- a hydrocolloid which is polysaccharide of a microbic origin and carries out functions of a thickener and a strukturoobrazovatel. It is one of the most effective and widely applied materials capable to change plastic properties of production. Gum proposes the solution of problems of producers of the most various production. Ksantan we will well dissolve in cold and hot water, milk, and also in solutions of salt and sugar. Ksantanovy gum is stable in the presence of phosphatic preparations and is steady against mechanical influences and high temperatures.
Xanthannew gum can be used together with other polysaccharides, increasing the properties. In a combination from κ-karraginana and guar gum ksantan increases the viscosity, and in combination with gum of a carob tree gel-forming ability of mix increases.
Ksantanovy gum is used in boiled sausages with a high exit, in the products which are also containing polysaccharides which when sharing give synergy effect, in structures of shpritsovochny brines by production of tselnomyshechny production, in pashtetny products and liverny sausages.
