A gelling agent derived from corn commonly found in commercial salad dressings and ice cream. While it may seem expensive, a little goes a long way.
Forms: Xanthan gum usually comes as a white powder.
Storage: Store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place.
Where to find it: Can be purchased from some major grocery stores, from natural food stores, through a co-op, or online.
Many grocery stores, such as Kroger’s, Bigg’s, Food Lion, Meijer, and Harris Teeter now have a health food aisle where you can find a wide variety of ingredients like raw cashews, nutritional yeast flakes, or almond milk. To save time, consider calling ahead to find out if a store carries an item. Some grocery stores will stock an item if you simply request it.
If your local grocery store doesn’t carry an item that you want and cannot order it for you, you can often find it at a natural food store or through a food co-op or order it online. In fact, ordering online is often less expensive than purchasing from a local store. Check out Amazon Grocery , Something Better Natural Foods, Country Life Natural Foods, Bulk Foods, or Azure Standard for online ordering.
