Another alternative Xanthan Gum

n the search for alternatives on Xanthan Gum, Ms. Om Ibrahim discovered thru Ms. Om Hamza’s article in the internet that we could use gelatin also named as “Gelati”.Manufacturers are widely selling this Gelatin and can be found in ice cream, medicine, cosmetic products and as well as salad sauce.
