Description : Guar gum is a natural food thickener used in cooking and baking to bind, thicken and emulsify gluten-free ingredients. Without guar gum, your gluten-free baked goods will most likely end up as a pile of crumbs. It has significantly more thickening ability than cornstarch for less the cost.
Guar gum, also called guaran, is a galactomannan. It is primarily the ground endosperm of guar beans. The guar seeds are dehusked, milled and screened to obtain the guar gum. It is typically produced as a free-flowing, off-white powder.
