Xanthan Gum Powder Description
1.Xanthan Gum is a polysaccharide, derived from the bacterial coat of Xanthomonas campestris, used as a food additive and rheology modifier,
2.It used as a food thickening agent (in salad dressings, for example) and a stabilizer (in cosmetic products, for example, to prevent ingredients from separating).
3.It is produced by the fermentation of glucose, sucrose, or lactose by the Xanthomonas campestris bacterium. After a fermentation period, the polysaccharide is precipitated from a growth medium with isopropyl alcohol, dried, and ground into a fine powder.
4.it is added to a liquid medium to form the gum.
5.It produced by a fermentation process using the bacteria Xanthomonas campestris.
6. The composition and structure of xanthan gum produced by commercial fermentation is identical to the naturally occurring polysaccharide formed by Xanthomonas campestris on plants belonging to the cabbage family.

1.Xanthan Gum could be widely used in petroleum, mining, food, pharmaceuticals and textile.
2.Xanthan Gum is a high molecular weight (2-6 million) polysaccharide produced by fermentation of a carbohydrate with Xanthamonas Campestris under the conditions of special nutrient medium after ethano alcohol purifying, drying and milling.
3.It is white-like or light-yellow free-flowing powder with little foul smell.
Types of Xanthan Gum Powder:
1.Food Grade Xanthan Gum
(1)Food Grade Xanthan Gum can be widely used as salt/acid resistant thickener, high efficient suspension agent and emulsifier, high viscosity filing agent in various food, beverage, feedstuff and pet-food.
(2)It can not only enhance the performance of water-keeping and shape-keeping, but also improve the freeze/thaw stability and mouth-feeling of the products.
(3)it can extend the shelf life of the producducts
2.Pharmaceutical & Fine Chemical Grade Xanthan Gum
(1)Pharmaceutical & Fine Chemical Grade Xanthan Gum can be used as thickener and stabilizer in liquid or ointment medicine, cosmetic, oral care products, household lotion.
(2)It can bring excellent effectiveness, such as improving the products shapping and mouth-feeling, preventing the products delamination, convenient for feeling & extrusion, helping products spreading & absorbability.
3.Industrial Grade Xanthan Gum
Acting as an thickener and stabilizer, Industrial Grade Xanthan Gum can be applied to many industrial fields, such as oil drilling, pesticide, pottery & porcelain, printing & dyeing, paint, paper-making, mine-extraction, and so on.
(1)It is specially produced as mud additive for oil drilling. Being an environment friendly and high efficiency mud additive.
(2) It has an excellent tolerance to a wide range of temperature, PH and salinity. It can extremely increase the mud penetrative rate and suspension ability to the drilling-cuttings.
(3) it can also reduce the pressure loss during drilling, stabilize the well-bore, prevent the damage to oil formation, and improve the efficiency of drilling, work-over and completion.
