The Guar Gum Bubble

Guar gum pricing is about $7,000/ton, down from $27,000/ton back in May this year. 
Also, India normally sells 60% of its Guar to the oil industry and 40% to the food industry. But this year, the food industry has only bought 20% because of the high prices.

Our company has Guar gum alternatives: for both industrial (oil drilling industry, hydroseeding, carpet dying, leather tanning, explosives, cat litter) and food (bread, ice cream, yogurt, salad dressing, juices, wet pet food).
