Guar Gum is a whitish to yellowish white powder with a slight odor. The gum is modified to give different variations like odorless and colorless guar for food applications. Guar Gum is used as a thickener and stabilizer in many aqueous systems in food applications like gravies, sauces, soups, soup mixes, toppings, syrups etc, cheese/dairy/frozen dessert stabilizers and industrial applications like oil drilling muds, textile printing and warp sizing, paper coating, carpet printing and mining flotation. Guar gum is applied for various food and other industrial uses as a viscosifier, thickener, binder, gelling agent, stabilizer, emulsifier, flocculant, water holding agent etc…
About the Guar Gum:
Guar is an annual summer legume grown in India & Pakistan. It is often used as forage for cattle and as a vegetable consumption. It is mostly grown in arid, unirrigated areas as the crop depends on only one or two rainfalls and does not require much fertilizer to grow. The Guar Seed consists of three parts: the gram, the endosperm, and the husk. It is from the endosperm that Guar Gum is derived.
Guar Gum is cold water soluble polysaccharide, and it has broad uses in food and industrial industries. These uses depend upon the properties provided by very large molecules in various state of hydration, mostly in solution. Guar Gum hydrates very easily to produce aqueous solutions possessing a high viscosity at low Gum concentrations.
These solutions are good emulsifiers and stabilizers because they prevent oil droplets form coalescing. They may also have the property of interfacial binding and thereby act as true emulsifiers. Guar Gum is also used as a suspension stabilizer as it allows only slow setting because of its thickening power.
- Guar Gum is white to yellowish white powder. It is nearly odorless. Fine finished Guar Gum powder is available in different viscosity’s and different granulometries depending on the desired viscosity development and application.
- Guar Gum is natural high molecular weight hydrocollodial polysaccharide composed of Gallatin and mannan units combined through glycoside linkages, which may be described chemically as galatomannan.
- Dissolved in cold or hot water, Guar Gum forms a slime of high viscosity. Guar’s viscosity is a function of temperature, time and concentration.
