Locust Bean Gum (E-410)

LOCUST BEAN GUM

Locust Bean Gum (LBG) is a natural hydrocolloid extracted from locust tree seeds. 

Manufacturing

The endosperm of carob seeds are separated from germ and testa by various processes then ground to locust bean gum.

Functionality

LBG imparts smooth flow properties, freeze- thaw stability and appropriate thickening to a wide range of products. It also improves gel strength when used in combination with K-Carrageenan. INCOM Locust Bean Gum provides brightness high viscosity the whitest coloured and highest gel strength. 

Solubility

LBG dissolves completely above 75 C.

Usage level : 0.1 – 0.9 %

We mainly produce the following LBG grades ;

Food Grade

LBG A-01 (2800 – 3000 cps): Top grade LBG suitable for the products where high viscosity and whiteness are important

LBG A-02 (2400 – 2600 cps): Medium grade LBG suitable for the products where high viscosity is not very important

LBG A-03 (2000 – 2200 cps): Standard grade LBG suitable for the products where both high viscosity and whiteness are not very important
