Gluten Free Guar Gum
Our Guar Gum is certified gluten-free and makes the perfect thickening agent for soups, sauces, and dairy products. It thickens more easily than cornstarch while also providing a rich source of water-soluble fiber. Guar gum also acts as a binding agent for foods like meat and ice cream.
What is guar gum?
Composed of seeds from the guar plan, a domesticated Indian legume, guar gum is a versatile powder commonly used as an emulsifier and stabilizing agent in foods.
Guar gum holds together many of the foods we enjoy; an important component of ice cream, the gum acts as a binder and prevents ice crystals from forming. It is also commonly used in gluten-free baking to improve the texture and thickness of baked goods. In meat and sausages, the powder is used to improve water retention. It also enhances the volume and thickness of sauces, salad dressings, and soups.
How is guar gum produced?
Guar gum comes from the seeds of the guar plant. These beans are harvested, dried, and then screen-processed into a fine powder.

My first glass was awesome. It gave me a full feeling immediately.Laurie, Covington, GA
This product arrived so fast. Thank-you, I can get started on some more experiments.Michelle, Boise, ID
I ordered almond meal, a bread mix, and guar gum about a month ago and I'm back for more! Great products and super fast service!Beth, Greensboro
When I was first shopping online for gluten-free products I clicked on a site that had an explanation as to why I had to wait four weeks to receive my order. I kept looking. Then I found Nuts Online. I ordered one evening and received my order two business days later. That's SERVICE! I also appreciate the heavy resealable bags in which your products are packaged. They are heavy enough for long-term storage and they stand up on the refrigerator shelf. There is no need to repackage everything at home in storage containers as I do with the flimsy plastic bags most health food stores provide. Fresh products, great packaging and fast, friendly service: I'll be back.Dory, Elkton, MD
