Hey Mamagibbs,

I know this thread is quite old but I did feel the need to clarify for others this issue.

Xantham Gum is a polysaccharide which means it contains three types of sugars all binded into one big mess. It is also derived from a form of mould so I would stay far away from it, which is a shame cause it’s an excellent thickening agent.

Also Guar Gum is the same except is is only a disaccharide meaning it is two sugars joined together, and not produced from mould however it is obviously still not good for those suffering candida.
