Guar Gum has been cultivated in India and Pakistan for ages for use of its tender pods as fresh vegetables and other parts of the plant to be used as cattle feed. When in abundance the pods could also be used as cattle feed. Guar Gum grows well in the semi-arid regions of North-Western India and adjoining areas of Pakistan.

Guar Gum is also known to be cultivated in Texas, USA, some parts of South Africa, Malawi etc., but not in very large commercial quantities. In India the sowing season for guar is end of July and it is harvested during November (usually 90 days crop).

For effective Guar Gum cultivation, the crop needs two rainfalls before sowing, one rainfall when the crop buds out and another rainfall when the crop comes up well and blossoming starts. Then it requires plenty of sunshine and dry weather to come up really well. During harvesting period it again needs good sunshine in order to dry up and become usable for industries.

Guar Gum has been traditionally an annual crop cultivated in those areas which are dependent upon monsoon rains. However, due to higher prices of guar during the second half of nineties and early twenties, farmers have been encouraged to cultivate second crop of guar in irrigated farms, which is harvested during September. This additional crop has played a major role in checking unwanted hoarding and speculating in guar. Also, it suffices any shortfall in the main crop that is harvested during November.

Guar Gum is derived from the seeds of the guar plant 'Cyamopsis tetragonalobus' belongs to the family Leguminosae. Guar Gum Powder is a white to yellowish white powder. It is almost odourless and fine powder. Guar Gum is available in different mesh sizes and viscosity.

Guar Gum is a natural high molecular weight hydrocolloidal polysaccharide composed of galactose and mannose combined through glycosidic linkages, which may be described chemically as galactomannan. Guar Gum is easily soluble in Cold and Hot water (in colloidal form only).
