Guar Gum Powder

Guar Gum Powder Manufacturer in Gujarat

Guar gum powder is extracted from seeds of the Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba. Chemically, it is a polysaccharide made of sugars, galactose, and mannose. The polysaccharide galactomannan present in the endosperm of the guar plant is a hydroxyl polymer. When it gets in touch with water it forms hydrogen bonds and it provides the required viscosity and thickening. It is nearly odorless and tasteless; it is white to yellowish-white powder. Guar gum powder has excellent viscosity and stability in cold water because it has high galactose: mannose proportion. The ratio of mannose to galactose in the guar gum has been evaluated at 2:1. The special properties of guar gum powder produced in Gujarat have made it the most preferred and suitable product in various industrial applications.

Some of the exceptional chemical properties of guar gum powder that make it unique are as follows:

  • Guar gum powder is one of the finest thickening additives, emulsifying additives, and stabilizing additives.
  • The chemical structure of guar gum comprises of two D-mannose units associated β1–4 as the spine of the polymer with a D-galactose unit associated α1–6 to every second mannose unit.
  • Guar gum powder hydrates quickly in cold water as hydrocolloids to other stabilizers and gives highly viscous pseudo-plastic solutions.
  • Guar gum powder is a cost-effective thickener, stabilizer, and water-bonding agent.
  • Guar gum prevents the development of ice crystals and reduces the mass transfer in the solid/liquid interface.
  • Guar gum powder provides more solubility as compared to other emulsifiers because it has more galactose.
  • It does not form gels like other hydrocolloids and provides good steadiness to the frozen-thaw phase.
  • Guar gum powder has a polymeric formation and it contains numerous hydroxyl groups making it a useful product in food manufacturing and various other industrial units.
