Xanthan gum Quick detail:
Xanthan gum, also known as xanthan gum, is produced by Xanthomnas campestris with carbohydrates as the main raw material (such as corn starch) through a fermentation process with a wide range of extracellular microorganisms Polysaccharides. It has unique rheological properties, good water solubility, stability to heat, acid and alkali, and good compatibility with various salts. It can be used as a thickener, suspending agent, emulsifier, and stabilizer. Used in more than 20 industries such as food, petroleum, medicine, etc., it is currently the world’s largest production scale and extremely versatile microbial polysaccharide.
