Xanthan Gum Production Cost Report

Xanthan gum is a natural polysaccharide, which is frequently used as a thickener and food additive. It is formed when the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris ferments carbohydrates. It is purely sourced from plants. It is easily transformed into a sticky gel-like component gum. Owing to its rheological qualities, various food products are benefitted from the thickening, emulsifying benefits of xanthan gum.  It also finds its application as a constituent in toothpaste.

The average molecular weight of xanthan gum is 2000 kDa. It dissolves in most acids and bases. It is water soluble. The density of xanthan gum is 9.4 ppg and its vapour pressure is 0.001000 mmHg at 25.00 °C. The boiling point of xanthan gum is 311.00 °C at 760.00 mm Hg and its flash point is 280.00 °F (137.50 °C). It is white or tan powder in appearance. The melting point of xanthan gum is >175°C.

Owing to its thickening and stabilising properties, xanthan gum is principally used in the food sector. It helps in enhancing the texture, taste, quality, and appearance of the food products and increases the shelf life. Due to its efficient properties, it is also utilised in bakery items, fruit juices, soups, ice cream, sauces, gravies, and gluten-free products, which is further propelling the xanthan gum market growth. With the increasing awareness of health problems, xanthan gum is in high demand across the globe. The development of xanthan gum is also encouraged by strong governing regulations.
