Locust bean gum (LBG) is a galactomannan vegetable gum extracted from the seeds of the Carob tree. It forms a food reserve for the seeds and helps to retain water under arid conditions. Locust bean gum provides functionality in a range of food products - stabilising ice-cream and frozen desserts, giving cream cheese the required viscosity and syneresis control and working with other hydrocolloids to add gel strength and texture to fruit preparations.
It is used as a thickener and gelling agent in food technology. It is also called Carob Gum or Carubin.
