Xanthan gum widely used as salt/acid resistant thickener, high efficient suspension agent and emulsifier, high viscosity filling agent in various food and beverage. It can not only enhance the performance of water-keeping and shape-keeping, but also improve the freeze/thaw stability and taste of food and beverage products.

Xanthan gum is a sugar that’s fermented by bacteria. The result is a powder that is added to any number of liquids, edible or otherwise, in order to thicken or stabilize them. You find xanthan gum listed in so many products because if it wasn’t there working its thickening magic, most things would either be a watery mess or wouldn’t bind together. For example, xanthan gum replaces the gluten in gluten-free bakery items.

The origin of xanthan gum may be impressive, but we get it. There are a lot of food additives to keep track of, and it’s hard to remember which ones are good and which are bad. Luckily, xanthan gum is pretty harmless, and may even have some health benefits. For example, studies show that xanthan gum may help lower blood sugar, since it’s a soluble fiber. It can also increase feelings of fullness, and, with higher doses, lower cholesterol levels.

Also, those with allergies to corn may need to avoid xanthan gum. Overall, xanthan gum, when consumed within products, appears to be safe. Unless you are allergic to, or otherwise avoiding an ingredient in xanthan gum, which is typically created with corn, soy or wheat, there’s no big reason to seek it out, or avoid it.

Studies have also shown xanthan gum to help stroke patients swallow easier, and cancer tumors to slow their growth. It has also been used as a saliva substitute, and to improve bowel regularity. However, these health effects are unlikely to come from the small amount included in everyday products. The studies referred to above were conducted on sample groups, or mice in the case of the cancer study, and involve higher doses of xanthan gum.
