100% Pure All Natural Guar Gum powder is a thickening agent derived from guar beans that has enjoyed much use in various baking applications. It is especially useful as a binder in gluten-free baking. We use this guar gum in all our fresh baked bread products here at Judee's Gluten Free.
Guar gum is also an excellent all-purpose thickener for salad dressings, ice creams, puddings, gravies, sauces, cocktail sauce, soups and more.
Like xanthan gum, measure carefully when using guar gum in gluten-free recipes or you may end up with heavy, stringy baked goods.
Bread and pizza dough recipes: Add 2 teaspoons guar gum per cup of gluten-free flour.
Cake, muffin, quick bread, cookie, and bar recipes: Add 1 teaspoon guar gum per one cup of gluten-free flour.
Suggestion: Multiply the amount of xanthan gum in a recipe by 2 if you plan to use guar gum as a substitute for xanthan gum.
Use guar gum to keep your salad dressing creamy with no separation.
