Product Overview

This product works by thickening the dough to the proper consistency to prevent the escape of gas released by leavening. It is especially useful in allergy breads; rice, soy, potato, etc 100% Natural. Derived entirely from guar beans. As the label on the Guar gum powder suggests this product is used as a baking aid for recipes that use gluten free flours. Gluten is needed to impart elasticity to the dough which would allow it hold in the gases formed by fermentation which causes the rising effect. Guar and xanthan gums act as a substitute for the missing gluten in gluten free recipes. If you want to use this powder as a water soluble fiber, consider adding 1/2 teaspoon to 12-16oz of filtered water and drink immediately.

If you like a thicker Protein shake that makes you feel fuller Guar Gum is an excellent choice for shakes or other sauces/foods that need a little more consistency. No taste or smell is associated with this product. Key point use a little and increase in tiny increments or you can ruin the item you are trying to thicken.

Excellent food thickener. Can be used with hot or cold liquids. I put 1/2 teaspoon in my protein shake (meal substitute) to make me feel fuller. A little goes a long way, and it's inexpensive.

I really love this product, it's perfect for making protein 'frostys' when paired with xantham gum! A little goes a long way with gums so the 8oz last forever. 10/10!
