What Is Guar Gum Powder?

Guar gum powder (also sometimes called guaran) is a common, water soluble food additive that is extracted from guar beans (the seeds of the guar plant, Cyamopsis tetragonoloba). It is commonly used as a thickening agent in yogurts, ice cream, supplements, lotions, and creams. Guar gum powder has eight times the thickening potency as cornstarch and is high in fiber.

performs well, priced well

Helpful for thickening reconstituted powdered peanut butter for that familiar fullness. Useful for stabilizing protein ice cream. 0.5 kilogram looks like it will last through judicious usage for ages.

This is a GREAT thickener for hair conditioners & adds additional conditioning to your formulae. Note:You cannot use it in concert with xanthan gum, b/c xanthan is inactivated by cationics. If you choose to pre-dissolve it, (i haven't tried this yet, but it works with every gel & hydro-colloid i've ever worked with except carbomer powder), it will most likely do so very well in either vegetál glycerine or in your liquid oil fraction. By 'pre-dissolve', i mean 'disperse', b/c its not technically 'dissolving', but, w/a little stirring, this method absolutely eliminates clumps, lumps & 'boogers', & then, when you add your water fraction, it is smooth & thick & perfect! i don't yet know the usage rate/percentage, but will probably check lotioncrafters or makingcosmetics' sites for this info. Happy making! Thank you, bs!!

affordable and fine

I use guar gum as ice cream stabilizer. I used to get the Guar Gum from other vendor, which was expensive and came with the bad flavor. This Guar Gum does not have offensive flavor. And I have nothing to complain about.

Guar Gum

We have been purchasing Guar gum for thickening cream cheese for one of our application we are using. That and the use of Xanthan are great additives to our products. It is very cost effective and stable in many applications.

Guar Gum

I am really happy with the quality of the guar gum which I purchased. I am still learning to work with it because it is a little tricky to dissolve. Warm water does the trick, but I think it needs to be sifted in order not to form clumps. I have dropped into my eyes to great success in clearing up old infections.
