Guar is also known as cluster bean, is used as a vegetable. It’s botanical name Cyamopsis tetragonoloba. It is an annual legume and grows well in semiarid areas, but frequent rainfall is necessary. It can grow upright, reaching a maximum height of up to 2–3 m. It can grow on various types of soils. Preferably in fertile, medium-textured and sandy loam soils that are well drained, as water accumulation reduces plant performance. Like other legumes, guar is an excellent soil-building crop with respect to availability of nitrogen. Root nodules contain nitrogen-fixing bacteria and crop residues, when ploughed under, improves yields of succeeding crops. Guar seeds are de-husked, milled and screened for guar gum. It is usually formulated as a free flowing, pale, white, coarse ground powder. The guar gum is produced from endosperm and consists mainly of gummy Polly groups of monogalactoses with small amount of fiber and minerals. Guar bean seeds have a large ovary. It consists of large polysaccharides of endosperm galactose and meningococcus. This polymer is water soluble and has a viscous effect in water. Guar gum has numerous applications in food products, industrial products and the hollow industry.
Guar plants can be used as animal feed, but due to the hydrocyanic acid in their beans, only adult beans can be used. It increases the yield of subsequent crops as this legume conserves soil nutrient content. It is used in Bakery, Beverage, Cosmetics, Dairy, Fine Food, Food, Fruit Preparation, Ice Cream, Pet food etc. It’s functions is to serve as water binding in bread, stabilizer in fine food like sauces and dressings and many more.
