One use of guar gum powder is as a thickening agent in foods and medicines for humans and animals. Because it is gluten-free, it's also used as an additive to replace wheat flour in baked goods. It has also been shown to be beneficial to health. It has been shown to reduce serum cholesterol and lower blood glucose levels.
