GENERAL DESCRIPTION & EXTERNAL LINKS

XANTHAN GUM is a high molecular polysaccharide. It is produced from the fermentation of carbonhydrate with Xanthomonas campestris. It is soluble in water, but not in organic solvent. It is used as a rheology control agent in aqueous systems and as a stabilizer for emulsions and suspensions. Its numerous areas of applications cover wide range from the food industry to oil recovery.
