Locust Bean Gum
The vegetable polysaccharide
Locust Bean Gum (LBG) is widely used in the food industry as a binding agent or stabilizer and has many applications.
Locust bean gum is made from the seeds of the carob tree, found only in Mediterranean countries. It is a thickening agent that improves the mouthfeel of your product and prevents a granular structure.
Our Swiss hydocolloid expert Unipektin source directly the locust bean gum pods from the growers and only uses the endosperm to produce the high quality locust bean gum with neutral taste and colouring. The Locust bean gum has a cold and hot viscosity (range 500-3000 Mpas). The Locust Bean gum can be used in many applications for viscosity, stabilization, more creaminess and better mouthfeel.
