Hydrolized Guar Gum
The magic seeds of the guar plant
This specialized thickening agent provides binding, prevents syneresis and is flavour-neutral.
Guar Gum is made from seeds of the guar plant, which grows in India and Pakistan. The endosperm of the Indian Guar seeds are processed into flavour-neutral guar gum. Hydrolized Guar Gum is a viscosity reduced Guar Gum in the range of 100-2000 Mpas. Therefore higher dosages are possible without creating too much viscosity. This gives many opportunities compared to the standard high viscosity Guar Gum, like:
More creamy mouthfeel (specially in fat reduced products).
Better flavor release
Better stabilization of essential oils
Improved syneresis reduction
Freeze and Thaw stable
