About Guar Gum:
Guar Gum, a galactomannan polysaccharide, is a free-flowing off-white powder produced from guar beans. It is the ground endosperm of the guar plant seed. It has thickening, nongelling, and stabilising properties, which make it suitable for use in food, feed, and industrial applications. It serves as a versatile polymer in the food industry and is added to food products, such as ice cream, milk shakes, yogurt, and aerated desserts, among others. As guar has more galactose branch points, it is relatively more water-soluble than other gums, and acts as a better emulsifier.
