More about xanthan gum
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. It is also available online.

Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product first and everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
