Xanthan Gum Sensitivity

Recommended Posts

I was recently diagnosed with gluten intolerance and soy intolerance.  I feel,so much better since cutting those foods out.  But every so 

often, something else causes more reactions, and lately, I've identified it as Xanthan gum.  It must be derived from either gluten or soy.  I'm glad to know what it is but disappointed that it makes finding foods I can eat that much more difficult.  Am I the only one?

Nope, I still have trouble with Xanthan gum after being gluten-free for three years.  Funny thing is that my gluten-free hubby has no issues with it at all.  So, I use guar gum instead when baking and do not eat commercial gluten-free bread and things that contain this product.   If I recall, it is corn -based.   I know I do not have a corn intolerance.
