Locust bean gum

Камедь рожкового дерева

Locust bean gum is obtained from the seeds of the carob tree.

It acts as a thickener and a stabilizer, a weak gelling agent and an encapsulating agent. When mixed with xanthan, carrageenan, gellan, agar or alginate, the gelling power of locust bean gum is noticeably increased.

Its effect is independent of acids, salts and heating.

It is recommended to use locust bean gum either separately or in combination with other thickening and stabilizing agents (xanthan gum, guar gum, carrageenan, etc.) as part of complex stabilizers.


Yellowish white powder, almost odorless, slightly hygroscopic.
