    What is a substitute for guar gum or xanthan gum?
    Thank you

    That's a tough one, because these provide structure in breads and other baked goods that is missing because of using gluten-free flours. If you are not gluten-free, then try looking for another recipe that uses regular flour.

    If you are or need to cook gluten free and cannot get these, you may want to post over in the GF forum for suggestions. There are some things that work well without either gum. I've made these, Brazilian Cheese Puffs - Pao De Queijo (Gluten Free), Flaxseed Wraps , Rice Flour Brownies and there are a number of other recipes that are gluten free but do not call for either type of gum.

    From The Cook's Thesaurus:

    xanthan = xanthan gum Pronunciation: ZAN-thun
    Notes: Derived from corn sugar, xanthan gum is used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier.
    Substitutes: guar gum OR pre-gel starch
