Xanthan Gum is made from the outer layer of a tiny, inactive bacterium called Xanthomonas campestris. It is an excellent all-purpose thickener for dressings, gravies and sauces. Its unique binding ability makes it the ideal substitute for gluten in gluten-free baking.
Use the quantities suggested of xanthan gum per cup of flour used. For example, if you are making cookies with 3 cups of flour, you would add 3/4 tsp xanthan gum.
|Baked Good||Quantity of Xanthan Gum to Use|
|Cookies||1/4 tsp per cup of flour|
|Cakes||1/2 tsp per cup of flour|
|Muffins and Quick Breads||3/4 tsp per cup of flour|
|Breads||1 to 1 1/2 tsp per cup of flour|
|Pizza Crust||2 tsp per cup of flour|
If using to thicken liquid, it is the best to first make a slurry of the xanthan gum with a small amount of liquid (oil or other fat is best) before incorporating into the larger batch. This will help eliminate clumping.
