Guar gum is a galactomannan, obtained from plant Cyamopsis tetragonolobus (Leguminoceae). It has wide applications in Pharmaceutical formulations, Cosmetic, Food, Textile, Paper, Explosive, Toiletries industries etc. In pharmaceuticals, it is used as tablet binder and disintegrant, suspending, thickening and stabilising agent, as a controlled release carrier. Chemically guar gum is a hydrocolloidal polysaccharide composed of sugar galactose and mannose in molecular ratio of 1:1.4-1:2… Expand
