Xanthan gum is a largely indigestible polysaccharide that is produced by bacteria called Xanthomonas Campestris. The bacteria is place in a growth environment that contains sugars and other nutrients, and the resulting product of bacterial fermentation is purified, dried, powdered, and sold as xanthan gum. The powder is commonly used as a food thickening agent (in salad dressings, for example) and a stabilizer (in cosmetic products, for example, to prevent ingredients from separating).

It is commonly used to:

  • Use as a bulk-forming laxative to treat constipation.
  • Lowering blood sugarin people with diabetes.
  • Lowering cholesterollevels in people with diabetes.
  • Use as a saliva substitute for dry mouth.

A natural carbohydrate, Xanthan Gum is made of corn sugar treated and fermented with the bacteria Xanthomonas campestris, from which Xanthan Gum gets its odd-sounding name.
