Production Process

  • Production of Xanthan Gum via Fermentation

In this process, aerobic submerged fermentation is performed with the help of the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris, a micro-organism found on cabbages. In the fermentation broth, a well aerated medium containing several elements is inoculated with this bacterium. Upon complete fermentation, Xanthan Gums are recovered with the addition of isopropyl alcohol, which causes other elements to precipitate.
