Why Do We Refuse to Use Xanthan Gum?

Gluten Free Cookies With No Xanthan Gum In Them

Oh, wonderful cookie lover, it comes down to one awful word: laxative.

Xanthan gum, guar gum and many other gums are laxatives. Click on any trusted medical resource  to see that these gums are used for many functions including making people go to the bathroom.

Gums are not good for your tum or your bum. It can cause stomach aches and diarrhea without eating that much of it, especially if you are sensitive to it.

It’s hard to be gluten free. You have limited options, especially for ready to eat, snack foods.  And the reply from the food industry is to give you gums, so you can have an upset stomach and even worse. 

What a terrible response!

Your Wickedly Wholesome cookies never have gums added because they are not needed.  It just takes a bit of extra work to develop a cookie recipe that holds together and uses the same ingredients you have in your own kitchen.  We promise you that every cookie you eat from us uses the best quality ingredients because that is what you deserve.
