Background and Objectives: The quality of cakes made of wheat flour depends on the quantity and quality of its gluten proteins; however, these proteins may have side effects for some people, including the patients with celiac, and the only way to cure this disease is to take a lifelong gluten-free diet. Materials and Methods: This research aims to produce gluten- free cake by using rice flour and xanthan and tragacanth gums, including two treatments of xanthan gum (0.5 &1 %), two treatments of tragacanth gum (0.5 & 1%), four combination treatments of xanthan gum and tragacanth, and one control treatment (without gum). The effects of tragacanth and xanthan gums o...
