Locust Bean Gum (E-410)

Locust Bean Gum (E-410)

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
