Guar gum and xanthum gum equivalents (for use in ice cream)

I have found that 1/2 teaspoon of guar gum works well to inhibit ice crystal formation and give a texture that I like in a quart of ice cream. What is the equivalent amount of xanthum gum to use and should I expect roughly the same effect?

Thanks
