  • Hydrocolloids are characterised by their ability to form a highly viscous solution when mixed with water. Water being essential ingredients in most of the food products, makes hydrocolloids the most favourable additive whenever there is a requirement of change of texture. Long chains of polymers, present in Hydrocolloids like Guar Gum, leads to abundance in presence of hydroxyls. These hydroxyls bind with water molecules altering the viscosity of the whole solution. Hydrocolloids are being used extensively in soups, jelly, jams, gravies and various other products to modify their rheology. They act as thickening and gelling agents while also helping improve and preserve the quality of food over a long duration of time. Hydrocolloids property to control the growth of crystals of ice and sugar has allowed it makes its way into ice-creams, dessert and similar products.

    Cassia Tora Seeds

    Thickening Agent:

    Hydrocolloid’s most important use in any food product is to provide viscous texture. The reasons why they are used so extensively in food products are mentioned below:

    1. Hydrocolloids provide high-grade thickening at comparatively low prices. Its abundance of availability and low cost makes it favourable for use.
    2. Hydrocolloids are having the ability to maintain viscosity over a wide range of pH and under high temperature. Since food products are most probably to be exposed to extensive heat and usually contains ingredients with different ph, it is important for hydrocolloids to remain stable.
    3. While hydrocolloids are fairly stable, in terms of viscosity; it is also important that viscosity can be altered as per desire. It is known that the viscosity of certain hydrocolloids, such as Arabic Gum, decreases with an increase in shear stress. This property can be used to alter viscosity as per the requirement.

    While Starch, a hydrocolloid, is relatively cheap and abundant as compared to other hydrocolloids its thickening ability is considerably low. If one wants to use starch and wants a high-grade thickening effect, he/she has to add it in large amounts. Because of such high content of starch, it is a possibility that the taste of food might get altered. Guar gum powder, which has eight times the thickening effect of starch, is used in low concentration in various food products and still gives better results. Some of the products in which Gaur gum is used are ice-cream, ketchup, fruit Juices and pudding powder.

    Gelling Agent:

    While the functionality of gelling agents overlaps with that of thickening agents, it is important to know that the gelling agent gives a gel-like texture without the presence of any stiffness while thickeners are often known for the stiffness that it provides. Cassia Tora powder, hydrocolloids, is a naturally occurring gelling agent and also add to taste of the food.  Guar gum powder has the ability to mix in hot/cold water and possess shear thinning property. This property allows it to provide gel-like texture at low ph and at certain shear stress. While most of the gelling effects produced by hydrocolloids are reversible under certain ph or temperature, there are some which produce irreversible effects. Such hydrocolloids with irreversible gelling agents are usually used in the making of dairy products. Using Carboxymethylcellulose, like that of Guar gum, consistency index and viscosity of the product increases with greater efficiency as compared to when using Xanthan Gum or Tragacanth.

    What do we provide?

    At Agro Gums, we provide a variety of hydrocolloids including Guar, Cassia and Sesbania.

  • Guar gum is used in Food and Non-food industries at wide scale.  It is regarded as GRAS that means that it is safe for consumption for human as well as animals. India is the largest producer of guar gum and contributes 80% of total guar production in the world.

    The awareness about the quality of gum is increasing worldwide due to numerous reasons such as chain transparency, environment degradation and information availability about its source among the consumers.

    As a consequence, both farmers and end-users of guar gum became aware about the organic methods of its farming, to avoid synthetic pesticides which can pollute soil, air and water. There is a substantial demand of organic guar gum in many countries as it is environmental-friendly.

    Guar gum Powder
    Guar Gum: Organic Farming for High Quality Yield                                               

    Here are certain listed indications for suitable weather conditions;

    • Guar is an annual legume plant, grown in India. It is a drought-tolerant plant, and grows properly in sunlight and dry weather.
    • It can even cope with little or moderate rainfall.
    • It requires sufficient soil moisture prior sowing its seeds and during maturation. Thus, the apt time to sow guar seeds is after first rains in the month of June or July.

    The organic farming of guar crop is important to get yield of good quality, and to minimize harmful effects to soil fertility and texture. It consists of strategic method of seed selection and harvesting.

    There are other processes such as land and seed treatment, line sowing, deep hoeing and pest management. This type of farming encourages use of organic repellent and fertilizer instead of chemicals.

    • Some of the methods are described below:

    Seed Selection: Under organic farming, the organically produced and treated varieties of seeds are selected for cultivation to get high quality production of guar.

    Soil Management: It relies on the natural breakdown of organic matter of soil. Green manure and composting are some of the techniques which can provide nutrients to the soil used by previous crops.

    Pest Management: Organic pest management promotes weed suppression instead of weed elimination. The farmers integrate cultural, biological, mechanical, physical and chemical tactics to manage weeds without synthetic herbicides.

