Our Locust Bean Gum is a premium quality refined powder and a totally natural product, extracted from the seeds of the Carob tree. A highly versatile Vegan friendly gelling agent, stabiliser and thickener, which is used mainly as a low concentration thickener. It can also be used in dairy products, desserts, fruit products, dressings and sauces. Locust Bean Gum is a natural binder and can be used instead of flour or egg yolks. Add to frozen products such as ice cream to delay the formation of ice crystals and improve texture, or, use with Xanthan Gum to produce stable elastic gels.

Alternatively known as Carob Gum and is extracted from the Carob tree by grinding the endosperm of its seeds. Its uses are as a thickener or stabilizer and possesses water-binding properties. It disperses in cold or hot water and dissolves at >85.0°C depending on the medium and the process. It can be used in aqueous dairy or fruit media with various total solids.

  • Use to create fluid heat stable gels
  • Add to frozen products to prevent ice crystals forming and to improve the texture
