Guar Sakızı

Description
A premium grade, high viscosity, fine-grind Guar Gum for use in foods and feeds where superior whiteness, fast hydration and high viscosity are desired.


Classification
• FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius - Food Status: A1, ADI: Not Specified
• European Community - Food Status: E-412, ADI: Not Specified
• Food Chemical Codex - Food Status: Direct Food Additive. Guar gum that meets FCC specifications is affirmed as GRAS as a direct food additive under FDA regulation 184.1339
• FEMA/GRAS No: 2537
• CAS No: 9000-30-0

Typical Values
General Properties
  • White to cream coloured powder.
  • Extracted from the endosperm of Guar seeds,  “Cyamopsis Tetragonalobus”.
  • Hot and cold water soluble Galactomannan Polysaccharide. Beta 1,4 linear mannose backbone chain with a single galactose side unit on approximately (average) every alternate mannose unit in an alpha 1,6 linkage.
  • Exhibits high viscosity at low concentrations in water. Non-Newtonian, pseudo-plastic (shear thinning) rheology. Viscosities increase exponentially with increasing concentrations in water.
