Guar Gum Powder

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. One of the important properties of guar gum, a polysaccharide, is that it is high on galactose and mannose. Guar gum is also known as guarkernmehl, guaran, goma guar, gomme guar and galactomannan.

Benefits of Guar Gum
  • Lowering blood Glucose
  • Lowering insulin levels

Properties of Guar Gum
  • Guar gum has reasonably more thickening property as compared to corn starch.
  • Holds back the growth of ice crystal
  • Guar is draught resistant plant
  • Guar gum forms gel in water
Endosperm of guar seeds are used in many sectors of industries like mining, petroleum, drilling and textile., food products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, water treatment, mining, drilling, explosives, confectioneries and many more. Since a long time Guar Gum can be also named as a hydrocolloid, is treated as the key product for humans and animals as it has a very high nourishing property.
Guar Gum – a Natural Thickening Agent
Among various natural agro products, guar gum occupies a very important place, as it is a rich source of high quality galactomannan polysaccharide. Guar Gum is extracted from guar seeds grown in a plant about 4 feet high known as guar plant. This guar plant is grown in India and Pakistan sown in July and harvested in October. The seeds from this plant are allowed to dry in sun. After drying the seeds in the sun, they are separated and processed into a flour which is known as guar gum powder.

The guar gum splits are also sold as they have many uses in various industries. The processing technique of guar gum depends on the requirement of the end product. The guar gum powder has more thickening ability than cornstarch. It not only works as a thickener but also works as binder and plasticizer as well. Guar gum is easily soluble in water and has a natural ability to bind with water molecules. Without a binder like guar gum, different ingredients in might separate into watery mess as far as creamy processed foods are concerned.

Uses and Benefits of Guar Gum
Besides industrial extraction of guar gum from the plant, it is also used as the green vegetable and cattle feed. Guar gums such as hydrolysed, hydroxyalkyl, carboxyalkyl, oxidised, sulphated, borated, cationic and various combinations of these are commercially useful for a number of industrial applications. Guar Gum has many health benefits too. Taking guar gum with the meals can help in lowering blood sugar for diabetes patients. It also helps in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The thickening properties of guar gum have made it a popular additive in products like puddings and ice creams.

Guar gum creates a sense of fullness in the stomach and so it is also used in diet pills. Guar gum has many advantageous properties due to which it has become most used thickening agent in the industries like paper and pulp industry, cosmetics industry, textiles, personal care, health care, pharmaceuticals, food, animal feed etc. The Guar Gum seeds is very useful in petroleum and drilling industry due to which the seeds are highly demanded in the petroleum industry of USA and the oil fields in the Middle East. Guar gum powder has many versatile uses in Industrial applications.

Especially for industrial applications, guar gum is processed in such a way that fast hydration and cold water viscosity is obtained. Fast hydration guar gum powder is extensively used for oil drilling, explosives and other industrial applications where quick hydration and immediate high terminal viscosity is needed. Fast hydration guar gum powder for oil drilling applications is the most important use of guar gum as oil and gas, are the two most important pillars of modern industry and our way of life.
Guar Gum Chemical Stucture
Guar Gum mainly consists of hydrocolloidal polysaccharide with a high molecular weight, which consists of galactopyranose- and mannopyranose- units in glycoside linkage which can be chemically described as galactomannan. The main chain consists of (1-4) linked beta-D mannose residues and the side chain of (1-6) linked alpha-D galactose.

Guar gum has an overall ratio of mannose to galactose of around 2 : 1. Guar Gum has excellent cold water solubility because of the high galactose: mannose ratio.

The molecular weight of Guar has reported as 1-2 x 10 6. Further studies indicate that Guar Gum is a rigid rod like polymer because of the beta linkage between the monomer units. Guar hydroxylsare in the CIS position. The CIS position is important since adjacent hydroxyl groups reinforce each other in hydrogen bonding reactions.

Guar Gum is mainly used as a
  • Natural thickener
  • Emulsifier
  • Stabiliser
  • Bonding agent
  • Hydrocolloid
  • Gelling agent
  • Soil Stabiliser
  • Natural fiber
Applications - Cassia Tora Powder
