Locust bean gum

Locust bean gum is a natural hydrocolloid extracted from seeds of the locust tree. It consists of a long chain of galactomannans with a high molecular weight, which provides high viscosity to the food product. It is used not only as a thickening agent in numerous applications but also providing synergies with other hydrocolloids as it is the case of carrageenan. The combination of these two hydrocolloids increases their gel forming capabilities. Ceamgum® product range provides high viscosity, transparency and brightness, which are the essential qualities for applications such as water desserts.
