Guar Seed

Guar Seed refers to the bean or cluster bean of the Cyamopsis tetragonolobus plant. The plant is an annual legume primarily cultivated in India which can be eaten as a green bean.

Guar seeds are small, oval-shaped, and typically green or brown in color. They have a tough outer husk or hull, which must be removed to access the endosperm.

Guar seeds play a crucial role in the production of guar gum, which, in turn, is essential for various industrial and commercial purposes. The seeds are an important agricultural commodity and contribute significantly to the economies of regions where guar is cultivated.

Guar seeds are processed to obtain guar gum. The process involves removing the outer hull to obtain guar splits, and then further milling or grinding the splits to produce guar gum powder. Guar gum is a valuable thickening and stabilizing agent used in various industries, including food, pharmaceuticals, and the oil and gas sector.
