So, what is goma garrofí?

Goma garrofí, also known as carob gum or locust bean gum, is a natural food thickener and stabilizer derived from the seeds of the carob tree. It is commonly used in the food industry as a substitute for other thickeners like cornstarch or xanthan gum, due to its superior ability to stabilize and emulsify. Goma garrofí has a neutral flavor and is often added to dairy products, salad dressings, and baked goods to improve texture and shelf life. This versatile ingredient is also gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO, making it an excellent choice for those with dietary restrictions.
