Guar Gum has been cultivated in India and Pakistan for ages for use of its tender pods as fresh vegetables and other parts of the plant to be used as cattle feed. When in abundance the pods could also be used as cattle feed. Guar Gum grows well in the semi-arid regions of North-Western India and adjoining areas of Pakistan.
Guar Gum is derived from the seeds of the guar plant 'Cyamopsis tetragonalobus' belongs to the family Leguminosae. Guar Gum Powder is a white to yellowish white powder. It is almost odourless and fine powder. Guar Gum is available in different mesh sizes and viscosity.
