Xanthan gum is a fermented corn sugar polysaccharide. The name is taken from a strain of bacteria that’s used in the fermentation called Xanthomonas campestris. By the way, this is the same bacteria that causes black rot on broccoli and other vegetables.
The gum is categorized as a polysaccharide because it has a long chain of three different types of sugar, all three of which are present in corn sugar.
Organic oat bran is fine on the diet. But remember we’re not talking about the regular oat bran cereal that you find in supermarkets; this is normally sold at health food stores or online.
Here’s a link to a safe brand.
You can mix oat bran, coconut flour and/or buckwheat together to make bread, or you can also eat the oat bran as a hot cereal.
