Anybody heard of this Gellan Gum and is it safer than other gums?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gellan_gum

It is an ingredient in Almond Dream Almond Milk - Unsweetened.

And when a company lists "Natural Flavors" does anyone know what can they get away with as far as hidden ingredients, when they list this?

I believe all gums exacerbate lectin activity and should be avoided.

Locust bean gum is a hunter superfood. Most gums are not desirable though. Guar and mastic gums are specific toxins for GT1.

Thanks Lloyd and Lola.. well I guess it's back to making homemade...!

On the other hand, it's not listed as an Avoid so that would make it a neutral, right?  

As well, I can find no adverse research on the web about it.

Several things:
  • Gellan is Trademarked - Therefore, artificial, thinking Corn as the culture substrate, etc.
  • It is labelled as E418 - Therefore, there are people with adverse reactions/allergies.



E418 Origin:
An Exopolysaccharide {?} produced by the bacterium Sphingomonas elodea {formerly Pseudomonas elodea sp. ATCC 31461 (US Patent 4377636){ie: a Mutant Strain of the typical S. elodea}, from starch {still thinking Corn}.
Side effects:
High concentrations bring about Flatulence and Bloating, due to fermentation by the intestinal microflora (in the same way as all indigestible Polysaccharides). It has Laxative properties.
