So, what is guargummi?

Guar gum is a natural food ingredient extracted from the seeds of the guar plant. It is commonly used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in various food products, such as sauces, dressings, ice creams, and baked goods. Guar gum is highly soluble in water, forming a viscous gel-like substance that can improve the texture and mouthfeel of foods. It is also known for its ability to prevent ice crystals from forming in frozen desserts, thereby enhancing their shelf life. Additionally, guar gum has some potential health benefits, including improving digestion and reducing cholesterol levels.
