Although I am not gluten intolerant, I recently picked up the Flying Apron cookbook to try and give baking a go for the first time since I've recovered from an eating disorder. A more health-concious cookbook may be just what I need to get back into my baking groove, and I am really very excited. (I splurged on matcha powder to make muffins!)

That said, one concern of mine is xantham gum. I do my best to avoid GMOs, at least in my own home, and from what I know it's made from bacteria grown on corn. Does this expose the consumer to GMOs? What are the most reliable brands for those of us trying to avoid them?

Thank you!

i suppose you can search for organic xanthan gum. (i have no idea if that exists.) also, most of the GMO corn is used for animal feed. sweet corn i don't think has any GMO varieties. i have no idea if the xanthan gum growers use sweet corn or animal feed corn though.

I solved it for once and for all -- and for everyone -- by intentionally leaving behind some 9-lives burritos... ~Lorelei4mc

Bob's Red Mill sells xanthan gum I think? That would be GMO free for certain, since I don't think BRM goes in for those shenanigans.
