✅ SOURCE – Locust Bean Gum (Carob Gum) is a pure vegetable ingredient extracted from the locust bean (or carob tree). To prepare, the bean skin is removed, and then the bean is crushed and milled into an off-white powder known as locust bean gum.
✅ WORKS SYNERGISTICALLY – Locust Bean Gum (Carob Gum) enhances the effects of other colloid gums such as carrageenan, carrageenan, methylcellulose, konjac, or xanthan gum.

Locust Bean Gum (Carob Gum) also referred to as Carob Bean Gum, as it comes from the carob tree (Ceratonia silisqua) of the family Leguminous. The gum itself is derived from the ground endosperm of the seeds contained in the pod-shaped fruit of the tree. Like guar gum and gellan gum, locust bean gum is added to various food products, including yogurt, cream cheese, and ice cream.  It is similar in composition to Guar Gum. This galactomannan polysaccharide can is used in applications where clarity is not essential. The main difference between Guar Gum and Locust Bean Gum is the need for Locust Bean Gum (Carob Gum) to be dispersed in hot water and allowed to cool to achieve its whole viscosity.

Locust Bean Gum (Carob Gum) creates a stable viscosity over a wide range of pH levels with resistance to shear thinning. When combined with Carrageenan and Agar, Locust Bean Gum (Carob Gum) creates the synergistic effect of incorporating elasticity into these rigid gels.  From meats to cheeses, bakery products, and ice cream LBG adds a smooth texture, excellent water control, stability, and binding without masking taste or flavor.
