    Is there a substitute for this, or a place to buy it inexpensively?

    Cook's Thesaurus online recommends using guar gum or pre-gel starch.

    If you are baking gluten-free, the best alternative would be to use guar gum as a substitute.

    Xanthan Gum is used in gluten-free baking and is used to provide structure to the softer gluten-free flours. It helps trap the air bubbles and hold them while your cake is baking- if all the air that you whisk in does not hold, you will end up with a heavy cake.

    Xanthan gum is quite expensive, but only used by 1/2 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons in most recipes. It will store well in an airtight container and keep almost indefinitely.

    IF you are using a bough already blended gluten-free flour for baking, it will already include xanthan and/or other gums. It may not be necessary to add additional gum to your baking recipe.

    Hope this info helps
