Guar Gum is derived from the ground endosperm of Cyamopsis Tetragonolobus, a plant of the Leguminosae family. The plant grows to about 1-2 metres high with vertical stalks. The Guar seed pods, about 15 cm long, grow on these stalks and hold 6-9 seeds which are about 2-3 mm in diameter. Roughly, 14-16% of the Guar seed is the hull, 38-45% is the endosperm and 40-46% germ. "Guar" crop is sown after the first rains in June/July and is harvested after 3-4 months.It is a hardy, drought resistant crop that requiresmoderate rainfall at regular intervals.
Guar ( also called guaran), is primarily the ground endosperm of Guar beans.The Guar seeds are dehusked, milled and screened to obtain the guar gum. It is typically produced as a free flowing, pale, off-white colored, coarse to fine ground powder. Guar gum powder
is used as a thickener and emulsifier in commercial food processing and with Fracture Fluids in Mining Industry. Guar Gum has almost 8 times the thickening power as corn starch. Guar gum splits is refined endosperm derived from guar seed or cluster bean (cyamoperm tetragonoloba). Guar Gum Refined Split (Endosperm) is
mechanically separated from Guar seed which yields 28-30% of Refined Split.
Dry and warm weather is most suitable or Guar. Optimum temperature required for
its roots to develop is between 77 and 95 degrees F. It thrives on a wide range of soil
types, including sandy soils of low fertility. It needs far lesser volume of water thanany other competing crop and drought resistance is its important attribute. Another property of the crop is that it is an excellent green manure. Guar gum cultivation helps in soil building. The
succeeding crop (e.g. wheat etc) in farms where Guar has been in cultivation, gives 5 to 10 per cent more yield. Guar beans are harvested and dried following the growing season. The beans areshelled from the pods, the germ and hull removed. The resulting splits are
wet-milled into powder. Guar gum split manufacturer provide Guar gum splitwhich is used to manufacture Guar gum powder.Guar gum powder is used in various industries. Guar gum powder for paper,Guar gum powder for pharmaceuticals, Guar gum powder for explosives, Guar gum powder for animal feed, Guar gum powder for mining are its main uses.
