What is the difference between guar gum and guar fiber?
September 25, 2020
Guar gum is a water soluble carbohydrate derived from the guar plant seed. It is used throughout the food industry for its superior thickening, gelling, emulsifying, and stabilizing properties as a result of its high viscosity. While guar gum and guar fiber come from the same plant, guar fiber (Sunfiber®) has a low viscosity and is used to add fiber to various foods and dietary supplements.
