Guar Gum

Description:

Guar gum is a fine off white to pale yellow powder with a starch like odour

Function / Dosage:

Guar Gums are effective thickeners and stabilisers, it is soluble in cold water and the viscosity of a 1% solution in cold water after 24 hrs is approx 5000Cps. Dosage for guar is 0.1 to 0.5% in food systems. The solution is translucent and has a starch like odour and flavour. Guar gum retards ice crystal growth non-specifically by slowing mass transfer across the solid/liquid interface. It shows good stability during freeze-thaw cycles. (Energy level low due to the fact that the human body cannot metabolise the carbohydrate therefore guar is 86.5% dietary fibre)
