Xanthan is a long chain polysaccharide composed of the sugars glucose, mannose, and glucuronic acid. It is made by the aerobic fermentation process of the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris, which causes black rot on cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli. It is an excellent thickening agent for salad dressings and other recipes, particularly where heating is not necessary. Xanthan gum is not usually sold in markets, but some health food stores and drug stores carry it, as do some coops.
