The Mechanism of Galactomannan is Higher in Refined Fenugreek Gum Powder, Why?

Fenugreek Seeds and Gum Powder

Botanically called as Trigonella foenum-graecum, the fenugreek seeds have been applied in food preparation as one of the important ingredients. The seeds contain high percentage of albumen and water soluble substance called galactomannan.

Some useful Information about Galactomannan

Galactomannan contains mannose and galactose whose properties help to act as emulsifier and viscosity. The presence of mannose and galactose quantity or ratio in the gum obtained from specific seeds like fenugreek, guar, etc. The usability of gum powder is decided based on the percentage of galactomannan.

Galactomannan from Fenugreek Gum Powder

Galactomannan from fenugreek granule contains good amount of polysaccharide which enables the granules to produce high rate of viscosity. Fenugreek gum galactomannan has high dietary fiber and it also shows better results in lowering blood cholesterol and blood sugar level.

Refined Fenugreek Gum Granule

Advanced fenugreek gum dust is obtained by processing the endosperm into several processes. The product obtained from refining process appears to be fine granules and there is variation of color in the final extract when compared to fenugreek gum extract by conventional process.

Galactomannan of Refined Fenugreek Powder Extract

Refined fenugreek gum powder has relatively better percentage of galactomannan. In 5g of superior fenugreek granule about 80% of galactomannan is present. This is again applied in food and drug preparation and found to be harmless even when the ratio of mannose and galactose appears to be relatively higher.

Comparing the gum properties of Guar, Locust and Fenugreek

While comparing fenugreek with other seeds of guar and locust, the gum extracted from the trigonella seeds is found to work more effectively in the process of reducing bad lipid from blood stream.

Mechanism of Advanced Gum Powder Fenugreek Galactomannan

Advanced gum powder of fenugreek seeds and mannose-galactose ratio has good absorption properties. It has relatively more water soluble fiber content and has the capacity to show increased viscosity. It is considered best nutrient to defend bacteria in the intestine by decomposing the absorbed glucose into fatty acid and thus reduced the amount of blood sugar. Hence, refined fenugreek has good demand in medical industry.

Suppliers of Advanced Gum Powder

Altrafine has a strong history of processing and supplying gum powder of various seeds since 1982. Our research and development team has been performing deep research on endosperm extraction and gum powders. We offer fenugreek gum powder in refined form and we assure our consumers for high grade advanced gum powder.

Properties of Purified Gum Powder offered at Altrafine

The purified fenugreek gum granule offered by contains good percentage of galactomannan. This powder gets easily soluble in water when it is mixed at room temperature. It has no specific taste or smell however contains excellent viscosity and gelling properties.


Refined fenugreek gum granule contains comparatively greater percentage of galactomannan which may not be found in gum that is not too much purified. This purified gum has a good demand in medical industry for its fiber rich property.
