Indian Cluster Bean
Indian Cluster Bean (Guar or Cyamopsis tetragonoloba) is an annual legume plant that grows in semiarid regions. It is drought-tolerant and can be eaten green like snap beans or fed to cattle. It bears many bean-like pods, each of which contains six to nine small, rounded seeds. The guar seed is typically made up of 40% to 46% germ, 38% to 45% endosperm, and 14% to 16% husk.
Guar gum is a powder obtained from the dried, grounded endosperm of the Indian Cluster bean itself. It is a natural, edible thickening agent and forms a gel in water to produce highly viscous solutions. One of the most amazing and unique features of Guar gum is its ability to hydrate rapidly in cold water.
The gum has wide application in Food & Pharmaceutical Industry; as thickener & stabilizing agent. It’s market position is often challenged by well-financed synthetic and natural gums competition, especially from modified starches and gum systems. However, as a natural product, it offers an intrinsic attraction to consumers of foods, beverages, and nutraceuticals, which cannot be matched by synthetics.
