Xanthan Gum

Xanthan Gum, which is made mainly from starch, is a high molecular weight polysaccharide produced by fermentation with Xanthomonas Campestris under the conditions of special nutrient medium, pH, O2 – supply and temperature, then precipitated, dried and milled into white-like or light-yellow free-flowing powder.Xanthan gum can be widely used in more than twenty industrial fields, such as food, pharmaceutical, fine chemical, agriculture, oil drilling and exploitation and so on. Compared with other kinds of colloids, xanthan gum has many advantages.
