Introduction of Guar Gum

Guar gum, also called guaran, is a galactomannan polysaccharide, Guar Gum Biological source is Guar Seeds, It’s a Leguminous Plant, 100% NON GMO, India origin only. the Botanical name of Guar bean is Cymopsys Tetragonoloba. Guar Gum Extraction Is done from thermo mechanical processing of guar beans or Guar seeds. Guar Gum is a Vegan Gluten Free Product.

Production and Trade

Guar Farming : The guar bean is principally grown in India. India produces about 3 million tons of guar annually, India is the largest producer, with about 85% of Guar gum world production. In India, Guar Gum Cultivation is best in Rajasthan, Gujarat and Haryana are the main producing regions. The world production for guar gum and its derivatives is about 1.0 Million tonnes. Non-food guar gum accounts for about 40% of the total demand. Indian Hydrocolloids operates Guar Gum Cultivation in Rajasthan and Gujarat. Guar Gum Trade in Gujarat & Rajasthan is traditional and family oriented Business. Guar Gum Trading mandies are there for direct purchasing from farmers.

Product Highlights


Guar Gum Chemical Formula

Guar gum Chemical composition is an exo-polysaccharide composed of the sugars, galactose and mannose. The backbone is a linear chain of β 1,4-linked mannose residues to which galactose residues are 1,6-linked at every second mannose, forming short side-branches. Guar gum Chemical Structure has the ability to withstand temperatures of 80 °C (176 °F) for five minutes. Guar Gum Molecular Weight is in very long range. Guar Gum Nutritional Value is awesome.

Guar Gum Solubility and viscosity

In water, Guar gum is nonionic and hydrocolloidal. It is not affected by ionic strength or pH, but will degrade at extreme pH and temperature (e.g. pH 3 at 50 °C). It remains stable in solution over pH range 5-7. Strong acids cause hydrolysis and loss of viscosity and alkalies in strong concentration also tend to reduce viscosity. It is insoluble in most hydrocarbon solvents.

Guar gum is more soluble than locust bean gum due to its extra galactose branch points. Unlike locust bean gum, it is not self-gelling. Either borax or calcium can cross-link guar gum, causing it to gel.

Guar Gum Vs Xanthan gum : Guar Gum is used as an Alternative or replacement gum for Xanthan gum, Konjac gum, Carob bean gum.

Guar Gum Viscosity

The viscosity attained is dependent on time, temperature, concentration, pH, rate of agitation and particle size of the powdered gum used. The lower the temperature, the lower the rate at which viscosity increases, and the lower the final viscosity. Above 80°, the final viscosity is slightly reduced. Finer guar powders swell more rapidly than larger particle size coarse powdered gum.

Guar gum shows a clear low shear plateau on the flow curve and is strongly shear-thinning. The rheology of guar gum is typical for a random coil polymer. It does not show the very high low shear plateau viscosities seen with more rigid polymer chains such as xanthan gum. It is very thixotropic above 1% concentration, but below 0.3%, the thixotropy is slight. Guar gum shows viscosity synergy with xanthan gum.


Guar Gum Benefits are enormous, guar gum is used in Various food industries as Viscofier, Thickener, soothing agent, better mouth feel, Prevents Sineresis, Prevents Crystallization of Ice, guar gum as a thickening agent in foods and medicines for humans and animals. Because it is gluten-free, it is used as an additive to replace wheat flour in baked goods.

Guar gum is economical as well. Because it has almost eight times the water-thickening ability of other agents (e.g.cornstarch), only a small quantity is needed for producing sufficient viscosity, Because less is required, costs are reduced.

Guar gum retards ice crystal growth by slowing mass transfer across the solid/liquid interface. It shows good stability during freeze-thaw cycles. Thus, it is used in egg-free ice cream. Guar gum has synergistic effects with locust bean gum and sodium alginate. May be synergistic with xanthan: together with xanthan gum, it produces a thicker product (0.5% guar gum / 0.35% xanthan gum), which is used in applications such as soups, which do not require clear results.

Guar gum is a hydrocolloid, hence used for making thick pastes, and for keeping water bound in a sauce or emulsion. Guar gum is used for thickening cold and hot liquids, to make hot gels, light foams and as an emulsion stabilizer. Guar gum is used for cottage cheeses, curds, yoghurt, sauces, soups and frozen desserts. Guar gum is also a good source of fiber with 80% soluble dietary fiber on a dry weight basis.

Guar Gum Emulsifier, Guar Gum Gel , Guar Gum Jelly, Guar Gum Hydrogel, Guar Gum Fiber are various forms of Food grade Applications.

Guar gum health Benefits

It is very beneficial to health. It reduce serum cholesterol and lower blood glucose levels, It helps to loose weight when ingested, its water-absorbing properties cause it to swell in the stomach causing a 'full' sensation sooner. Guar Gum used in Ayurveda since ancient times. Guar Gum is native India Origin.


Guar gum has high ability to flow, or deform, gives it favorable rheological properties. It forms breakable gels when cross-linked with boron. It is used in various multi-phase formulations for hydraulic fracturing, in some as an emulsifier because it helps prevent oil droplets from coalescing, and in others as a stabilizer to help prevent solid particles from settling and separating.

Fracking entails the pumping of sand-laden fluids into an oil or natural gas reservoir at high pressure and flow rate. This cracks the reservoir rock and then props the cracks open. Water alone is too thin to be effective at carrying proppant sand, so guar gum is one of the ingredients added to thicken the slurry mixture and improve its ability to carry proppant.

Manufacturing process

The commercial production of guar gum normally uses roasting, differential attrition, sieving, and polishing.

Food-grade guar gum is manufactured in stages. Guar split is screened to clean it, soaked to pre-hydrate it, The soaked splits are passed through a flaker. The flaked guar split is ground and then dried. The powder is screened through rotary screens to deliver the required particle size. The quality of the food-grade guar gum powder is defined from its particle size, rate of hydration, and microbial content.

Guar Gum Refined Splits are used for High quality food grade and Pharmaceutical Guar gum production and for Guar Gum Powder partially Hydrolysed grade.

Coarse-mesh guar gums will typically, but not always, develop viscosity more slowly. They may achieve a reasonably high viscosity, but will take longer to achieve. On the other hand, they will disperse better than fine-mesh, all conditions being equal.

A finer mesh, such as a 200 mesh, requires more effort to dissolve.

Modified forms of guar gum are available commercially, including enzyme-modified, cationic and CarboxyMethyl guar, Guar Gum Derivatives are Chemically modified with Alkali, Acids & Quaternary compounds.
