Locust Bean is soluble cold, but dissolves easier using hot liquids. It can be used to increase the viscosity, thickness and texture of liquids or to produce heat stable gels depending on the dosage.

The pH solubility of Locust Bean Gum is 2.5 – 10 so it can be used with acidic liquids and is not sensitive to high salt concentrations. These qualities make it a highly versatile stabiliser, texture improver, thickener and gelling agent.

  • Increase the viscosity and thickness of liquids
  • Use to create fluid heat stable gels
  • Add to frozen products to prevent ice crystals forming and to improve the texture
  • A small amount added to a recipe can prevent the leeching of liquids
  • Creates an extremely stretchy gel when blended with Xanthan Gum

How to use: Dosage Rates: 3 – 11 grams per kg. Add Locust Bean Gum gradually to your liquid / solution whilst stirring vigorously. Locust Bean is soluble cold but dissolves easier in hot liquids and will provide the highest viscosity when heated above 60°C.
