I Didn't Know This About Xanthum Gum

Recommended Posts

We all know that microwaving regular buns and bread makes them softer and fresher tasting, even if several days old. But when it comes to Gluten Free items, I read recently that its really a necessity unless they are fresh out of the oven. Apparently, after cooling and sitting, even if in plastic bags, the Xanthum Gum 'sets up' causing a more dry texture and needs a quick nuke to reconstitue.
