Product Name: Xanthan Gum
CAS No.: 11138-66-2
H.S. Code.: 39139000
Description: Xanthan gum is a high-molecular-mass anionic polysaccharide produced by fermentation of
carbohydrate with Xanthomonas campestris. It consists of a principal chain of b(1®4)-linked D-glucose units with
trisaccharide side chains, on alternating anhydroglucose units, consisting of a glucuronic acid unit included
between two mannose units. Most of the terminal units contain a pyruvate moiety and the mannose unit adjacent to
the principal chain may be acetylated at C-6. Xanthan gum exists as the sodium, potassium or calcium salt.
