So, what is goma de garrofin?

Goma de garrofin, also known as carob gum, is a natural food ingredient extracted from the seeds of the carob tree. This versatile emulsifier and thickener is commonly used in the food industry as a stabilizer for dairy products, sauces, dressings, and baked goods. With its high viscosity and creamy texture, goma de garrofin provides a smooth mouthfeel and enhances the shelf life of food products. It is an excellent alternative to other gums like xanthan gum or guar gum due to its neutral flavor, low-calorie content, and healthy properties that promote digestive health.
