Whether farmer, blender, distributor or industry executive, our goal is always the same.
The majority of Guar is grown for its endosperm. Historically, it is approximately 45% protein, with the endosperm being 30%, and 25% hull. Guar seed endosperm is a source of water soluble gum, which is utilized as a stabilizer, emulsifier and thickener in various food products.
Apart from the food, animal feed, pet food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, guar extracts play an important role in the petrochemical, textile, paper production, mining and construction industries.
The bean obtained from the guar plant is rich in nutrients that support human and animal health. Although its commercial production in the United States did not begin until the early 1950s and has been concentrated in Texas and southwestern Oklahoma, this drought-tolerant annual legume was first brought into the United States from the western and north western parts of India back in 1903.
The origins of Guar cultivation can be traced back to the dry climate of Rajasthan, the Indian state that supplies the largest percentage of guar (70%) for worldwide industries.
The United States has produced 4,600 to 14,000 tons of guar over the last 5 years mainly from Guar beans grown in Texas. Since 1999, Texas acreage has fluctuated from about 7,000 to 80,000 acres. The world production for guar gum and its derivatives is about 3.7.0 million tons. Non-food guar gum accounts for about 40% of the total demand. India exports guar gum to more than 100 countries around the world. Around half is shipped to the United States.

The Corona Virus pandemic exposed the weaknesses of being fully dependent upon importation for a vast array of essential raw materials. Guar Resources and our dedicated US-based team is your safety valve to avoid serious vulnerabilities on the smooth flow of your production capabilities when unforeseen circumstances arise, and they could again in the future.
Quite simply, we are the only company that grows guar beans and processes them into powder in the United States. Guar purchased from GR is 100% natural, gluten free and vegan, and is kosher, halal and Non GMO and is planted, grown, split and turned to powder in the United States. This is enormously advantageous in securing the quality, reliability and service that a US manufacturer can offer.
If you want USDA organic certified guar for food applications, we are the only true source within the United States. While others may say the provide USDA certified guar, in reality they import splits from India or other foreign sources and then grind the splits here in the U.S. to make what they “claim” to be USDA organic, but it’s not true USDA approved product — ours is. Guar Resources grows, splits and grinds every bean in America. Our guar is truly “bean to powder” USDA organic certified!
This aspect can easily affect negatively costs and cash flow. The fact that this is mandatory without the buyer having any way of knowing the quality of the guar gum powder being shipped or when it will arrive, only adds to buyer anxiety. Timing and recourse capabilities are critical for smooth operations.
Guar Resources has no such stipulation, and buyers can be comfortable knowing that delivery will be well within any deadline for planting.
Payment of duty is required when the imported goods leave the warehouse for consumption in the United States. The law establishes the timespan for how long goods may remain without acquiring any interest obligation and with interest risk. This is why Guar Resources is the best possible reasonably priced source of guar gum powder for American blenders and manufacturers.
This is hardly door to door convenience for busy buyers of guar gum powder! Most consumer goods are delivered from a point of production (such as a factory) via one or more points of storage (warehouses) to a point of sale (such as retail stores or manufacturing site), where the consumer buys the goods and is responsible for their transportation to the point of consumption.
Guar Resources is located in the United States which allows for more predictable transportation costs from the plant to delivery to your business.
Import tariffs, which are also known as customs, import duties and import fees levied against products imported into one country from another cut into profit margins.
The value of a reliable supply chain in large part depends upon the cost of goods sold (COGS) within that network. The value of the COGS is negatively affected by the number of intermediaries involved. When guar powder users purchase guar gum powder from Guar Resources – the US domestic manufacturer of the guar, they are assured to eliminate numerous intermediaries involved in imported guar and that prices will remain stable within the supply chain.
While this is truly outrageous, screams of unfair business practices cannot be defended on any terms, it is also the unvarnished truth when consumers order from overseas suppliers of guar gum powder. For American farmers and business owners, buying from their own country is not only patriotic, but also the safest way to protect their investment.
In addition, Guar Resources will purchase 100% of the US grown beans contracted with GR farmers who are never liable for a lack of production resulting from any act of God, such as flood, hail, drought etc. We stand behind both our product and our promise to utilize our industrial expertise and state-of-the-art technology to produce the highest quality guar gum powder possible.
