Derived from the little-known guar bean, Guar Gum is a natural thickening agent used extensively in the commercial food industry. At the consumer level it's most commonly used when baking with whole grain flours that typically don't rise due to their lack of gluten.
NOW Real Food Guar Gum improves the thickness of whole grain and gluten-free flours, allowing them to rise and take on the light, fluffy consistency of more common baked goods. It's also an excellent addition to sauces and salad dressings.
Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We're independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.
Pure guar gum.

iHerb Customer Reviews
No complaints! Used it in allergen-free (gluten-free) recipes with great results. My daughter is allergic to corn so we used this instead of xanthan gum (which is a derivative of corn).
It does its job but it tastes quite awful if you use it a lot. I only use it in protein smoothie which has quite blend taste. I heard that if you use xanthan gum and guar gum together the thickening effect is greater so that was what I did at the first time. But it had funny after taste so after some experiment I found out that guar gum was the reason. Since then I've been using just xanthan gum. I am not sure how it is going to taste like in baked goods but if you are planning to use it in smoothie I recommend xanthan gum instead.

Not much to say here, this is just good pure guar gum. I use it as a thickener and it serves the purpose well.
