More information

The four-winged cyamopsis (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba (L.) Taub.) is an annual plant of the Fabaceae family, 1 to 2 m high with hairy trifoliate leaves and pink flowers.

This species, which is resistant to drought, is cultivated for its seeds, as fodder or as a vegetable.

The plant is also called "guar" or "guar bean".

It is from West Africa

Guar gum is composed mainly of galactomannan, a soluble and calorie-free vegetable fiber.

Its function in the seed is to serve as a reserve of food and water.

Guar gum is a food additive (E412) widely used in the food industry.

Guar gum is mainly used as a binder, thickener and stabilizer in foods thanks to its uniform texture and its properties to form gels.

It can be used in sauces, ice creams and sorbets, bakery and pastry products, powders, etc. thanks to its uniform texture and its properties to form gels.

In particular, it makes it possible to lighten certain preparations by replacing the role of starch, sugars or fats.

Guar gum is effective both hot and cold.

This ability to hydrate without heating makes it very useful in many industrial applications.

It has a good synergy with xanthan gum, but does not form a gel with carrageenans.
