Xanthan Gum prices are expected to skyrocket in the coming months.
By now you have probably heard about the ITC anti-dumping investigations against imports of xanthan gum from China and Austria, who allegedly sold xanthan gum in the US at less than fair value. These investigations will continue, and the preliminary determination is due in mid-November 2012.
Because of these investigations and the impending anti-dumping tariff on xanthan gum, our lab is developing a xanthan gum replacement, which will be catered to each customer individually.
