So, what is gomme-guar?

Gomme-guar, also known as guar gum, is a plant-based food ingredient that is commonly used as a thickener and stabilizer in the food industry. It is derived from the seeds of the guar plant, which is native to India and Pakistan. Gomme-guar is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder that has the ability to absorb water and form a gel-like substance. It is often used in products such as ice cream, yogurt, and baked goods to improve texture, increase shelf life, and prevent crystallization. Gomme-guar is also a popular ingredient in gluten-free baking, as it helps to bind ingredients together and create a more cohesive structure.
