Finding Xanthan Gum With The Walmart App
If you haven’t been able to find Xanthan Gum anywhere and there is no member of staff available to help, you should install the Walmart app, you can then use it to check if Xanthan Gum is in stock and where it is.
If it is in stock then the app will tell you which aisle it can be found in and where exactly in the aisle you can find it.
To do this you will need to:
- Setup a Walmart account if you don’t have one (takes two minutes).
- Find the Walamart you’re in using your Zipcode.
- Type “Xanthan Gum” in the search bar and tap search.
The app will then tell you if it is in stock, which aisle to find it in and where exactly in the aisle to find it.
