Guar gum is an emulsifier, thickener, and stabilizer approved for use in a wide range of foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. One advantageous property of guar gum is that it thickens without the application of heat. It is also very useful in textile industry, paper industry, explosives industry, oil and gas drilling, mining, construction, pharmaceutical, cosmetic industries and many other industries.
Guar gum is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) with differing percentages set for its allowable concentration in various food applications. After administration of guar gum in humans, several studies have found significant decreases in cholesterol levels. These decreases are thought to be a function of the high soluble fiber content of guar.
Guar gum has historically been considered acceptable as a food, cosmetic, and supplement additive at Whole Foods Market when used according to FDA regulations and in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices.
