Product Overview


  • Premium Quality
  • Gluten Free
  • All Natural
  • Kosher

All naturally made from the ground seeds of an Indian tree, Guar Gum has eight times the thickening power as cornstarch and is an excellent all-purpose thickener for salad dressings, ice creams, puddings, gravies, sauces, soups and more! It's also a great binder for use in baked goods.

You Can See Our Quality!

Bob's Red Mill products labeled Gluten Free are batch tested in our quality control laboratory. We use an ELISA Gluten Assay test to determine is a product is gluten free.

Suggested Use

Serve this family favorite with butter, honey or jam. The dough is easier to work with mixed in a food processor rather than by hand.

1 cup Bob's Red Mill GF All Purpose Baking Flour

1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Cornstarch

1 Tbsp. Sugar

2 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Baking Powder

1/4 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Baking Soda

1 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Xanthan Gum

1 tsp. Bob's Red Mil Gaur Gum

1/2 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Sea Salt

1/4 cup Shortening*

1/4 cup Milk

1 large Egg White

Cooking Spray

*Non-hydrogenated shortening, by Spectrum and smart Balance, are available at health food stores.

Preheat oven to 350º. In food processor, pulse dry ingredients (flour through salt) to mix thoroughly. Add shortening and pulse a few times again. Add milk and egg white and blend into soft dough. To mix by hand, combine dry ingredients (flour through salt) in large bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture is consistency of small peas. Whisk together milk and egg thoroughly combine. Stir into flour mixture to form a soft dough. Shape dough into ball, scraping side to bowl with spatula. Place dough on surface lightly dusted with GF All Purpose Baking Flour. Gently pat to 3/4-inch thick circle with hands or spatula. Cut into 2-inch circles. Shape remaining dough to 3/4-inch thick and cut again. If dough is sticky, lightly dust with more flour. Arrange evenly on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or coated with cooking spray and lightly dusted. Bake 12-15 minutes or until nicely browned. Best when served warm or gently reheated. Serves 10.

Gluten-Free Thickening

Posted by SherryB on Aug 23, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Wheat flour is often used as the thickening agent in cooking. Since going gluten-free, I have needed something to help thicken sauces, soups and gravies. I even tried it with smoothies. The guar gum thickens recipes and does not have much taste. A little goes a long way. sorry to see it discontinued.

I prefer this over xanthan gum because it is all natural and not so processed. I'm always happy with Bob's Red Mill products. This product is an important part of my gluten free baking habits.

Excellent Results

Posted by Reviewer2888766 on Sep 21, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I add this to smoothies for a creamier texture. A teensy bit goes a long way for super smooth results. heathereatsalmondbutter.com has some ideas on how to use this to make yummy breakfasts and treats.
