Gluten free thickener & binder. An employee-owned company. To your good health - Bob Moore. Gluten free. You can see our quality! Made from the ground seeds of an Indian tree, guar gum has eight times the thickening power as cornstarch and is an excellent all-purpose thickener for salad dressings, ice creams, puddings, gravies, sauces, soups and more! It's also a great binder for use in baked goods. Wholesome. Bob's Red Mill products labeled gluten free are batched tested in our quality control laboratory. We use an ELISA gluten assay test to confirm that a product is gluten free. Dear Friends, Since starting this company over thirty years ago, our mission has always been to offer the most diverse array of stone ground, whole grain products. About ten years ago, we noticed that some folks were exclusively buying gluten free grains like brown rice, sorghum and quinoa. Soon after that, we learned about celiac disease and gluten intolerance and how serious they are to millions of people like you. Over the years we have introduced a variety of measures to ensure purity in our line of gluten free products that have become industry standard. We inspect all farm deliveries, use dedicated gluten free production facilities and employ batch testing in our quality control laboratory. Knowing that we're providing safe and delicious gluten free foods that you and your family can trust makes it all worth the effort. To your good health, Bob Moore.
