Clean Label Ingredient

Xanthan Gum

Yes, xanthan gum is considered “clean label”.


Xanthan gum is a naturally extracted thickening agent and stabilizer, produced by the fermentation of sugar. It can be found in dressings, sauces, ice creams, and health-related products, like toothpaste. It can also be used to replace gluten as a thickener in gluten-free foods.

Note: Xanthan is one of the few hydrocolloids that can be easily found at grocery stores.
