Xanthan Gum as an emulsifier?


#1

Is anyone using it as an emulsifier in their diy? if so, how does it effect the taste, texture, etc.? any recommendations on how to use it?

I used to use 2g of Xanthan Gum in my DIY. It didn’t change the taste as far as I could tell.

But I haven’t used it for a while, since I have stopped my own DIY and started buying DIY from @Spaceman.

I’ve been using it in my DIY, including Schmoylent. It’s great, just use a tiny amount of it per day (less than 1g), unless you want to eat your DIY with a spoon instead of drinking it. :wink:

I added it to my people chow, ended up using 1/2 tsp for 2 liters. I most definitely was not using a spoon! I think @axcho may have had a different experience than I did, maybe his xanthan gum was more concentrated? This is the stuff I bought.

I was using the same brand, @Snowman. I may have been exaggerating slightly, haha. :wink: But I definitely wouldn’t be adding more than a teaspoon for a day’s worth (a quarter teaspoon is more like it).

We played with Xantham Gum for 100%FOOD, but it’s does not help for our blend. Seeds are too heavy and make a saddle sooner or later. So we suggest just shake the bottle before drinking.

Anyway, there was no influence to the taste.
