Default Gar Gum

Does anyone use Gar Gum for thickening? I've not had the best of luck using it for homemade pudding or anything you have to cook but it works fantastic for uncooked salad dressings. 1 teaspoon has 10 calories, 1/2 tsp. will thicken one cup of liquid.
A couple of days ago I modified a recipe for peanut sauce and it worked well in that but then it wasn't cooked either.
If you do use it, please post some recipes that work well for you.

I'd love to know what to do with guar gum. I have a bag of the stuff in the cupboard. I once used it in a smoothie to give it a nice thick texture.

Fancy meeting you here Isabella! I think I'll post this question somewhere else, I'd love to get some more recipes using guar gum.
This is the recipe I modified using PB2 and guar gum. The PB2 makes it really low in calories.

PB2 Sauce
8 servings of 1 oz @ 35 calories
48 grams of PB2
Mix Pb2 with water to make paste
4 T. Soy Sauce
3 servings Ginger (12 grams)
1 t. Splenda
cup Rice Vinegar
2 t. Chili powder
Dash Cayenne
t. Gar gum
Add water to make 8 oz. when completed
Whisk together in covered jar.
