Guar gum powder (also sometimes called guaran) is a common, water soluble food additive that is extracted from guar beans (the seeds of the guar plant, Cyamopsis tetragonoloba ). It is commonly used as a thickening agent in yogurts, ice cream, supplements, lotions, and creams. Guar gum powder has eight times the thickening potency as cornstarch and is high in fiber.
Guar gum powder is rich in fiber and helps aid digestion. Due to its high fiber content, it may have laxative properties. Guar gum powder also helps contribute to heart health.