    For instance, frequent crop rotation can control the growth of weeds and promote the growth of natural microorganisms.

    Line Sowing: The line sowing method can help to achieve higher yield by reducing weed. This method helps in proper weeding, irrigation, harvesting and processing of crops. It minimizes drudgery in weeding process.

    A considerable hike in production and improvement in quality of guar cultivation was found due to its strategic and organic farming. Upon cultivation, guar gum is extracted from endosperm of seeds after removing the husk and germ portions from it.

    Organic Guar Gum: Utilization in Food & Industrial Sector

    • The customers are inclined to maintain their well-being by using natural products. They ask about the source and method of production of raw materials. Thus, the demand of organic guar gum has risen worldwide in the following industries:

  • GRAS stands for Generally Regarded As Safe products.


    As we know, guar gum is a hydro colloid obtained from the seeds of the legume guar. This is utilized in various array of industries, ranging from mining and construction to cosmetics and food.


    To prevent unwanted health side-effects and to avoid the over usage of a substance, the FDA imposes some rules and restrictions on the addition of different constituents to food.


    Partially hydrolyzed guar gum, is produced by an enzymatic process on the guar gum. After this it is dried by spraying and sterilized by special techniques. After purification procedures, it is powderised and packed in to suitable packets, ready for dispatch.

    Guar gum Powder


    The molecular size and viscosity are significantly less. It also offers more stability against, acid, pH, digestive enzymes, etc. It does not interact with and denature the protein solutions. At higher temperature, its viscosity decreases proportionally. Thus as temperatures increase, it becomes easier to apply. Because of this properties, it is a preferential fiber for dietary use. Its use has increased over the past years. It is used as Sunfiber.

    Recently the restrictions on addition on guar gum have been liberalized, and now the gradual addition of partially hydrolyzed guar gum to the food products is limited only by the cGMP content. Because of this, guar gum can be added to several food items, that are more appealing to the general public. By adding guar gum, their fiber content is thus increased. Thus healthier and appealing diet can be given to the people.

    If a substance should be added to the food, it ought to be a water-soluble, colorless, odorless and tasteless product, so as to maintain the original flavour of the food.

    There can be many advantages of the guar gum as a significant component of our diets.

    The applications of the partially hydrolyzed guar gum in food industry are as follows:

    1. Used as a medicine. Even in the earlier times, guar gum was mixed with some products and heated to obtain a medicine for the treatment of digestive tract disorders. Till today, its use has been persistent. If the fiber content of the usually consumed food items, is increased, the constipation can be avoided. It also helps in diarrhoea. As this fiber is a pro-biotic, it increases the growth of good bacteria and also prevents the foreign bacterial colonies, thus benefits in infective diarrhoea. But this use has not been verified.
    2. Enhancement of nutritive value of food items. Fibers are nutritive but they are bulky and non-palatable. Their addition in day to day food items ultimately will increase the nutritional capacity of the food article.
    3. As this is a low-calorie product, which is bulky, its addition to the food items may benefit obese individuals by decreasing their calorie intake.
    4. In When added to the cereal, it helps to increase the flow-rate and thus its bowl life.
    • liquid food items.
    • Provides foam stability for the shakes.
    • Improves the suspension of the particulate in soups.
    • Improves the consistency of salad dressing.
    1. Prevents the formation of ice crystals in ice creams and other dairy products.
    2. It is used for the improvement in the texture of yogurt.
    3. It also works as a substitute of sugar in whipped cream and steamed bread. It is better than other sugar substitutes as it is a completely natural product and does not undergo any digestive process.
    4. It is used as a bulking agent in various dairy products including yogurt.
    5. It also prevents the starch dispersion from boiled rice, without the change in the final consistency and the texture of the product.
    6. Some of the studies have shown the PHGG to lower the glycaemic index. This supports its use in the diabetics.

  • Let’s start with what IBS means?

    IBS or the irritable bowel syndrome, is an inflammatory condition of the large intestine.When body’s defense systems, mess up they start attacking our own organs! IBS is one such disease.

    So Irritable Bowel Syndrome is of two types:

    Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are the two forms of the disease.

    These diseases are caused due to overactive immune system. The defence system of the body, attacks the mucosa (the inner most layer of the gut canal) and causes the formation of ulcers. In other places, the area becomes swollen and reddish and painful.

    These diseases mainly cause morbidity. That is the painful condition that limits movement and capacity. These diseases rarely cause fatalities.


    These are un-treatable diseases. There is no particular cure. So these have to be managed by various measures. Medicines are generally administered. But it becomes, a little difficult to stay put with medicines for a long time because of their irritating side effects.

