Guar Gum Powder

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.

Quality

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.
