About: Xanthan Gum is a specialty spice that has many uses in the kitchen, from a thickener in dairy-free ice creams to a gluten replacement in baked goods. Xanthan Gum functions very similarly to gelatin in recipes but it is completely vegan as opposed to gelatin which comes from animal sources. This makes Xanthan Gum perfect for those with food allergies or restrictions.
To use xanthan gum in recipes, use about 1/8 teaspoon per cup of liquid and combine these in a blender, not by hand. It will "gum" almost instantly and form clumps if not constantly in motion while it is being incorporated into the liquid.
For sauces, blending the xanthan gum first with a bit of oil before adding the soy milk or rice milk produces the best taste and texture, as this gives the sauce richness and depth that would normally be achieved by cream, butter, or eggs. The more xanthan gum is used in a liquid the thicker it will become.
