Agro Gums Guar Gum Powder AG 20/70

Agro Gums Guar Gum Powder AG 20/70 when dissolves in water gives galactose, hexose sugar and mannose. The hexose sugars are soluble both in cold as well as hot water but cannot dissolve in most of the organic solvents. It’s viscosity increases in water. Therefore even smaller quantity of it when used with water can be effective in producing high viscosities. However this viscosity of this powder decreases with acids. The strong acids which can cause hydrolysis and alkalies in strong concentration tend to reduce the viscosity. Adding borax solution will form a gelatinous mass. It can be used with starch, agar and alginate. Agro Gums is a leading manufacturer offers high viscosity guar gum.