    PHGG or the partially hydrolysed guar gum is commonly used to manage IBS.These guar gum is safe to be mixed in the foods and beverages and is said to be GRAS – Generally Regarded As Safe guar gum. Recently the limit of PHGG as an ingredient in the food has increased, owing to it nutritional benefits and its positive effect on the irritable bowel syndrome.

    The advantages of use of Partially Hydrolysed Guar Gum in the management of IBS are as follows.

    • The original guar gum, extracted from endosperm of guar plant, can not be easily incorporate into foods and beverages, due to its thick consistency and a high potential as a thickening agent.
    • It is a natural product with a little processing that does not change its constitution significantly.
    • Even if its a bulky product, it is tasteless. It is odourless and colourless. So it is palatable and when added to other food items, it does not alter the food considerably.All these properties increase the compliance of the patients to the diet.
    • When ingested, it is a relatively inert product and is not affected by any enzymes. It does not alter the structure of proteins and fats. It can be taken along any other food item.
    • When needed to be mixed with a particular food, it can easily mix and does not change the formation of the product. In some cases, also benefits as a thickening agent and as a bulk-forming agent in yogurt.
    • It also has pro-biotic properties. Thus it stimulates the growth of normal gut flora. Increase in the same, prevents infection by other micro organisms. The normal gut bacteria also release various enzymes that increase the excretion of harmful waste products and help in better absorption of metabolic nutrients like vitamins.
    • As the intestinal mucosa is inflamed, the passage of stool causes considerable morbidity. These may also lead to psychological constipation. When these kind of fibers are integrated in diet, they absorb water and swell up. They also increase the osmotic water retention inside the bowel. They increase the bulk of the stool and also make it softer. Thus the stool passes easily without causing much pain.
    • Because of constipation accompanying IBS, many patients resort to laxative medication. With the use of fibers, the requirement of the medicines becomes almost nil.

    Most of the studies conducted so far, have not regarded dietary fiber as a beneficial component in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. But the experience supports the theory. Some newer studies support the use of PHGG in diet for the management of IBS. Apart from the intestinal benefits, these fibers also provide other health benefits and thus looks at improving the general lifestyle.

  • What is Cassia Gum Powder?

    Obtained from the weed plant Caesalpiniaceae, growing extensively in the northern plains of

    India, cassia tora powder is a natural thickening agent. This powder is a yellow to off-white coloured powder, when dissolved in hot water, it forms thick gels. It also forms gels with the carageenan and xanthan. Cassia powder is a polymer of mannose and galactose sugars. These sugar residues have free groups on the side chains which makes the molecule cationic.

    Cassia powder is a product with a lot of useful properties. Its water solubility is the most important property. Also the ability to act in different media offers a plasticity and freedom to the various industries that utilize the guar gum powder.

    What is the use of cassia tora powder in cosmetics?

    • Cassia tora powder is used in shampoos and conditioners to give a soft and smooth finish. Shampoo and conditioner both are thick vicious products. The thickness and viscosity helps in preventing over usage of the product and the consequent damage to the hair. The cassia powder used in this products, increases the viscosity and imparts a thick paste like form, which can be easily applied to the hair. Being a colloid, it forms a protective film around the hairs and thus protects them from other harmful chemicals, that may be contained in the products. Some of the product is retained on the strands of the hair and this may help to prevent the damage due to blow-drying of hair or heat applications.
    • It is used in the creams and lotions to thicken them. These products are meant for staying on the skin and thus preventing the contact of the skin to dry air. Cassia powder is inherently cationic in nature. This property helps it bind with the anionic components of human hair and skin. Thus the cosmetic product stays longer and effect is exerted for a longer duration. Also the paste like creams and lotions are easier to apply to the skin. The cassia powder also has lubricating properties, which adds to the cosmetic effect of the product.
    • It is also used in shaving gels. Being a surfactant it smoothens the movement of razor on the skin. A thin layer of the shaving gel is formed on the skin and this layer is stabilized with the help of cassia powder.
    • Being a natural ingredient it is least harmful to the skin and thus is used extensively in cosmetics. Around the recent times, we have noticed an increasing usage of organic cosmetic make-up and other products.
    • Cassia powder is also present in the foundations, concealers, etc, which retains the product for a long time. It also decreases the surface tension thus, helps the product to glide easily on the skin. The thick constitution of the products, owing to the cassia powder, allows even spread on the skin, giving the makeup a professional touch.
    • Cassia powder has a long shelf life thus making it even more useful in cosmetics. Lets face it, Makeup products are costly and are to be used less at one time. These products are preserved for long times and the longer the expiry date, better it is for the customers.
    • Soaps generally dry-off your skin and give it a tired look. Addition off cassia powder to the liquid soaps, allots a gel formation and also acts as a lubricant which reduces the succeeding dry skin.

