ISO help/tips/advice using guar gum

Does anyone know how to use guar gum as a thickener for soups and/or salad dressings? How do you add it? In cold or hot water?

Welcome to DC! I have wondered the same thing. This blog might help:

Guar Gum vs. Xanthan Gum - Bob's Red Mill Blog

Notice where it indicates that guar gum is added to the oil component. Some of the gluten-free folks will probably be able to give you more advice.
