So, what is goma de guar?

Goma de guar, also known as guar gum, is a natural food ingredient derived from the seeds of the guar plant. It has gained popularity in the food industry as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier due to its ability to absorb water and form a gel-like consistency. In addition to its functional properties, goma de guar is also a source of dietary fiber and may provide potential health benefits such as improving digestion and reducing cholesterol levels. It is commonly used in a variety of food products such as baked goods, dairy products, and sauces, and is considered a safe and versatile ingredient for food applications.
