Xanthan Gum, which is corn sugar fermented with a microorganism called Xanthomonas campestris, makes a very good thickening agent. Just a tiny amount of it can increase a liquid's viscosity, and it is quite versatile, since it stays stable in a wide range of temperatures and pH levels.
Xanthan Gum often features in gluten-free baked goods, since it's gluten-free itself and helps add volume and viscosity to batter-based baked goods like bread or fried ones like pancakes. But it can also make an excellent addition to many sauces, dressings, or gravies, since it can keep solid particles like spices suspended and prevent the oil from becoming separated from the vinegar or the rest of the solution after it's mixed. It can also produce a smoother texture in many types of foods, such as homemade ice cream, sorbet or gelato, and some use it as a substitute for gelatin in some recipes.
