So, what is guargumi?

Guar gum, also known as guargumi, is a natural food thickener and stabilizer derived from the endosperm of guar beans. It is widely used in the food industry to improve texture, viscosity, and shelf life of various products like ice cream, sauces, and baked goods. In addition, guar gum is a popular ingredient in gluten-free recipes as it mimics the binding properties of gluten. Furthermore, this plant-based additive has several health benefits, including reducing blood sugar levels and improving digestive health. Despite being generally safe, excessive consumption of guar gum may cause gastrointestinal discomfort.
