  • Guar Gum is a thickening agent derived from guar beans that has enjoyed much use in various baking applications. It is primarily used in hypoallergenic recipes that use different types of whole grain flours. Because the consistency of these flours allows the escape of gas released by leavening‚ guar gum is needed to improve the thickness of these flours‚ allowing them to rise as normal flour would.

    This product works by thickening the dough to the proper consistency to prevent the escape of gas released by leavening. It is especially useful as a binder in gluten-free baking.

    Works great for gluten free baking.

    I use Guar Gum Powder by NOW for my gluten free baking and love that the container has a nice resealable top. The product is fresh and it works like other brands but the price her is much cheaper. For those that can't tolerate xanthan gum or just want to use both this is a great brand and a great product. It gives baked good a nice spongey texture Blackbird cookbook recommends this brand.

    Pros

      Love the resealable sturdy container. Shelf stable. Dissolves easily.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
