Xanthan Gum


Xanthan gum, is a kind of extracellular polysaccharide, which is produced by Xanthomnas campestris with carbohydrate as the main raw material (such as corn starch) by fermentation engineering.It with unique rheological property, good water solubility, on the thermal stability and acid and alkali, and a variety of salts has good compatibility, as thickener, suspending agent, emulsifier, stabilizer, can be widely used in food, oil, medicine and so on more than 20 industries, is currently the world's largest production and has a wide range of USES of microbial polysaccharides.


Food used Xanthan gum:


Xanthan gum is widely used in food-making as Thickeners, Emulsifiers.As salt/acid resistant thickener, high efficient suspension agent and emulsifier, high viscosity filling agent in various food, beverage, feedstuff and pet-food. It can not only enhance the performance of water-keeping and shape-keeping, but also improve the freeze/thaw stability and mouth-feeling of the products.


(1) Xanthan gum is used in baked goods (bread, cakes, etc.) to improve the water retention and softness of baked goods during baking and storage to improve the mouthfeel and extend shelf life of baked goods;

(2) Xanthan gum plays a role in tenderizing and improving water retention in meat products;

(3) Thickening and stabilizing food structure in frozen foods;

(4) adding xanthan gum to the jam can improve the taste and water holding capacity and improve the quality of the product;

(5) It can be used as a thickening and suspending effect for beverages, making the mouthfeel smooth and natural.

(6) The use of xanthan gum in ice cream and dairy products (combined with guar gum and locust bean gum) can stabilize the product;

(7) Compounds such as xanthan gum, carrageenan and locust bean gum are also commonly used in jelly and candy processing.



Industrial Grade Xanthan gum

Xanthan gum can be applied to many industrial fields,such as oil drilling, pesticide, ceramic,printing & dyeing,painting,paper-making,mine-extraction and so on.

It is specially produced as mud additive for oli drilling, Being an environment friendly and high efficient mud additive,it has an excellent tolerance to a wide range of temperature,PH and alinity.It can extremely increase the mud penetraion rate and suspensionability to the drill cutting.Meanwhile,it can also reduce the pressure loss during drilling,stabilize the well-bore, prevent the damage to oil formation,and improve the efficiency of drilling, work-over and completion.


Due to its excellent salt resistance and heat resistance, xanthan gum is used in drilling in special environments such as oceans and high-salt formations, and can be used as an oil-displacng agent to improve oil recovery.
