I use it to thicken up homemade ice cream, yogurt, and gravy's. Start with a very little amount like 1/8 teaspoon and whisk vigorously with a couple of tablespoons of liquid until well blended. Do not add large amount of this product to liquid food at once because it will clump up and mixing will be very tough. This product starts to thicken more with a bit of time as well. The true key to using this product correctly is to increase by 1/8 teaspoon with small amount of liquid (whisking vigorously each time until well blended) until you reach your desired consistency. Some "elbow grease" is required if you want your product thickened correctly and Guar gum is an excellent thickener with 8x the strength of flour!
If you pour too much you will get clumps and/or a taffy stretchy like consistency in your final product, so go slowly and whisk like you mean it! ;)
I do observe that NOW guar makes doughs more runny, but thus far, that's fine, as the final products turns out great. I might even say perfect. It's about time. I'll never buy another brand of guar gum again.
