No Xanthan Gum!

We don't use Xanthan gum or any artificial enzymes, potato flour, egg or gums of any kind in our breads. Most industrial gluten free breads use Xanthan gum (Wikipedia says that Xanthan gum is fermented corn and the developing process involved extensive animal testing. It was invented for the oil drilling industry to bind the sludge from drilling. It's great for stage blood and toothpaste)

Question: How did this stuff get into food, especially as it lists all sorts of side effects (on Wikipedia) like migraine etc? If you know any more about Xanthan gums please let us know. It pays to read the label!

In the discussion that followed this Telegraph article some users reported that Xantham gum caused them heart-burn.
