Now that the gluten free challenge is all but over I wanted to ask some of our gf experts about xanthum gum. Is it absolutely necessary in gluten free baking? Every recipe I read included it and I noticed that so many here did not have it. I know it helps bind but isn't that what eggs do? So my question is, is xanthum gum necessary to produce a gluten free recipe?
