During last decade Guar has immerged as an important industrial raw material. India has been the single largest producer and exporter of Guar gum accounting for more than 80 percent of the global output and trade. Guar now plays an important role among the domestic plants due to its unique functional properties. Production of guar is mainly in the North Western part of the country which mainly includes the states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana and Punjab. Guar Gum is a high molecular weight carbohydrate polymer made up of a large number of mannose and Galactose unit linked together. The crude Guar Gum is a grayish white powder 90% of which dissolves in water. It is non-ionic polysaccharide based on the milled endosperm of the guar bean whose average composition is (Hydrocolloid-23%, Fats-40%, and Proteins-34%). The most important property of the Guar is its ability to hydrate rapidly in cold water to attain a very high viscosity at relatively low concentrations. Its specific colloidal nature gives the solution an excellent thickening power which is 6 to10 times thicker than that obtained from starch. It is stable over a wide range of pH and it also improves the progression of the fluid. Industrial grade guar gum powder is a versatile product and has different applications, as thickening & sizing agent, wet-end strength additive, gelling agent, water barrier, flocculation aid, for waste water treatment, emulsifier, binder. Also used for mud formulations, enhanced oil recovery, polymer flooding, well treatment, lost circulation plugging etc.
