Guar gum – interesting facts

16. August 2016

The food industry has been an active consumer of guar gum for many years – why not follow suit? The 100% natural flour of the guar plant has become an integral part of a wide range of products. The flour owes its increasing popularity to its special characteristics. Guar gum is a vegetable-based food additive used as a thickening or gelling agent in the production of many products, including:

  • jam
  • ice cream
  • dairy products and milk-based drinks
  • soups
  • sauces
  • baked goods
  • and many others.

Guar gum has been approved as an ingredient of food products. Its carbohydrates absorb large amounts of water and provide many products with a desirable consistency and structure, especially low-carb flours and gluten-free bread. It is no surprise that more and more people enjoy and take advantage of all the benefits offered by guar gum.

For which other purposes can I use guar gum?

In vegan and vegetarian cooking, the flour is used as a thickening and binding agent. It can be used as a vegan substitute for egg yolk or to thicken dips, sauces and compotes. The completely flavourless product does not affect the taste of the final product. Simply add guar gum to your vegetable or meat dishes, desserts or cold soups. But there is more – guar gum has another great side effect: It immediately makes you feel less hungry, and its indigestible fibre delays the absorption of carbohydrates and fats by the blood, which helps your blood sugar levels remain stable.
