View Full Version : Guar Gum as a thickener in ice cream??
06-07-2006, 02:54 PM
What do you think of using guar gum in making ice cream thicker? I tried Irish Moss but itÂ’s such a pain to make the gel. I know Irish Moss has nutritional benefits and I donÂ’t think guar gum does. But is it neutral like I think something like carob powder is? I canÂ’t find any great list on carob powderÂ’s benefits such as I can for cacao, so I figure carob is kinda neutral, right? So is guar gum neutral? Is it okay to use? Should I try it? :confused:

I don't think it is raw, and why do you need to thicken your ice cream?
what are you using to make ice cream with?
I just use walnuts water and dates, mmmmmm some seasonings. like cocoa or vanilla or cinnamon or dates, or apricots, or pineapple etc. freezes perfectly, and is nice and thick and creamy.

also carob is not neutral, most of it is roasted, unless it says raw on it.
