Food applications:
One of the major applications for guar gum powder is the production of bread. Even small quantities of guar gum powder, when added to the dough, increase the yield, give greater resilience, improve texture and give longer shelf life.
In this field, guar gum is used as an excellent binder of water and as a stabiliser. It is used in the production of ice creams, sherbets, cheese, liquid milk products and others.
Guar gum can be used as a lubricant and is an excellent binder for various meat products. It allows storing with less loss of weight and can decrease the filling time for cans.
Dressing and sauces:
Guar gum can be used as a lubricant and excellent thickener to improve the stability and appearance of salad dressings, barbecue sauces, relishes, ketchups, etc. It is compatible with highly acidic emulsions.
Guar gum can be used as a stabiliser for chocolate drinks, fruit nectars and juices.
