Guar Gum Split
Guar Gum Split is refined endosperm derived from
guar seed or cluster bean (cyamoperm tetragonoloba). It is a non-ionic
polysaccharide galacomannan. Guar Gum Refined Split (Endosperm) is
mechanically separated from guar seed which yields 28-30% of Refined Split.
Guar beans are harvested and dried following the growing season. The beans
are shelled from the pods, the germ and hull removed. The resulting splits
are wet-milled into powder; the powder is graded by granulation and quality.
Products are re-blended according to specification, bagged and marked. Guar
Gum Split with its versatile inherent properties is used all over the globe
with different utilities in many industries like Petroleum (Oil drilling),
textile, printing, food pharma, cosmetic, toiletries paper, tanneries,
mining, explosives, pet food etc. These industries use Guar Gum in powder
form either directly plain Guar Gum Powder or in derived form.

Guar Gum is a white to yellowish white powder. It is
nearly odorless. Fine finished Guar Gum Powder is available in different
viscosities and different granulometries depending on the desired viscosity
development and application.
Guar Gum is a natural high molecular weight hydrocolloidal polysaccharide
composed of galactan and mannan units combined through glycosidic linkages,
which may be described chemically as galactomannan.
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.
Guar Gum Split is mainly used as a
- Food Bakery : One of the major applications for guar gum
powder is the production of bread. Even small quantities of guar gum
powder added to the dough increase the yield, give greater resiliency,
improve texture and give longer shelf life.
- Dairy : In this field guar gum is used as an excellent binder
of water and a stabilizer. It is used in the production of ice-creams,
sherbets, cheese, liquid milk products, and others.
- Meat : Meat products. It allows storing with less loss of
weight and can decrease the filling time for cans.
- Dressing and Sauces : Guar can be used as an excellent
thickener to impove the stability and appearance of salad dressings,
barbecue sauces, relishes, ketchups and others. It is quite compatible
with highly acidic emulsions.
- Beverages : Guar can be used as stabilizer for chocolate
drinks, fruit nectars, and juices.
- Miscellaneous Food Applications : Dry soups, sweet dessert,
canned fish in sauce, frozen food items and others.
- Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics : Guar Gum can be used as a
thickener for various cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. In compressed
tablets Guar Gum can be used as a binder and distintegrator.
