Guar gum: multifunctional additive


Guar gum is an extract of the guar plant. It is called a natural polysaccharide, because it is a water-soluble dietary fibre. So it is a carbohydrate. Because of its binding properties, it is widely used in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries. This additive can be used as a thickener, emulsifier, stabiliser and binder. The substance is also capable of extending the shelf life of foodstuffs. The binder is most often used in ice cream, to improve its structure. In the European Union, it is authorised as a food additive and has been assigned the number E412.


How to use guar gum?


Guar gum powder is odourless and dissolves in cold water. It then forms a very thick gel and is up to eight times stronger than starch. Not surprisingly, it is often used in dressings and sauces. It can be used in both hot and cold preparations. If you want to use this thickener while flour or starch are mentioned in a recipe, this is fine. However, you only add one eighth of the amount required in the original recipe. With guar gum you have to be very careful. Even a small difference in quantity can lead to a larger change in consistency. You can also use guar gum when working with gluten-free flour. The additive then provides some lightness.



Guar gum can be easily and quickly ordered online


Guar gum is, as mentioned above, an additive approved by the European Union. Although it is a safe product, there are limits to its use. These can be found on the website of the European Commission, in the so-called Food Additives Database. At Natural Spices you can buy guar gum online in packages of 600 grams, 1.5 kilos or 25 kilos. After purchase you need to keep it dark, cool and dry to ensure its quality.
