytime I do list it in a recipe.
The next question is typical “Well, where can I buy that?” This review is simply to show you the right place to buy this product that makes protein ice cream super thick & fluffy.
And, if you’re at all interested in what this stuff really is, I’ve provided a little excerpt from Bob’s Red Mill explaining it.
Xanthan Gum is a plant-based thickening and stabilizing agent. It is named for the bacteria, Xanthomonas campestris, which plays a crucial role in this description. Technically speaking, xanthan gum is a polysaccharide, which is just a fancy way to say “a string of multiple sugars.” To create xanthan gum, the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium is allowed to ferment on a sugar. The result is a gel that is then dried and milled to create the powder substance.
Xanthan gum has a number of powerful properties. First, it works as an emulsifier, encouraging liquids that normally don’t like one another to mix together. Second, it works as thickener, increasing the viscosity of liquids and batters. Third, it can create a creamy texture.