    Thus we can conclude, that cassia gum powder is highly useful product in the cosmetic industry. It can be used alone or it can also be easily used in combination with guar gum powder or also with carageenan and xanthan.

  • The hydrocolloids are a diverse group of long chain polymers with the ability to form viscous dispersions or gels when dispersed in water. They were discovered from trees, plant extracts, sea weeds, flours, seeds and gummy slimes from fermentation processes and other natural processes. The presence of the large number of hydroxyl groups has been seen to increase the affinity for binding water molecules to render them as hydrophilic compounds.

    Industries  Benefited from Hydrocolloids

    Dispersions Formation

    The ability of the hydrocolloids to produce dispersions, which are intermediate state between a true solution and a suspension, is seen as a key characteristic of a colloid and hence they may also be referred to as hydrophilic colloids or “hydrocolloids”.

    The hydrocolloids have a wide range of functional properties in various industries arising from their properties such as thickeners, gel formation, emulsification, stabilization, coating characteristics. They also have a great ability to modify the flow characteristics of various compounds.

    Synthetic Hydrocolloids

    They are mainly chemical derivatives, which make a similar structure to the natural hydrocolloids. Common synthetic hydrocolloids are acrylic acid polymers which are also known as carbomers. With advancements in research, chemical manufacturers have merged science with nature to develop semi synthetic hydrocolloids. Chemical scientists are able to produce cellulose gum through addition of carboxy-methyl groups to the backbone of cellulose, to impart a negative charge to cellulose and make it water soluble.

    Some of the advantages of the synthetic hydrocolloids are increased potency, resistance to microbial degradation and solution clarity.

    Natural Hydrocolloids

    There are generally from natural sources such as plant and animal sources and they include;

    • Plant; pectin, carrageenan, cellulose gum, locust bean gum, guar gum split,
    • Animal origin; these include gelatine,
    • Microbial sources: these include Xanthan gum and gellan gum.

    Industrial users of hydrocolloids include;

    Food Industry

    The food industry is a heavy consumer of hydrocolloids as they have a profound impact on the food properties. The main function is by their modification of the flow behaviour (viscosity) and mechanical solid property (texture) of food items. Another advantage is that natural hydrocolloids belong to category of the permitted food additives in most countries.

    Synthetic Hydrocolloids in Dentifrices

    There is continued use of synthetic hydrocolloids in manufacturing of convectional toothpastes, as they are derivatives of cellulose. The basic structure of the toothpaste is that it contains a blend of polishing agents, suspended in aqueous glycerine, sorbitol or propylene glycol liquid phase by means of a hydrocolloid. It therefore has a key role in maintaining product stability.

    Oil Production Industry

    The oil and gas mining industry has also been a major consumer of the hydrocolloids. The most used is guar gum powder and others of similar nature. They are used in the fracking process of oil exploration, where they help increase oil production in both horizontal and vertical drilling.

    Personal Care Industry

    The most used natural hydrocolloids in this area are the Xanthan gum, pectin carrageenan, gellan and CMC. They function as thickening, suspending and stabilizing agents in lotions, sunscreens and body washes.

    Paper Making

    The most used hydrocolloid here is the carboxy-methyl cellulose (CMC), which is used in paper making to impart good runnability, efficiency and quality on the paper and board products.

There has been a deliberate effort by governments around the world to increase the level of crude production, led by the United States government. This is a total reversal to the trend that had been witnessed three years ago.  By the end of the year 2016, the investor’s sentiment had already changed from a negative outlook to positive with an 8 % increase in guar prices observed by early 2017. There is a general opinion from stakeholders that the demand level of the guar powder alone will rise by over 25%.

    Guar Gum Powder

    Usage in Other Industries

    Apart from usage in the oil exploration industry, Guar Gum Splits have other important uses in industry. Their property as an effective natural thickening agent puts it at the top in demand. Manufacturing industries such as toothpaste, food processing and pharmaceutical production have high requirements for the food grade guar gum splits. This demand level coupled by good rate of economic developments in various countries has created a good sentiment among the guar gum traders.

    The Cassia Tora

    The cassia powder is also used as food additive in food and beverage making. It acts as foam stabilizer, emulsifier and texture enhancement product. Cassia Tora Split market sentiment is expected to continue with an upward trend with its increasing usage in products like baby food, dairy products, biscuits and jellies.

    Sesbania Gum Powder

    Sesbania Gum Powder is another important hydrocolloid gaining popularity in various industries. One incentive for the popularity of the Sesbania is the ease of availability compared to other natural gums. The product is also favored for its ability to resist degradation at high temperatures. Its high solubility makes it preferred in waste water treatments than other natural hydrocolloids.
