Guar gum is a unique agrochemical processed from endosperm of cluster bean. It is mainly used in the form of guar gum powder as an additive in food, pharmaceuticals, paper, textile, explosive and oil well drilling and cosmetics industry. Industrial applications of guar gum are likely because of its capability to form hydrogen bonding with water molecule. Accordingly, it is primarily used as thickener and stabilizer. It is also useful in the control of various health problems like diabetes, bowel movements, heart disease and colon cancer.

By grade, industrial grade is attributed to its multi-functional properties and its huge operations in the oil & gas, mining & explosives, paper manufacturing, textile, tobacco, and photography with other industries. By application, In the Oil and Gas Industry, guar gum has been adopted for use by petrochemical companies for its thickening properties. These properties are used during drilling applications where huge viscosity water is required to extract oil and natural gas from shale rock formations.
