NOW foods -Xanthan Gum

Xanthan Gum Powder 6 OuncesA company response from NOW foods posted on our Facebook group verifies that this xanthan gum isn't safe for corn allergies. Use caution.

While many companies do claim all the protein is removed during the processing this is not usually always true or at least many corn allergic persons do react to xanthan gum that is grown on corn. (Soy allergies may also want to avoid this product.)

I buy my xanthan gum from Authentic Foods. I have talked directly to the owner of the company, Steven Rice, and he states that the xanthan gum his company sells is grown on a plant in the cabbage family. We pay a bit more for this, but my son has never reacted to it and almost every other brand has been problematic for him. Give him a call if you have questions, he is very helpful.
