    However, there are a few restraints that are going to have an impact on production of it and its derivatives such as overall imbalance of demand and supply and shortages of raw materials.

    Segmentation of Global Industry

    In the food and beverage production, cassia gum is also used in pet nutriment production, but apart from that sector, both of the gum derivatives are used in meat products, dairy and confectionary and other natural food additives. The growth in demand of convenience nourishment is going to boost guar gum production.

    On the other hand, demand for this specific additive will be seen in sub-segment of the business such as cosmetics that is expected to rise in future. Its formulations and preparations will find increased usage in hair care products owing to properties like hair conditioning.

    The key players of guar gum market have adopted investment and expansion by launching new products in this sector that will garner greater market share.

  • Overview of the Guar gum and Cassia gum derivatives

    Guar Gum is the substance extracted from the Guar plant’s endosperm. The gum is extracted from this legume plant that consists of a high rate of molecular carbohydrate. For obtaining the gum, manufacturers pass the guar seeds through a series of procedures. Dust and unwanted materials get separated through the procedure and then the gum splits are mixed with a certain quantity of water for hydration. Finally they are dried up to form the guar gum powder. The by-products of the guar husks are used for feeding the cattle. Guar meal comprises high protein for individuals. Cassia gum powder is also manufactured from a wild weed, both commercially and wild. It grows best in the wet, hot, tropical climate. India and Pakistan are the lead producers of Guar and Cassia Gum derivatives for its suitable agro-climatic conditions. However, nowadays it is also successfully grown in Sudan, Brazil, USA and South Africa.

    Global opportunities

    The extracted gum from the guar plant serves as a great thickener, emulsifier and stabilizer in cosmetics and food industries and creates great opportunities globally for cultivators of the Guar gum producing nations. Not only the food industry, the traditional and industrial usages and opportunities are described below:

    Bakery products- Improves the structure, crumb, moisture retention and texture of the product and also helps to increase the shelf life and dough yield
    Medicinal purposes- Guar plant leaves serves excellent to cure the night blindness; boiled guar seed can be used as poultice for small pox, enlarged livers, plague, broken bones and head swellings
    Human consumption- the green ripe pods can be cooked like the French beans; immature pods can be either fried into chips or can be salted to preserve for future use
    Soil and crop improvement- guar can be commonly used as a green manure and cover crop
    Drilling oil wells- guar gum help in increasing the production of natural gas and oil and are also used as surfactant, defoamer and synthetic polymer
    Cassia acts as a stimulant, carminative and tonic. The volatile 1-2% of cassia oil of the cassia seeds creates the taste and spicy aroma. The industrial usage of the cassia tora powder is explained below:
    Pet food- used as a thickening agent for the wet canned food for pets
    Air fresheners- used in the making of air freshener gel
    Other application- used in manufacturing gel

    Challenges faced by the Guar and Cassia gum producing countries

    Several challenges are often faced by the cultivators of the guar and cassia gum countries like India and Pakistan. The productivity is of low quality as farmers hardly uses any inputs and cultivates on marginal quality soil. Quality seeds are also not available. The specifications for buying the gum are often subjective with the size, colour and shape. Most often, the farmers are not even aware of the varieties that suit their area. Value-addition for this industry is poor as a major percentage of the export is made in the form of refined splits.

    Conclusion

    With the wide range of application and usage of the guar gum, cassia seeds, cassia gum powder, cassia tora powder across the world, the farmers should be given proper training on the use of inputs like pesticides, weedicides and quality seeds to ensure higher quality production. Also, efforts in the development of machinery and equipments should be made to process guar and test the quality of the finished product. With these efforts the guar gum producing countries are sure to offer the importers their quality products at a reasonable price.

    Cassia gum is gelling agent.

    Cassia gum is very useful in the manufacture of gels in combination of other colloids and has potentially many food applications. Cassia powder swells in water and forms high-viscosity aqueous colloids after it is boiled. It is used as a thickening agent in pet food and other technical applications (e.g. emulsification, foam stabilization, moisture retention and texture improvement) at concentrations comparable to those of other edible natural gums.

    Cassia gum forms firm, thermoplastic gels with carrageenan. As the level of cassia gum is increased, the gel strength of carrageenan solutions is also increase. Cassia gum and carrageenan gel is stable due to the excellent retorting stability of cassia gum.

    Cassia gum and xanthan gum, on their own, do not have the ability to form gels. But cassia gum combined with xanthan gum, aqueous dispersions of cassia gum form cohesive, elastic gels. As with carrageenan, cassia is more efficient at forming gels with xanthan gum than other galactomannans, enabling lower total hydrocolloid levels in finished formulations. This is due to the unique branched polysaccharide galactose/mannose structure of cassia gum.

    Refined Cassia Gum / Purified Cassia Gum:

    Refined Cassia gum also known as purified cassia gum.
    Refined cassia gum contain high number of galactose and mannose.
    Refined cassia gum has light colour and it also gives high viscosity.
    So small quantity of refined cassia gum gives high gel strength with Carrageenan.
    The gel has also light colour.
