Not exactly a substitute for xanthan gum I bought this to use in gluten free baking. Formerly I was using xanthan gum with good results. I read that guar gum could be substituted. It costs less and is not derived from a fermentation process, which were strong considerations in making the switch from xanthan gum to guar gum. Yeast breads baked with guar gum in lieu of xanthan gum did not have the same texture and mouth feel or rise as high (due to less binding quality?). Cookies did not bake as well as those made with the same recipe using xanthan gum. With xanthan gum, I got a gluten free chocolate chip cookie that looked and tasted every bit like its gluten flour counterpart. With guar gum, the gluten free cookies were more dry and crumbly, and the look of them was different. I still like and use the guar gum for muffins but when it's gone, I will probably switch back to xanthan gum as it consistently yields a better product for me. July 22, 2014
Works good with henna This works good to help the henna stick to your hair better than yogurt. October 16, 2013
A recent discovery for salads I make my own salad dressings and often they are a bit thin and more runny than I like. If I use a liquid yogurt vs the Greek thicker one it's a given it's going to be runny and ends up in the bottom of the sald bowl. If I use guar gum to thicken the dressing it sticks to the salad mix and my family likes it. It keeps your dressings, especially if they are fruit based, from becoming a vinegarett dressing. It's great to thicken other things like gravy with out using gluten. I usually use arrow root or rice flour for gravy but they give a different taste and texture. This is a nice change. But mostly I use it to make smooth thicker salad dressings. May 11, 2013
I was using Xanthum gum but It is derived from corn, so thought I would try this instead. It is working pretty well. December 15, 2012
