Guar gum is soluble branched galactomannon fiber meaning it has a mannose sugar backbone and galactose sugar side groups. Guar gum comes from the endosperm of the guar seed and is found in a variety of foods including legumes, oatmeal, barley, ice cream, soups and baked goods. It’s a great thickening agent, but it’s most definitely fermentable. The FP is essentially 100% of the gross weight.
