Its green pods are used as a vegetable in some areas. It has assumed great industrial importance in recent years, mainly due to the presence of gum in its endosperm, which constitutes 35-40 per cent of the whole seed.Guar meal, a byproduct of guar gum industry is also of considerable value as it contains more than 42 per cent protein. Now-a-days, guar has emerged as a new industrial crop and is commercially grown in India, Pakistan and U.S.A and to some extent in Australia, South Africa and Brazil.
