Description

Xanthan gum is a microbial desiccation-resistant polymer prepared commercially on a large scale by aerobic submerged fermentation from Xanthomonas campestris. 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. It hydrates rapidly in cold water without lumping to give a reliable viscosity, encouraging its use as thickener, stabilizer, emulsifier and foaming agent.
