Gluten Free Guar Gum
Our certified gluten-free guar gum is used as a thickener in soups, sauces, and dairy products, and as a binder in foods like meat and ice cream. It has an even greater thickening ability than cornstarch, and is rich in water-soluble fiber.
How is guar gum produced?
Guar gum comes from the seeds of the guar plant, an Indian tree. The seeds are harvested, dried, and then screen-processed into a fine powder.
What is guar gum used for?
Guar gum holds together many of the foods we enjoy! Guar gum is an important component of ice cream because it acts as a binder and prevents ice crystals from forming. It is also commonly used in gluten-free baking to improve the texture and thickness of baked goods. In meat and sausages, guar gum improves water retention. It also enhances the volume and thickness of sauces, salad dressings, and soups.Banana "Ice Cream" Recipe
Ingredients: 4 cups Very Cold Water, 1 cup Pecan Halves, 2 large Ripe Bananas, 1/2 cup Honey, 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, 3/4 tsp Guar Gum.

Blend until mixture is very smooth. Pour approximately half of the mixture into a 2 quart ice cream maker. Blend 1 cup cold water with mixture left in blender container.

“When I was first shopping online for gluten-free products I clicked on a site that had an explanation as to why I had to wait four weeks to receive my order. I kept looking. Then I found Nuts Online. I ordered one evening and received my order two business days later. That's SERVICE!
I also appreciate the heavy resealable bags in which your products are packaged. They are heavy enough for long-term storage and they stand up on the refrigerator shelf. There is no need to repackage everything at home in storage containers as I do with the flimsy plastic bags most health food stores provide.
Fresh products, great packaging and fast, friendly service: I'll be back.
