What is Guar Gum?

Guar gum is a thickener obtained from the seeds of the Siamese copper. This plant, which has been cultivated in Pakistan since ancient times, is classified as annual plants and guar is planted in late July and harvested in November. And then harvested seeds of guar are dried in the sun, separated from shells and made ready for industrial production.


How is Guar Gum produced?

Guar Gum is extracted industrially from guar seeds. Mechanical processes during production; Roasting, shell separation, sieving, and polishing are applied. The seed is broken and the germ fraction is separated from the endosperm. Two half endosperms are defined as shells under the shell.


Guar gum, obtained by milling seed endosperms of Guar plant, is available in two types as food and industrial purity. Although the type of guar gum is pure grounded endosperm, industrial purity is produced using some chemical additives.


Refined guar particles are formed when the outer shell portion of the fibrous structure is separated from the endosperm by polishing. Protein-rich crust and germ are considered as animal feed. The refined guar is converted to the fine powder form depending on the nature of the desired final product.


What kind of areas Guar Gum is used?


Guar gum is used in different areas like food, beverage, personal care products, cat dog foods, pharmaceutical industry, household cleaning products, paint and building materials, textile and carpet industry, mining, oil, gas industry and drilling industry, paper, explosives, casting and ceramics industry, industrial cleaners, agricultural products, fire extinguishers.


High purity guar gum is produced in different viscosity, hydration capacity and different particle sizes for use in food, feed and pharmaceutical industries. Modified variants of the guar range that enable it to address industrially diverse uses; hydrolyzed, hydroxyalkyl, carboxyalkyl, oxidized, sulfated, borated, cationic combinations.


Guar Gum Use in  Pharmaceutical industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, guar gum acts as an effective scavenger, stabilizer, and thickener, particularly in the production of tablet-type drugs, as an adjuvant in the microencapsulation of drugs.

• Used as a thickening and suspending agent, especially in shampoos and toothpaste,

• It acts as a thickening and protective agent in creams and lotions,

• It provides easy removal of toothpaste and shaving creams from the containers.

• It gives better viscosity and foam stability in shampoos.


Guar Gum in the Textile Industry


When used in the textile industry for sizing and printing purposes, it serves as an excellent film and thickener and reduces the curvature and skew in the products and gives effect to production. It also reduces the breakage of the wool yarns during sizing.


Guar Gum in Production of Paper

In the paper industry, the guar gum which gives better writing and wiping properties to paper improves hardness and gives good folding properties due to its advanced adhesive properties so it provides a more intense and dense surface feature for printing paper.
