Functions and Applications

1. It helps to prevent oil separation by stabilizing the emulsion, although it is not an emulsifier.
2. Xanthan gum also helps suspend solid particles, such as spices.    
3. Xanthan gum helps create the pleasant texture in many ice creams, along with guar gum and locust bean gum.    
4. Xanthan gum is also a preferred method of thickening liquids for those with swallowing disorders, since it does not change the color or flavor of foods or beverages
