English term or phrase:guar gum
Definition from IFIC Foundation: A substance made from the seeds of the guar plant which acts as a stabilizer in food systems. Is found as a food additive in cheese, including processed cheese, ice cream and dressings.
As a result of its high water-binding capacity, guar gum provides extremely high viscosity in water-based systems even at low dosage levels. Guar gum is mainly used as a thickening agent. Danisco A/S
Guar gum is not just a thickening agent, but a binder and plasticizer as well. When untreated ice cream melts and refreezes, grainy ice crystals often form. Guar gum has the natural ability to bind with water molecules, preventing them from forming the unwanted crystals. wiseGEEK
Guar gum (E412, also called guaran) is extracted from the seed of the leguminous shrub Cyamopsis tetragonoloba, where it acts as a food and water store. Martin Chaplin

gumă de guar
Definition from www.jurnalul.ro: Fabricile de lapte şi produse lactate din Romănia nu au utilizat guma de guar in fabricarea iaurturilor (exceptănd Danone),
Danone nu utilizeaza in mod direct guma de guar. Aceasta este ingredient al unor preparate de fructe fabricate in Cehia si utilizate in unele iaurturi cu fructe. In iaurt, guarul se regaseste in cantitati foarte mici (0,02 g intr-un pahar de 125 g). - www.healthy.ro
