Can gluten free baking be done without xanthan or guar gum?
Some are allergic and I haven't found much info about this.
You can bake gluten-free without xanthan or guar gum, but baked goods will tend to crumble and fall apart; the gums substitute for the gluten as far as structure goes. Why not give a recipe a try, see what happens? Obviously, the crumbling wouldn't be as big an issue in, say, cookies as it would be in bread or cake...
LOL the first time I baked it was cornbread and no xanthan gum. It bubbled over the pan, was amusing.
I made one thing recently that didn't have xanthan in it and while it turned out fine I can't remember what it was! I think I need some sleep.
