The introduction of Xanthan gum:
Xanthan gum is a kind of microbial exopolysaccharide which is produced by Xanthomonas wild rape with carbohydrate as main raw material (such as corn starch) through fermentation engineering. It with unique rheological property, good water solubility, on the thermal stability and acid and alkali, and a variety of salts has good compatibility, as thickener, suspending agent, emulsifier, stabilizer, can be widely used in food, oil, medicine and so on more than 20 industries, is currently the world's largest production and has a wide range of USES of microbial polysaccharides.
