Guar gum

    Guar gum is derived from the ground endosperm of the guar plant. This ia a hardy and drought- resistant plant which grows 1-2m high with vertical stalks. The seed pods grow in clusters on the vertical stalks. The pods are about 15 cm. long and six to nine seeds about 2-3 mm. in diameter. Roughly, 14-16% of the seeds is the hull, 38-45% represent endosperm, and40-46% germ. 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
