Sesbania gum is extracted from sesbania seeds. It is white colored, loose milky powder that is soluble in water and insoluble in alcohol, ketones, ethers and other organic solvents. Sesbania gum powder can be dispersed in cold water to form a viscous solution. The viscosity of sesbania gum powder is 5-10 times higher than natural plant gum, sodium alginate.
