  1. Something I found out when talking to a gentleman who owns a company that makes xanthan gum is that they use alcohol – usually ethanol, which is of course not good for lots of corn folks – during part of the processing of the xanthan gum, too. So even if it’s not made from corn, it’s going to have some potential contact with a corn derived product. :-/
