Other products with which xanthan gum may be blended include, but are not limited to, sugars, minerals, and salts. Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide produced by aerobic fermentation of Xanthomonas campestris. The chemical structure of the repeating pentasaccharide monomer unit consists of a backbone of two P–1,4–D-Glucose monosaccharide units, the second with a trisaccharide side chain consisting of P–D-Mannose-(1,4)-P–DGlucuronic acid-(1,2)-a-D-Mannose monosaccharide units. The terminal mannose may be pyruvylated and the internal mannose unit may be acetylated.
