Additive 412 Guar Gum
Blocked Throat and Intestine
Some over-the-counter products contain dry granules of guar gum. In this form, guar gum absorbs so much water that it can swell up to 20 times larger than its normal size. Then it may get stuck in the esophagus or the small intestine.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires any product containing a dry form of guar gum to put a warning on the label stating that the product may block your throat or esophagus and cause choking.
Guar gum - Dioxins are environmental pollutants
The World Health Organization reported in 2007 that high levels of dioxins were found in guar gum used in food products from India. They were contaminated with a pesticide, that is no longer in use, called pentachlorophenol (PCP) – which contains dioxins.
These dioxins are extremely toxic and can damage a person’s hormone balance, as well as their immune and reproductive systems. They also can cause developmental issues and cancer.
