Manage Rising Guar Gum Prices With Products From AFS!

Advanced Food Systems offers unique ingredient systems that can reduce the amount of (or even replace!) guar gum while improving overall product quality. As guar gum prices continue to escalate, long lead times and tight profit margins are sending food scientists in search of less expensive and more readily available alternatives. Our products not only help offset rising guar gum costs, but also offer the additional functional benefits of balancing flavor and texture across a wide range of applications.

  Sauces, Dressings and Soups

Actoloid® 200 and Actoloid® 303   from AFS are economical alternatives to guar gum in sauces, dressings and soups. At lower usage levels than guar gum, they produce high viscosity in cold water with improved flow characteristics. They also improve emulsion stability, freeze-thaw stability and particulate suspension in the final product.


Guar gum has long been used as an inexpensive sealant for filled, dough based products such as egg rolls, tortillas, calzones and ravioli. Sealtite® 1230 and Sealtite® FB-17 are edible adhesives that are cost-effective alternatives to guar gum. They are cold water soluble and designed so that the agitation of products moving along the conveyor line helps to create a thicker, stickier seal than guar gum alone. This helps keep the filling in and the water or oil out by eliminating skin unwrapping during deep frying, conveying and baking. The final result of using Sealtite® systems is less damages and higher finished product yields.

For 30 years AFS has been providing customized solutions that enhance the quality of your products and provide cost savings.
