I have a Celiac Disease and I use xanthan gum together with guar gum as a binder in my home baked gluten free bread – gums, when combined, they work the best. I always add a little of ground flaxseed as well because they really give that elasticity and chewiness to the bread; those of you celiacs who don’t tolerate gums or are simply wishing to avoid them, try to use ground flaxseed only or for even better results use ground flaxseed in combination with some apple fiber powder or psyllium husk to replace the gluten in your GF bread.

I love love love this product. It thickens EVERYTHING great. I have used it to make puddings thicken all sorts of sauces and syrups. It blends so much easier than corn starch and I don't have to use as much.

I use xanthum gum in gluten free baking. Now Foods has a consistently good product that is definitely gluten free.

Thank you so much for this wonderful product. My first attempt of bread making without Xanthan Gum was a disaster, this time my family devoured my bread. 5 Thanks again Sincerly Mare

good but hard to mix (I guess is about Xanthan gum, not about the brand)

We bake our own gluten free breads and it works well for a good price.

The sales speal sounds good but I wish I had read more about it before buying it. I don't think they give enough information on what xanthan gum really is. Probably because people wouldn't buy it. It's a bacteria, often grown on corn or soy or wheat. It can cause gastric distress and can be harmful in babies under 2yrs because it draws water out of the digestion. Anyway it certainly left me with enough doubt to not even want to try it. Although to be fair I guess small amounts are probably ok. Oh and the other thing is that is has been shown to alter gut flora so that didn't appeal either.

I used a little of this to make ice-cream and it held together and thickened all the ingredients very nicely that my ice-cream turned out very creamy and thick. Great for thickening soups and sauces as well. Type "H A N 1 0 2 1" for 5 percent off your current and future orders.
