What in the world is Guar Gum? Hidden Stabilizers & What You Should Know About Them

Have you ever flipped over a snack bag and seen ingredients like pectin, lecithin, carrageenan, locust bean gum, guar gum, etc and wondered what in the world is in your food these days? 

You’re not alone. 

In today’s society, new food and snack products are hitting grocery store aisles daily. As the demand for healthy snacks continues to grow, we see more and more products on grocery store shelves with all kinds of funky ingredients. Salad dressings, frozen desserts, snack foods, cereal products, pudding mixes, jams, jellies, the list goes on… 

These strange “ingredients” you can hardly pronounce that you see on the back of your snacks are chemicals that are added to your food products to preserve structure, texture, and consistency. 

As nice as a perfectly even and consistent product may be, the negative impact these additives can have on our health is simply not worth it. These stabilizers wreak havoc on our digestive systems and gut health - which research has shown is where 80% of our immune system is located. 

What ever happened to real food ingredients? Just food for food, in it’s most authentic form. 

Here at FaroMia, we steer 100% clear of all stabilizers and additives. Our products only use ingredients that you can not only pronounce, but can also find at home in your own kitchen. Because we choose to only use natural, whole food ingredients, our product textures may vary batch by batch, flavor by flavor. Each FaroMia dip will need a good, thorough stir upon first opening to fully mix and re-incorporate the healthy oils and spices that make our products so unique. 

The good stuff sinks to the bottom. So please, go dig for gold!
