Locust Bean Gum Production Cost Reports

Food and Beverages

Locust bean gum (LBG), which is better known as carob gum, carob bean gum, or simply just carobin, is a galactomannan vegetable gum that is derived from the seeds of the carob tree and utilised as a thickening agent or a gelling agent in food technology. Locust bean gum powder is utilised in pet foods as well as in inedible products like mining products, paper making, and to thicken textiles. It is utilised in cosmetics and enhances the flavour of cigarettes. Shoe polish, as well as certain insecticides, also have locust bean gum powder as an additive.

The seeds contained within the long pods, which grow on the tree, are utilised to make this gum. Firstly, the pods are kibbled to remove the seed from the pulp. Then, the seeds have their skins separated by an acid treatment. The deskinned seed is then split and gently milled. This enables the brittle germ to break while not affecting the more robust endosperm. The two are separated by sieving. The separated endosperm is then milled by a roller operation to make the final locust bean gum powder.
