    Xanthan gum is bad for the good bacteria in your gut. We need more recipes without gums. There are gum free nut milks now (Rude Health for example) but many of the gluten free products in supermarkets still have xantham gum, so it's good to bake our own without gums. http://reclaimingvitality.com/microbiome/  -  20 May 2018
