iHerb Customer Reviews
 

Good for baking

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 21, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Good product for baking low-energy foods. It gives much better consistency than xanthan gum. Yet in high amounts it makes foods too gummy.

Thanks for your feedback!

great for fruit sorbet

Posted by iHerb Customer on Mar 31, 2012 | Verified Purchase

exellent product for frozen fruit sorbet: guar gum inhibits the formation of ice crystals once the desert is frozen.

Thanks for your feedback!

Unique thickener and emulsifier

Use a *tiny* amount for big results in many products! Works in baked goods, ice cream, salad dressings, and barbecue sauces.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great in smoothies!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 25, 2011 | Verified Purchase

I bought this for using in smoothies, "protein ice cream" (google that and you'll find recipes!) and other icy things. This makes it very smooth and creamy. A word of caution, though: too much might upset your stomach if you're sensitive like I am. My only other complaint is that I wish it had come in a resealable package of some sort. Not too big of a deal and it wouldn't deter me from getting this product again, but I do hope for something to be done about it!
