Food Grade Gum

Food grade guar gum is an emulsifier, thickener, and stabilizer approved for use in a wide range of foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. It is an odorless powder, which is available in different properties and granulometries depending on the desired viscosity.

Guar gum has significantly more thickening ability than cornstarch, at a fraction of the cost. . This has made guar gum a popular additive in products such as puddings and ice creams.
