First mix the flour with xanthan gum and salt, add water and knead until smooth dough. Then let it rise for 15 minutes at about 30℃. Then use the 7th gear, 5th gear, and 1st gear of the dough rolling machine to roll 3, 3, and 2 times respectively. Finally, use a mold with a diameter of 60/80 mm to cut into several dumpling wrappers.

2. Application of xanthan gum in cakes:
Chiffon cake is a dessert, which is a type of sponge cake. The main raw materials for making it include vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, flour, etc. Chiffon cake usually requires beating egg whites into foam to provide enough air to support the volume of the cake. Because chiffon cake contains enough vegetable oil and eggs, its texture is very moist and it is very popular among the public. Xanthan gum can improve the water retention and softness of baked products and extend the shelf life. At the same time, it can improve the structure and distribution of cake pores, increase specific volume, and prevent cake collapse. First, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until wet peaks form, add sugar, and continue beating until dry peaks form. Then mix the sugar and xanthan gum, and beat with the egg yolk until it turns milky white. Add oil and water in 3 batches and mix well. Then add flour/baking powder/salt to the egg yolk liquid, mix well at medium speed, pour in the egg whites in 3 batches, turn over to mix, and shake to degas. Then raise the heat to 170°C, lower the heat to 150°C, and bake for 40 minutes. Finally, turn it upside down to cool down and take off the mold.
