Gluten Free Xanthan Gum
Use Gluten Free Xanthan Gum to add thickness and volume to bread and other gluten-free baked goods. This is a popular thickener among customers with allergies to gluten.
Because baked goods made with wheat flour depend on gluten for structure, those made with gluten-free flours will often require a thickener to keep them from crumbling. For this reason, many gluten-free baking recipes call for Xanthan Gum to replace the elasticity and texture of gluten. For every cup of gluten-free flour in a recipe, use 1 tsp of gum for cakes and cookies and 2 tsp of gum for breads and pizza.
Use Gluten Free Xanthan Gum sparingly, as too much can lead to an overly gummy texture (this 4 oz bag should last you a while!). Xanthan Gum is more effective when more types of gluten-free flour are mixed together. There are approximately 3 cups per pound.
A natural carbohydrate, Xanthan Gum is made of corn sugar treated and fermented with the bacteria Xanthomonas campestris, from which Xanthan Gum gets its odd-sounding name. Read here for more on Xanthan Gum and its many uses.

“Wow! That was quick. Love the packaging. I will be baking this weekend thanks to your excellent service. I will definitely recommend your company to friends.”

“I received two separate orders from Nuts.com this week and both were exactly what I needed! This was the first time I was using Nuts.com and I honestly took all the positive reviews with a grain of salt (after all, companies can easily get rid of negative ones)--but WOW. It took just TWO DAYS each time I ordered.
The Taro powder has been excellent for making hot taro tea/lattes.
The gluten free AP baking flour and xanthan gum were so cheap I couldn't resist buying them as I am trying to do more alternative baking, inspired by my coworker who has Celiac.
The egg replacer was also cheap compared to what I've seen in stores and because I'm a vegetarian and health conscious, I can start trying out some vegan recipes too now! :)
Thank you nuts.com for your efficient and fast ordering and shipping--and your LOW prices!! I'm definitely a customer for life :)”

“We needed an item for Thanksgiving at the last minute and Nuts Online delivered on time and saved the day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”
Daphne, Lethbridge, Alberta July 11, 2011
“I just wanted to let you know that my girlfriends mom is celaic and she is so excited about your products and they are so good. She has told everyone in her celiac group all about you and how great you are. Thank you”

“When I was first shopping online for gluten-free products I clicked on a site that had an explanation as to why I had to wait four weeks to receive my order. I kept looking. Then I found Nuts Online. I ordered one evening and received my order two business days later. That's SERVICE!
I also appreciate the heavy resealable bags in which your products are packaged. They are heavy enough for long-term storage and they stand up on the refrigerator shelf. There is no need to repackage everything at home in storage containers as I do with the flimsy plastic bags most health food stores provide.
Fresh products, great packaging and fast, friendly service: I'll be back.

“My daughter has Celiacs and i am always scouting around for alternate flours....I absolutely cannot believe i did not find you before now. I received my order today...it is awesome and i no longer have to scout around anywhere else !!!

“Your service was better than any other online order I placed this holiday season - and that's a lot. And to top it off, I got a surprise packet of gummy bears. Just what my sweet tooth wanted! Good work!”

“That was fast shipping!! Your prices are also on the mark. I will certainly be ordering again soon. ”

“Now I believe what you said, you are really "Nuts". How did you get my order to me in a 24 hour time? I have dealt with many companies but none is like yours when it comes to customer services. You have won a customer for life. Two NUTS up.”
