What Is Xanthum Gum

3 posts in this topic

:unsure: Okay, I give up. I've been trying to find out what Xanthum Gum is and what it's purpose is. I know that I probably sound dumb :wacko: but I can't seem to find an answer.

I asked the lady at the health store and she said it was used as an egg substitute. Is this true? I'm new at this, just diagnosed in November and I still am having a hard time baking any thing that looks remotely like a piece of bread. :unsure:

I know there is someone out there who can help. :(

Please help..... Lucy

It's a derivative from the cell wall of a bacteria. It adds "stickiness" and "structure" to bread in a similar (but not identical) way that gluten does, so that the bread can hold itself together.
