Applications

Guar Gum is a very versatile and efficient bio-polymer covering a wide range for Industrial and Food applications such as:

FROZEN FOODS

Function:
In frozen foods it controls crystal growth, prevents moisture loss, reduces freezer burn, controls synerisis prevents thaw, separation & controls freezing point.

Used in: Ice cream, soft serves, frozen cakes etc.


MEAT PRODUCTS

Function:
Guar acts as a binder and lubricant in the manufacturer of a variety of meat products such as sausages. The cold water solubility and hydration of Guar Gum permits easy processing absorbing and binding excess water.

Used in: Meat products etc.


BAKED FOOD

Function:
Used as moisture retention agent and as a dough conditioner in backed foods. It imparts desirable binding and film forming properties that retards the penetration of fats and oils.

Used in: Breads, cakes, pastries etc.


DAIRY PRODUCTS

Function:
It prevents syneresis in the cheese formation. Guar Gum improves texture, tenderness and maintains color uniformity and viscosity. It improves the mouth feel in dairy products.

Used in: Yogurt, desserts, Mousse, cheese etc.


SAUCES AND PICKLES

Function:
It improves the free flowing properties of sauces and reduces the separation between water and oil faces. It is unique cold water dispersible, acid resistant, free water binder in salad dressing, sauces, pickles and relishes.

Used in: Sauces, pickles, Barbecue relish, Salad dressing etc.


CONFECTIONERY

Functions:
Guar Gum plays an important role in various confectionery products like chocolate cream, jellies and biscuits. Due to its properties of viscosities control, moisture, retention, bloom control, gel creation, agar and gelatin replacer, giazing agent.

Used in: Chocolates, jellies, biscuits etc.


BEVERAGES

Function:
Used as moisture retention agent and as a dough conditioner in backed foods. It imparts desirable binding and film forming properties that retards the penetration of fats and oils.

Used in: Cocoa drinks, fruit juices, sugar less and alcoholic beverages and etc.


PET FOODS

Function:
It is a good thickener stabilizing agent for veterinary preparations. It forma gels, retains moisture & moisture foods.

Used in: Veterinary preparations, calf milk replacer etc.


COSMETICS

Function:
Used as thickening agent, lubricating agent, suspending agent, detergent compatible thickener, protective colloids, film forming agent.

Used in: Ointments, Lotions, Hair shampoo, Hair conditioner etc.


PASTE & CREAM

Function:
Due to its high viscosity, it imparts slip for extruding the paste from the tube without any excessive pressure.

Used in: Tooth paste, shaving cream etc.


MINING

Function:
Guar Gum is used in mining industry as a floatation agent or setting agent, foam stabilizer & in the generation of back water.

Used in: Concentration of ore, filtration etc.


TOBACCO

Function:
Guar Gum is used as a binder for fragmented tobacco fins in the manufacture of reconstituted tobacco. It is used as a binding and strengthening agent.

Used in: Reconstitution of fragmentation in tobacco.


OIL WELL DRILLING AND EXPLOSIVE

Functions:
Guar Gum is widely used in oil well drilling due to its multi-functions such as water loss control, viscosity control, friction reduction, lubricants and cooling of the drill bits, in explosive guar improves resistance to water aging in explosive gels. Guar Gum when used with transition metal ions, increases viscosity. It also works as a thickening agent in blasting slurry and for explosive mixture.

Used in: Drilling fluid, hydraulic fracturing etc.


PHARMACEUTICALS

Function:
Recent studies make the Guar Gum Powder very important for pharmaceuticals industries. Different quality of Guar shows different effect in medicines. Tablet preparation. In tablet preparation Guar Gum powder is used as a binder and disintegrating agent for compressed tablets. Laxatives: it increases the intestinal transit time and increases bulk and stool. Suspensions: It is a suitable suspending agent in anti-inflammatory drugs and also used in treatment of oral infection.

Used in: Laxatives, Sustained release drug, vitamin, syrups etc.


PAPER INDUSTRY

Function:
Guar’s cost effectiveness and properties make it a useful polymer for paper industry. It increases fold, tensile strength, pick and pulp hydration. Simultaneously it decreases the porosity and improves finish for better paper quality.

Used in: Wrapping paper, craft, photographic paper, filter etc.


TEXTILE PRINTING & SIZING

Function:
In sizing it increases the strength of warp thereby reducing it breakages and also reduces the dusting of sizing machine. It has a good film forming property. It is used as a dispersant & thickening agent for dyes in textile printing.

Used in: Cotton, rayon, silk, wool sizing, carpet printing etc.


MISCELLANEOUS USES

Guar Gum powder produced by SHREE GUM UDYOG is also widely used in other products such as photography, water treatment, fire fighting, incense stick, mosquito mat, soups, snacks, puddings, noodles, gems, ceramics, synthetic resins, carpet painting, wallpaper, water based paints, battery electrolytes, printing inks, polishes etc.
