What Is The Difference Between Guar Gum And Xantham Gum?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I made cheesecake brownies a couple of days ago and it called for 3 t. of guar gum. What is the difference? I went ahead and used xantham gum but I really wasn't sure if I should have done that. Can you use one for the other? (They turned out at least! :) )

I find xanthan gives a more bread-like texture, while guar gum gives a more cake-like texture. Either can work in most recipes, except that you may prefer one over the other. Sometimes, other adjustments may be necessary to optimize the results when substituting one for the other.
