However, 15 grams of the stuff would be around 3 to 4 teaspoons, depending on volume, and the amount of xanthan gum in gluten free flours can be around a half teaspoon to one teaspoon per cup, for types such as rice flours, so that would be enough for 3 to 4 cups of flour, or .... an entire large batch of cookies. Or 2 small loaves of bread. Or a cake.
How many cookies were you planning to eat, anyway ?

I remember vividly 2 years ago, we stopped at the grocery store and I purchased a box of expensive, nice, tasty gluten free cookies as a treat, and I ate some on the way home after kayaking. Like maybe 2 cookies.
Stomach felt like it had a rock in it by the time we got home. Thought I was going to die, by midnight.
Still am not sure what the ingredient was, but... in general, I do not eat store bought cookies anymore.
I know I'm flax and millet sensitive, and likely prone to oat contamination problems, but it likely was the soy flour that got me that time. Flax is in so many gluten-free foods, took me awhile to figure that one out.
