DescriptionGuar gum, also called guaran, is a galactomannan polysaccharide extracted from guar beans that has thickening and stabilizing properties useful in food, feed, and industrial applications. The guar seeds are mechanically dehusked, hydrated, milled and screened according to application.
In foods and beverages, guar gum is used as a thickening, stabilizing, suspending, and binding agent. In manufacturing, guar gum is used as a binding agent in tablets, and as a thickening agent in lotions and creams.
Guar gum is the ground endosperm of the seeds of a legume. The gum powder contains 75–85% polysaccharide (the actual hydrocolloid), 5–6% protein, 8–14% moisture, and other components.
Since it has no net carbs and is a healthy source of fiber, guar gum makes the perfect keto-friendly thickener.
