What is Guar Gum?

Guar gum is a mechanically processed, off-white, free-flowing powder used as a thickener and stabilizer in several industries and applications. It is also generally tasteless and odourless in most methods of manufacture.

The production of Guar Gum usually occurs through 4 stages: Dehusking, Hydration, Milling and Screening. The Guar seeds (hence the name) then get milled into a fine powder. The Guar Bean is most commonly grown in India, where approximately 80% of all production occurs.

The most common area of application for Guar Gum is the Food Industry. You will find this as both a thickener and stabilizing agent. The most common products that benefit from this include Yoghurts, Sauces and Gluten-Free Baked Goods (to recreate the texture of Gluten bread.

Additionally, you can find it in industrial plants as a waterproofing, adhesive and density regulator in many applications such as glues, oils and paper manufacturing. Finally, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics use Guar for a similar purpose to the food industry; to bind, thicken and condition products. As a result, you can see Guar Gum within medicines, toothpaste (maintain consistency), shampoos and many more.
