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.
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.
Regions For Growing Guar Gum
Guar Gums are produced on semi-arid regions say Gujarat, and to some extent in Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan. To get the best yield and harvesting results of guar seeds these seeds are sown in sandy soils, in the regions like North West India and some areas of Pakistan along with major regions in the west.
Benefits of Guar Gum
- Lowering blood Glucose
- Lowering insulin levels
Guar Gum Powder
The color of guar gum powder is whitish and yellowish consisting of slight odor. Cyamopsis tetragonolobus or Guar Plants endosperm derives Guar Gum. Guar crop is basically a legume (a plant of a pea family) which grows effectively in sandy soils, with rainfall to some extent with lots of sunshine.
Guar Gum powder is obtained from ground endosperm of guar plant. The seed pods of Guar are grown in groups, 100 Kilos of beans, minus their bean pods yields roughly 29 kilos of endosperm; 29 kilos of Guar powder.
India Followed by Pakistan and US is the key producer of Guar Seeds constituting approximately 80% of the over all production. Guar crop grows on semi arid and sub-tropical area harvested between Octobers to November. Guar seed is the combination of three things the germ, endosperm and the husk. Guar seed is basically the legume which regenerates the nitrogen in soil. Green Guar is the source of vegetables and also fed to cattle’s.
Guar Gum can also be termed as the best and appropriate substitute for locust bean gum. We offer goma guar as well as gomme guar from India.
Guar seeds are instantaneously sown after the first drizzles of the onset of monsoon i.e. in July. The Hay of Guar is very nutritive making it a good fodder when mixed with wheat powder. Guar seed can also be called as a cluster bean. This Kharif legume is a highly nutritious crop used as green manure, vegetable and green fodder. Guar Gum is extracted from Guar seeds and is grounded transforming it into Guar Gum Powder.
The processing machineries used by our company are packed with latest technologies to high quality products. The latest innovation and research has enabled the company to absorb contemporary technologies to swiftly change with the changing scenario of technology in the market.
With every stage of production utmost care is taken that the hygiene and the nutritive element remains unperturbed and is not open to contamination at any stage. Utmost care is taken that the microbiological substance is as low as possible with undergoing physio-chemical test as well.
Quality testing and quality control parameters are determined at every stage of production process. Quality testing parameters include testing of the factors like:
- 1. A.I.R. (Acidic Insoluble Residue
- 2. Moisture
- 3. Viscosity
- 4. Content of Ash
- 5. Size of the Particle
- 6. Odor
- 7. Protein
- 8. Filterability
- 9. Gum Content
- 10. Color
- 11. Fibre
- 12. Granulation
- 13. Insoluble Residue
- 14. Fat Content
- 15. pH
- 16. Heavy Metals
- 17. Arsenic
- 18. Lead
The Microbiological Quality Test consist of bacteriological test of the Food Grade products like Standard Plate Count, Yeast & Mould, Salmonella, E-coli, Colliform, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus etc.
