Guar gum powder is a valuable carbohydrate product with excellent binding properties. Guar gum is a side stream product of the processing of dried guar seeds. It is located around the germ of these seeds. The guar seeds are roasted during production, after which the gum is mechanically separated and grinded into a powder. The roasting and grinding determines the product’s specific properties, reduces anti-nutrional factors, and improves digestibility and flavour. The end product is an odourless fine powder (available in various grades of fineness) with an off-white colour and characteristic flavour.
Guar gum powder is often used as an emulsifier, thickener and stabiliser in food and animal feed for young and adult animals, as well as in various technical applications.
