  • Hi Modernist Pantry: I’ve purchased your perfected guar gum, and the Ultra-Sperse 3 and M products. I’m a bit confused about what applications are particularly good for guar vs. the starches, as it seems both are used in your articles and videos for thickening both desserts and savory fluids like soups and sauces. Any advice on when to favor guar vs. the starches (and vice versa)? Thanks! —Tom
