Don't know about the partially hydrogenated part, because this is the first time I hear of this in combination with guar gum...

Guar gum itself contains a lot of fiber, so it's considered healthy. Some claim it lowers cholesterol and it could help fight diabetes. In some it can cause indigestion, because it promotes bowel movement.

It is widely used as filler in gluten free breads and pastries, so the product is less dry and crumbles less.



Anything specific you are concerned about regarding guar gum?

I'm not exactly well-read on guar gum, but I seem to recall some concern that it blocks the body's absorption of certain minerals/nutrients. 

Anyone interested in this topic may wish to investigate Konjac or Glucomannan, as it it also called. You can buy the raw form of the root, or a more processed version in supplement form.

I understand. It's good to know what you're eating.

hydrogenated = trans fats... might say 0g on the label but this is due to a trick... in the US and canada companies can have 0.49g/serving of trans fats and round down to 0

boom
