So, what is guar gumi?

Guar gum, also known as guar gumi, is a versatile and popular food ingredient extracted from the seeds of the guar plant. It is a natural thickener and stabilizer commonly used in a wide range of foods, including baked goods, dairy products, sauces, and beverages. With its unique ability to increase viscosity and improve texture, guar gum is often used as a substitute for other thickeners like cornstarch or xanthan gum. In addition to its functional properties, guar gum is also a good source of dietary fiber and may offer health benefits such as improving digestive health and reducing cholesterol levels.
