    Ingredients

    Gum Locust Bean

    • HOW IT’S MADE – Locust bean gum is a vegetable gum extracted from the seeds of the carob tree, native to the Mediterranean. The seeds are inside of pods that grow on the tree, which are kibbled to separate the seeds. Acid treatment removes the skin off the seeds. The skinless seeds are subsequently split and crushed. This allows the germ and endosperm to separate via sieving. Once separate, the endosperm is milled again, this time by a roller which produces the final locust bean gum powder.
    • HOW TO USE – Locust bean gum requires synergy with another ingredient to be functional; agar, kappa carrageenan, methyl cellulose, konjac or xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is used to create elastic gels, agar or kappa carrageenan to give strength and elasticity, and guar gum to create a thicker gel.
    • ONE QUALITY INGREDIENT – Our Locust Bean Gum only has one ingredient: locust bean gum. This makes it so that you can be confident that there are no preservatives/additives or extra ingredients that you didn’t sign up for. Vegan and vegetarian friendly.
    • NATURALLY GLUTEN-FREE – Apart from being vegan and vegetarian friendly, locust bean gum is naturally gluten-free, making it an accessible ingredient for a wide range of diets.
