Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gluten Free flour recipe I have a gluten free house because of lots of celiacs! This flour is the best: 24 ounces white rice flour 7.5 ounces brown rice flour 7 ounces potato starch 3 ounces tapioca starch 2 tsp xanthan gum Everything is from Bob's Red Mill except the Xanthan gum is from NOW foods (and now I know how to spell it :) ). This makes great flour. We substitute it in all our recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I needed a thickener for soups and this one finally does the trick. It works a lot like cornstarch but since I don't eat corn or flour anymore I was at a loss for a good thickener. I'm very happy with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Xanthum as Good as the Name Brands This is a quality Xanthum gum product. I'm as happy with it as the name brands. I use it in gluten free baking (I bake bunches of breads# It works great along with guar gum in my smoothies and my fruit ice creams. I love freezing bananas in chunks, putting 2 in the blender with 1 level teaspoon guar gum or xanthum gum, about 1/2 to 2/3 cup almond milk #or milk) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and a little sweetener to taste. YUMMY Ice Cream!!! I've also used strawberries and omitted the vanilla, but you could probably use any fruit. Why use the guar gum or xanthum gum? Because, when you go to freeze any leftovers, they'll freeze solid. The guar gum & xanthum gum keeps them like ice cream. Read the ingredients on your ice box next time. It's what they use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nathan gum I am a gluten free person, so xanthan gum works very well instead of gluten and makes it even possible to bake without gluten

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick not thin This product is being used as a thickening agent for my baked goods & gravies, in conjunction with my change to a Keto Adaptive lifestyle. I have not been disappointed with the quality, the fine grind, the mix ability. I would order this again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thickens my morning protein drink A half teaspoon of this is all that's needed to thicken up a runny protein drink.. I mix my protein drink up in a blender with ice to chill it and thicken it a bit, then when completely mixed, I add 1/2 teaspoon of this product with the blender set on high..It only takes a few seconds to thicken it.. It creates a thick, creamy malt/shake like drink.. Plus the added bonus of fiber... Great price on Swanson's, too..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for gluten free baking I use lots of Xanthan Gum, because I bake many gluten free products. This is the best price I have ever seen. This works great. I have never had any problems with it, and appreciate being able to get it so easily at a great price from Swanson's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have used this in my gluten free bread and gingersnap recipes and it has a wonderful texture. The price just can't be beat. I bought two bottles because I bake A LOT and I am looking forward to making many more items for my family. It comes in an airtight bottle and stores beautifully in its own packaging in the pantry. What was very cool about this particular purchase was I was able to use my rebate certificate from a previous purchase, so the two bottles were actually FREE with my coupon and all I had to do was pay for the shipping. I will buy this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xanthan Gum Wow, I just recently learned about Bob's Gluten Free All Purpose Flour and using XANTHAN GUM with it, and I'm saying so-long to the coconut flour that I haven't cared too much for! The Xanthan Gum is great and works fabulously with the above flour. I made easy biscuits to put in my chicken pot pie stew, and I'm so happy because I can now make biscuits again! I had to give them up for a few years because of not wanting to use wheat flour and having no other appropriate ingredients to make good biscuits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works!!! This product works to make gluten free products hold together. Mix with the gluten free flour per recommended amount and see it work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good. NOW is a good brand. good quality & reasonable prices. I've never used X gum before. So far, I've used it to make vinegarette salad dressing & it turned out fine. It takes very, very little, and you need to sprinkle it in & beat it well. I took one star because some general directions as to how much to use would be nice (it says how many servings per container, but does not give any approximate amounts to use for a particular application). Not a deal-breaker, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for Bread Makers! When I first began making bread I thought there was no way I'd go through this jar very fast, but now we are loving the gluten free breads and pizza's so much that next order I will get the large jar of Xanthan gum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must have I use this for many things ... from making topical applications to thickening up gravy or freezer jam, to suspending ingredients in liquid, as a fake quick-acting pseudo-emulsifier, to adding smoothness and body. It takes such an infinitesimal amount so one bottle lasts a long long time (I go through a bottle every 2 years or so). Because it's amazing ability to absorb water it's advisable to first mix it with another dry product that easily dissolves, like sugar or salt ... alternatively, when you don't want to effect the taste you can add it to a bit of oil, then stir that result into the liquid ... this is generally how I get it to easily incorporate into say something like gravy that is too thin. Like with all thickeners, it should not be the primary thickener (or the texture will be weird). Rather use it as a supplemental thickener. Note that saccharides (like table sugar) will give it more rigidness (thicker).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Low Carbers Takes the place of corn starch and flour when you thicken pudding and gravies. For those on a low carb diet it is a miracle and an asset to any kitchen. Swanson always has the lowest price available for Xanthan Gum as well. Great Product and a regular staple in our kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price Because I am trying to cook with gluten free products, many of the recipes call for xanthan gum. This is a quality product for a great price!
Date published: 2012-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xanthan gum is incredibly useful in cooking People are scared off by the weird name, but this is just a soluble fiber that holds a lot of water and so thickens things up. Xanthan is the only common gum that has a "shear thinning" property, so that it essentially gels up when not being stirred, but then is liquid enough to pour and to release flavor in your mouth when it is agitated. Guar gum and other food gums just thicken and so they make things seem slimy. Soup too thin? Want an oil and vinegar salad dressing that doesn't separate? Want the poppy seeds to not settle out of that dressing? Want your homemade ice cream to be smoother? Xanthan gum does it all. It is incredibly potent, essentially flavorless, and provides a little fiber. I only docked it one star on convenience because it can clump up when you add it to liquid, and there are xanthan gums (hard to find, though) that don't clump up as much. To prevent the clumping, just pre-mix with another dry ingredient.
