Refined Locust Bean Gum

It’s remarkable what we can find in nature! Locust bean gum comes from carob tree seeds. Our refined locust bean gum is highly refined and purified and reflects our passion for quality and consistency. The processing steps include a series of crushing, sifting and grinding, as well as dissolution, filtration, precipitation in alcohol, dying and milling.
