Gum Guar


In the pharmaceutical industry, gum guar is commonly used as a binder and thickener in the manufacture of solid oral dosage forms such as tablets and capsules. It is also used as a dispersant for poorly soluble drugs, a suspension agent for liquid formulations, and as an ingredient in controlled-release formulations. Gum guar is a natural, water-soluble polysaccharide derived from the seeds of the guar plant and is known for its ability to form gel-like structures in water. Its high viscosity and stability make it an ideal ingredient in various pharmaceutical applications.
