So, what is locust bean gum?

Locust bean gum, also known as carob gum, is a natural food ingredient derived from the endosperm of the seeds of the carob tree. It is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in a wide range of food products, including dairy products, baked goods, and sauces. Locust bean gum has a neutral taste and odor, making it a versatile ingredient that does not affect the flavor of the food it is added to. Additionally, it is known for its high viscosity and water-binding properties, which help to improve the texture and consistency of food products. With its natural origin and functional properties, locust bean gum has become a popular ingredient in the food industry.
