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.
Pure xanthan gum.

This is an excellent product used in cooking for thickening sauces, milk shakes, gravy and a large variety of dishes. It creates a creamy and thicker consistency. I love it!
I ordered this product to thicken up some hot sauce I was making for the first time. It has worked magnificently. I warn you that it is extremely potent and two tablespoons thickened up two liters of hot sauce in a hurry. Very timely delivery and it is probably a lifetime supply for me. I'll certainly use iherb again.
good and cheap

As with Now's guar gum, this is just pure xanthan gum. It serves the purpose of a thickener as expected, and I use it together with guar gum for an extra thickening effect.
Great for homemade mayonnaise!!

I make my own mayonnaise from scratch so I can use very healthy ingredients and oils like light olive oil and rice bran oil. The xanthan gum thickens it up just perfect!!
