Xanthan Gom

Xanthan gum is a completely tasteless powder that binds, absorbs moisture and traps air bubbles. Thus, it is often used as a thickener in sauces, puddings or honey. Xanthan gum is also an emulsifier, which binds products that normally cannot or hardly be mixed (e.g. water and oil). In the cake decorating world, xanthan gum is also widely used for making edible glue, gum paste and pastillage. Often you only need a teaspoon or less, so this jar from FunCakes will last a long time!
