Barry Farms is known for their quality and rare, hard-to-find ingredients. Guar Gum is no exception, but anything can be found on Amazon, right? Barry Farms to the rescue!

The thickening effect of Guar Gum is similar to gelatin, but the end result is more of a syrup than a jello. Guar Gum has a thickening power nearly 8 times greater than that of corn starch.

Many ice creams and popsicles, even Italian ices, call for two main ingredients: Guar Gum (which, being the dietary fiber that it is, has been known to help lower cholesterol) and sometimes Xanthan Gum (also available from Barry Farms: [...]). Both of these gums behave quite differently, and Xanthan Gum can be harder to mix into your liquid solution, but both are effective means to preventing crystallization of liquids, which is how you get softer ice cream and popsicles instead of rock hard ice!

Guar Gum can also be used in baked goods to increase dough yield and improves texture and shelf life, in pastry fillings to keep the pastry crust crisp and flaky, in dairy to thicken milk, yogurt, kefir, and liquid cheese products and to maintain homogeneity and texture of ice creams and sherbets, in meat as lubricant and binder, to improve the stability and appearance of salad dressings, barbecue sauces, relishes, ketchups and others dressings/sauces, and even in dry soups, and instant oatmeal mixes.

Product arrived quickly and was priced much lower than I have ever paid for it in Minesota or Illinois. Packaging was excellent. I will do business with this company again.

Just delighted with this product! I make popsicles all the time, usually using just fruit juice, or a combo of fruit + juice. Without guar gum the popsicles are still tasty, but the ice crystals are annoying. WITH just a tiny bit of this product -- wow, what a difference!! The bars have no ice crystals at all, and have a creamier consistency. I poured about 3 cups of juice into my blender, and added a scant teaspoon of guar gum, processed it on low for a few seconds; poured it into popsicle molds and my boy friend was ecstatic with the results! Can't wait to add a bit to our homemade ice creams too!

i bought the guar gum along with xanthum gum. they are a godsend to those who cannot tolerate gluten yet cannot give up bread for breakfast. Bread from any type of flour other than wheat (rice, bean, soy, potato, sweet potato, corn, amaranth, quinoa...)refuses to rise during baking. a spoonful of each added to other flours allows for bread loaves rather than flat cookies like creations.

This little package will last you a very, very long time. It thickens sauces and liquids instead of adding corn starch and a tiny bit goes a long way. The package appears small, but since you only need a very tiny bit, it will last a long time. Very happy with the packaging and the performance of this item. It is low in carbs and works with all low-carb diets.

I am very pleased with the product, the service and the price. The Guar Gum is great to use to thicken smoothies and low in calories.

I bought this for use in my homemade ice cream and all I can say is - Wow! This stuff delivers and makes my ice cream as good (better) than any premium store bought ice cream. Just be advised that a little goes a really long way. My recipie calls for 1 egg, 2 egg yolks, 2 cups cream, 1 cup milk along with some other ingredients and steps. I added slightly less than 1/8 teaspoon of Guar Gum to my mix as I was tempering the egg mixture.

It worked really well - so well that I will likely use a bit less next time depending on what variety I make. At this rate, this bag will last me several lifetimes!!!
