So, what is goma de algarrobó?

Goma de algarrobó, also known as carob gum, is a natural food ingredient that comes from the seeds of the carob tree.

This versatile ingredient is often used as a vegan alternative to animal-derived gelatins and can be found in everything from ice cream and baked goods to sauces and dressings. With its unique properties and wide range of applications, goma de algarrobó is a valuable ingredient in modern food production.
