Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

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.

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).
thank you iherb faster than expected

Use it for my homemade conditioner
Posted by aveissa on Aug 01, 2016
I use this as a thickener for my homemade conditioner, very little of it made a big bottle of conditioner that feels gel-like and great for spreading the oils in the conditioner. I have yet to use it in food.
great product by Now
