So, what is guar?

Guar is a versatile and nutritious food ingredient that is extracted from the seeds of the guar plant. It is commonly used in the food industry as a thickening agent, stabilizer, and emulsifier, and is known for its ability to enhance the texture and consistency of various food products. Guar is a rich source of dietary fiber and protein, and is low in calories, making it a popular ingredient in health-conscious diets. It is also gluten-free, making it a suitable alternative for people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Additionally, guar is used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries for its thickening and binding properties.
