Guar Gum Industrial Grade

Gum is derived from guar seeds or cyamopsis tetragonoloba termed as Guar Gum.

Guar Gum can also be termed as guaran. These seeds have high low-shear viscosity as evaluated with other hydrocolloids like (locust bean gum). Guar Gums are effective thickeners and stabilizers.

Guar Gum is relatively cost effective as compared to other thickeners and stabilizers along with it being an effective binder, plasticizer and emulsifier.
