Guar Splits



Guar Splits

Guar known as cluster bean (Cyamopsis tetragonolobus (L.) Taub), a drought hardy leguminous crop. Guar is being grown for seed, green fodder, vegetable and green manuring. It is an annual plant, about 4 feet high, vertically stalked, with large leaves and clusters of pods. Each pod is about 5-8 cm long and has on an average 6-9 small grayish-white pea shaped seeds. The pods are used as a green vegetable or as a cattle feed besides the industrial extraction of guar gum. Guar grows best in sandy soils. It needs moderate, intermittent rainfall with lots of sunshine. The crop is sown after the first rains in July and harvested in October-November. It is a short duration crop and is harvested within 3-4 months of its plantation. Guar is a rain dependent crop; rainfall influences the yield of the crop. Its seed consists of seed coat, endosperm and germ. It has attained an important place in industry because of its galactomannan rich endosperm (splits).

Processing of Guar Seeds to make Guar Splits

The gum is commercially extracted from the seeds essentially by a mechanical process of roasting, differential attrition, sieving and polishing. The seeds are broken and the germ is separated from the endosperm. Two halves of the endosperm are obtained from each seed and are known as undehusked guar splits. When the fine layer of fibrous material, which forms the husk, is removed and separated from the endosperm halves by polishing, guar splits are obtained . During the split manufacturing process husk and germ are obtained. Both this are used as a valuable cattle feed as they are quite rich in protein known as Guar Meal
