So, what is carob gum?

Carob gum, also known as locust bean gum, is a natural food additive derived from the seeds of the carob tree. It is a thickening agent and stabilizer commonly used in the food industry to improve the texture and consistency of various products such as ice cream, yogurt, and sauces. Carob gum is a popular alternative to other thickeners such as cornstarch and gelatin, as it is vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and has a neutral flavor. It is also known for its high fiber content, which can help promote healthy digestion. Carob gum is a versatile ingredient that can enhance the quality of many food products while providing health benefits.
