Corn starch has 7 grams carbs/tablespoon. I've personally not used it since I got diabetes, and have just thickened by reduction or cream.

As for substituting corn starch for the gum - I searched for those more in the know than I and came up with 'no' via that same question here - Xanthan Gum And Corn Starch - Celiac Disease & Gluten-Free Diet Forum

I don't think it would hurt the recipe to much to just leave out the guar/xantham gum. Sorry for the wrong turn with the corn starch. I am not a baker, my husband cooked this up for me.
