  • 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.

    I like using Guar Gum Powder by NOW Real Food® in dairy free mayo. It helps it not separate after several days.


    Pros

      I like using it in plant based cooking.

    Cons

      A slight bitter taste.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Works well!

    Guar Gum Powder by NOW Real Food works really well in gluten free cooking. I use less than the package suggests as it does not work well in my bread machine if I use the recommended amount.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
