Product Overview


  • 100% Pure Powder
  • Natural Thickener
  • A Gluten-Free Food
  • Your Recipe's Secret Ingredient
  • Vegetarian/Vegan Product

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.

Other Ingredients

Pure guar gum.

Use it for my homemade conditioner

Posted by aveissa on Aug 01, 2016 | Verified Purchase

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.

Thanks for your feedback!

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