guar gum has a coating action on the skin that allows for moisture retention. often used as a thickener and emulsifier in cosmetic formulations, guar gum is a polysaccharide found in the seeds of the guar plant. It is the nutrient material required by the developing plant embryo during germination. When the endosperm, once separated from the hull and embryo, is ground to a powder form, it is marketed as guar gum. Guar gum is obtained from the seed kernel of the plant cyamopsis tetragonoloba. It has a mannose:galactose ratio of approximately 2:1. It is dispersible in cold water to form viscous sols which upon heating will develop additional viscosity. A 1% solution has a viscosity range of 2,000–3,500 cp at 25°c. It is a versatile thickener and stabilizer used in ice cream, baked goods, sauces, and beverages at use levels ranging from 0.1 to 1.0%. It is scientifically termed guaran. low calorie, soluble dietery fiber In paper sizing; as a protective colloid, stabilizer, thickening and film forming agent for cheese, salad dressings, ice cream, soups; as a binding and disintegrating agent in tablet formulations; in pharmaceutical jelly formulations; in suspensions, emulsions, lotions, creams, toothpastes; in the mining industry as a flocculant, as a filtering agent; in water treatment as a coagulant aid.

Gellan Gum

Biochemical research. Gelling agent. Phytagel is a kind of agar substitute secreted from Pseudomonas. It is a mixture of glucuronic acid, rhamnose and glucose. It has the characteristics of colorlessness, transparency and high toughness. It is a plant tissue culture medium and microorganism. The main component of the culture medium. Because it overcomes the inherent defects of traditional agar in plant tissue culture, it brings a new revolution to botanical research and has become an internationally recognized product for plant tissue culture.

Bulking agent for reduced calorie foods. Polydextrose is a bulking agent that is a randomly bonded conden- sation polymer of dextrose containing small amounts of bound sor- bitol and citric acid. it is a water-soluble powder providing a ph range of 2.5–3.5. it is partially metabolized which results in a caloric value of 1 cal/g. as a reduced-calorie bulking agent, it can partially replace sugars and in some cases fats in reduced-calorie foods. it also functions as a bodying agent and humectant. applications include desserts, specific baked goods, frozen dairy desserts, chewing gum, and candy. usage levels vary according to application, but examples are frozen dessert, 13–14%; puddings, 8–9%; and cake, 15–16%.

Arabic Gum

A gum obtained from breaks or wounds in the bark of acacia trees. It dissolves in hot or cold water forming clear solutions which can be up to 50% gum acacia. The solubility in water increases with temperature. It is used in confectionary glazes to retard or prevent sugar crystallization and acts as an emulsifier to prevent fat from forming an oxidizable, greasy film. It functions as a flavor fixative in spray-drying to form a thin film around the flavor particle. It also functions as an emulsifier in flavor emulsions, as a cloud agent in beverages, and as a form stabilizer. It is also termed acacia. As mucilage, excipient for tablets, size, emulsifier, thickener, also in candy, other foods; as colloidal stabilizer. In the manufacture of spray-dried "fixed" flavorsstable, powdered flavors used in packaged dry-mix products (puddings, desserts, cake mixes) where flavor stability and long shelf life are important. acacia (Acacia senegal)(acacia gum; black catechu; gum acacia; gum Arabic) is commonly used in traditional remedies as a soothing and anti-inflammatory agent. It is also used as a vegetable gum for product thickening. In extract form, acacia is recommended for dry, sensitive, or delicate skin. Acacia is the dried gummy sap from the stems and branches of various species of the African acacia tree. It may cause skin rashes in cases of allergy.

Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose

As emulsifier, film former, protective colloid, stabilizer, suspending agent, or thickener in foods.Pharmaceutic aid (suspending agent; tablet excipient; demulcent; viscosity increasing agent); hydrophilic carrier in drug delivery systems.In adhesives, asphalt emulsions, caulking compounds, tile mortars, plastic mixes, cements, paints.
Food thickeners generally refer to macromolecular substances that can be dissolved in water and fully hydrated under certain conditions to form a thick, greasy solution, also known as food glue. It is an important class of food additives that are widely used in the food industry and are used as gelling agents. According to its source, it can be roughly divided into four categories: thickeners made from plant exudate; thickeners made from plant seeds and seaweed; thickeners made from animal raw materials containing protein; natural Substance-based semi-synthetic thickener. "Thickener" on Echemi mainly supplies raw materials for food thickeners.
