Production Process

  • Production of Xanthan Gum via Fermentation

In this process, aerobic submerged fermentation is performed with the help of the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris, a micro-organism found on cabbages. In the fermentation broth, a well aerated medium containing several elements is inoculated with this bacterium. Upon complete fermentation, Xanthan Gums are recovered with the addition of isopropyl alcohol, which causes other elements to precipitate.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
