Functions of Xanthan Gum~

Today, I will be sharing the functions of xanthan gum. So, without further ado let’s get started.

1.     Suspension and emulsification

Xanthan Gum has a fantastic suspending effect on insoluble solids and oil droplets.

2.    Excellent water solubility

Xanthan Gum dissolves quickly in water, especially in cold water. Thus, it can avoid the complicated preparation process, which is convenient for usage. However, due to its strong hydrophilicity, it cannot be directly mixed with water. Without sufficient stirring, the outer layer will absorb water and swell into micelles, which prevent water from entering the inner layer. Thus, it will affect the performance of the function. It is suggested to mix xanthan gum with sugar or salt, then slowly add stirring the water, when mixing the solution.

3.    Thickening

Xanthan Gum solution has the characteristics of low concentration and high viscosity (the viscosity of 1% xanthan gum solution is 100 times the viscosity of gelatin), and it is an efficient thickener.

To summarize, UnionChem Xanthan Gum is suitable for all applications. We provide professional service and premium quality products, that support your needs and wants. Find out more with our customer service experts. They will be providing you with professional advice. Contact us now~
