Guar Gum Compared to Xanthan Gum
Ever tried a baked good that used only xanthan gum? We have, and the result was completely different than that of guar gum. When it comes to choosing the right gum to use, it depends on your taste preferences. While xanthan gum is known to produce a treat with additional moisture, guar gum will likely create baked goods that dry out quicker. Because each of these gums functions in a different way, they inevitably produce different results.

One of the most significant differences between xanthan gum and guar gum is where they originate from. While guar gum is derived from a seed native to Asia, xanthan gum is produced by a microorganism called Xanthomonas Campestris. Along with their differences in nature, they also have several differences in the kitchen. While both can be used when creating gluten free foods, guar gum works better when added to recipes like smoothies, ice cream and pie fillings. Xanthan gum, on the other hand, can be used to produce delicious baked goods and yeast bread.
