Xanthan gum is 200 mesh compared to the standard 80 mesh this means it is finer than standard Xanthan gum making it easier to disperse and dissolve. Xanthan gum is a food additive and commonly used as a thickener, stabiliser, emulsifier and foaming agent. It is mainly considered to be non-gelling and used for the control of viscosity due to the tenuous associations endowing it with weak-gel shear-thinning properties. However when added to other hydrocolloids, gels can be produced. Xanthan gum can be added to Agar Agar and kappa carrageenan to form a more stable gel. The consistent water holding ability of Xanthan gum may be used for the control of syneresis and to retard ice recrystallisation in freeze-thaw situations. Available in 100 g pack.
