What is Xanthan Gum?
Xanthan gum is a popular thickening agent that is high in fibre. It can be used to emulsify and thicken protein shakes, bind ingredients when baking and to thicken salad dressings and sauces.
Who is Xanthan Gum suitable for?
Xanthan gum is suitable for anyone who is looking to add a source of fibre to their diet. It is completely gluten free and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It can help to improve the blending quality of food and to keep shakes blended for longer.
How should I use Xanthan Gum?
Xanthan gum can simply be added to water, juice, shakes and sauces to thicken them. Alternatively, a small amount of Xanthan gum can be added into dough mixtures and batters to help bind ingredients together.
What goes well with Xanthan Gum?
Xanthan gum goes well with our whey protein range and a dose as little as 1g can help to thicken a scoop of Whey Protein 80. It can also be used with Chia Seeds and Whole Hemp Seeds in homemade smoothies and sauces to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the container.
