The applications of guar gum are endless! It is used in many products that we eat daily – ice cream, cake, cheese, dough, and some sauces. It is used frequently due to its great thickening ability and for its great stabilizer ability to hold ingredients together (such as keeping cake from being crumbly). And for the kids: it makes great slime just mixing a little with water!!!
Guar gum is almost eight times as powerful as cornstarch for thickening applications. It is easy to use because it does not require heat to thicken liquids. It is made from a bean called the cluster bean or guar bean which is grown in Pakistan and India. Guar gum has similar properties to xanthan gum and they can substituted for each other in many instances.
Make sure to store in a cool, dry location.
