Galactomannan Assay Kit (K-GALM)
The kit can be used for any type of galactomannan. However, to calculate the galactomannan content, you will need to know the galactose/mannose ratio of ...

The Galactomannan Assay Kit (K-GALM) gives the galactose:mannose ratio for carob is there any similar data published for guar gum?
Yes, we did a lot of work on guar gum from numerous samples, and the value we obtained was 38% +/- 1% galactose (62 % mannose). The kit bo...

Can the Galactomannan Assay Kit (K-GALM) be used to measure Guar Gum or Guaran in baked products where the level of guar in the product is approximately 0.32%?
The Galactomannan Assay Kit measures guar and carob galactomannans. The method is based on hydrolysis of galactomannan to galactose and manno-oligosacc...

Can galactomannans be measured accurately using the Galactomannan Assay Kit (K-GALM), based on known mannose : galactose ratios and can this ratio vary between cultivar varieties?
Yes, we believe that it is possible to accurately measure the galactomannan content based on the known galactose/mannose ratio. In studies we performed...
