Xanthan Gum is an essential ingredient for gluten-free baking. It acts as an emulsifier and a binder and adds volume to gluten-free breads, cookies, cakes, and other baked goods.

In the world of gluten-free baking, xanthan gum plays the crucial role of imitating gluten. In baking, gluten is what makes dough "doughy." It gives the dough elasticity, as well as viscosity. Those properties help to hold a cookie together while it bakes on a sheet in the oven, and they enable cakes and breads to hold onto the gas bubbles that form inside them - this allows them to rise and take shape. Xanthan gum helps replicate these properties in recipes that do not contain gluten. It is a popular ingredient for gluten-free scratch baking.
