Product Code: GGP020
Plant Part:
Extraction Method:
Guar Gum is derived from the ground endosperm of the guar plant, Cyanmopsis tetragonolobus belonging to the family Leguminosae. The guar plant is mainly grown in India and Pakistan from the month of July to December. At harvest time, the seeds are extracted from the pod of the plant and then ground into guar gum.
Common Uses:
Guar Gum is water soluble. When adding Guar Gum to a mixture it is best to add small quantities at a time. Be sure to stir for a while after each addition. If Guar Gum is added too quickly or in large quantities, it will gel or clump together. Guar Gum works well in mixtures that freeze but not in extreme heat or in pH (above pH8 or below pH5).
Its botanical name Cymbopogon comes from the Greek kumbe meaning 'boat' and pogon meaning 'beard', which alludes to the shape of its flower. It has been used by the indigenous people of South Africa as a remedy for injured feet, and is thought to have been used as an oil in their holy rites.
