Xanthan Gum Production Cost Analysis 2020

Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide with several commercial uses, including as a standard food additive. It can be made or prepared from simple sugars using a fermentation method. Xantham gum got its name from the species of bacteria that is used in the process, i.e., Xanthomonas campestris. 

It is an active thickening agent as well as a stabilizer that prevents ingredients from separating. Just 1% of xanthum gum can provide a significant improvement in the viscosity of a liquid. In foods, xanthan gum is extensively used in salad dressings as well as in sauces. It also helps suspend solid particles, like the spices. It helps produce the desired texture in many ice creams. Toothpaste often contains xanthan gum that acts as a binder to keep the product uniform. It also helps thicken industrial egg substitutes made from egg whites, to replace the fat and emulsifiers found in yolks. In gluten-free baking, the polysaccharide is utilised to provide the dough or batter the stickiness that would otherwise be achieved with gluten. 

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Xanthan Gum production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
