Guar gum is a water-soluble fiber that works in the digestive tract and has many beneficial results. Since it has the ability to bind water molecules‚ guar gum normalizes the moisture content of stool; this helps promote regular bowel movements. As a result‚ guar gum can be used as a laxative due to its ability to soften the stool. It may also prove effective in relieving bowel problems such as constipation‚ irritable bowel syndrome‚ and diarrhea. In addition‚ it can help if you’re suffering from chronic conditions like diverticulosis‚ Crohn's disease‚ or colitis.
Due to Guar Gum’s unique water binding capabilities‚ it may also work to promote weight loss. The reasoning behind this claim is that once Guar gum is in the stomach‚ it will latch onto the other food particles that your body is digesting. This causes the body to feel full‚ which may decrease appetite—thereby making it easier to reduce your caloric intake.
Studies show that Guar gum may also be linked to promoting lower levels of cholesterol and glucose because it’s able to absorb these and other substances (including carbohydrates and sugar) during the digestion process; this could help diabetic individuals maintain normal blood sugar levels after eating.

Overall Rating for Guar Gum Dietary Fiber Powder - 16 oz (453.6 Grams)
By Dee P.
Outstanding Guar Gum
Very pleased with this guar gum product and an excellent price. It works great in baking my breads and as an additional fiber source since I have Crohns. I would give it 5 stars except that it is just a bit more difficult to mix than some of the other brands. That could be because it seems Finer and some others are a coarser powder. In baking I prefer the finer powder but in mixing in water you have to stir it a little more. No big thing. It has almost No Taste which is a Big Plus as some of the Guar Gums have a bit of a blah taste. This is easy to gulp down. No matter what my gluten-free bread recipe calls for-I throw a teaspoon in a WOW it makes a Great Bread. If youre adding Chia Sunflower Seeds and Flaxseeds to your breads it helps hold the bread together better. You get nice slices when you cut into it. Just another tip if youre making gluten free breads try using Reynolds non-stick Grill Foil. Line the inside of your bread pan with it and lap about an inch over the top. You dont need any oil or flours that way. It makes the perfect bread. When the bread is done just lift the foil right out of the pan and the bread comes right out. No sticking at all no matter how sticky the batter was. You can do that with anything but gluten free batters are especially sticky. I even use the foil again for another loaf because it comes out perfectly clean.
Great for baking Great Price Hardly No Taste
A little harder to mix than some
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
