What can be used as a substitute for xanthan gum in recipes?

Use the same amount of flax seed as xanthan gum called for in the recipe, but mix it with two times the water. If a recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of xanthan gum, use 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed plus 2 tablespoons water.

Can you use baking powder instead of xanthan gum?

Outside of baking, xanthan gum is also used to thicken sauces, gravies, dressings, and ice cream. Similar to baking powder and baking soda, a small amount of xanthan gum is typically enough to do the trick. Many recipes won't call for more than a tablespoon of the powder total.

Can you substitute gelatin for xanthan gum?

Xanthan gum is a thickening, stabilizing and emulsifying agent made from polysaccharide, which is a gluten-free, corn-based product. It can safely replace gelatin in any recipe that calls for it, with no extra preparation or baking needed. Find xanthan gum in the baking aisle of your grocery store.
