Aqueous guar gum dispersions have a buffering action and are
stable at pH 4.0–10.5. However, prolonged heating reduces the
viscosity of dispersions.
The bacteriological stability of guar gum dispersions may be improved by the addition of a mixture of 0.15% methylparaben and 0.02% propylparaben as a preservative. In food applications, benzoic acid, citric acid, sodium benzoate, or sorbic acid may be used.
Guar gum powder should be stored in a well-closed container in a cool, dry place.
