What is Locust Bean gum ?

what are the uses of locust bean gum ?

Locust Bean Gum is extracted from the seeds of the carob tree. Locust bean gum is a fine white powder with many uses in food production. The gum is mildly sweet and has a subtle chocolate taste. However, it’s used in such small amounts that it does not affect the flavour of the products it’s added to. Locust bean gum is made of an indigestible fibre called galactomannan polysaccharides, which have a long, chain-like molecular structure. These polysaccharides give the gum its unique ability to turn into a gel in liquid and thicken foods. It’s most commonly used as a thickener in food production, particularly in natural or organic foods that are free of highly refined ingredients.

Is it vegan?
Despite its misleading name, locust bean gum is a vegan product that has nothing to do with locusts, a type of grasshopper. The gum comes from the seeds of the carob tree, which is also known as the locust tree, as its pods resemble the insect of the same name. Locust bean gum is appropriate for vegan diets. In fact, it’s an excellent plant-based thickener that can help add structure and stability to vegan desserts, such as non-dairy ice cream and yogurt.
