In India the commercial production of Guar gum is normally undertaken by using process of roasting, differential attrition, sieving & polishing.

The Guar seeds are broken in two halves and the endosperm & germ is separated from the endosperm by sieving. The husk is separated from the endosperm halves through heating, grinding & polishing & the refined Guar Gum split are obtained.

The refined Guar split are then treated and converted into powder through grinding process. There are various processing techniques of conversion depending upon the required end product.

During the split manufacturing process, husk & germ are obtained. These are used as a valuable cattle feed as they are rich in protein. These are widely sold in the international market as “Guar Meal” & have contents of “Oil & Albuminoids” (O & A ). The O & A contents are about 50% in germ whereas it is about 25% in husks.
