Locust Bean Gum
Locust bean (carob) trees (Ceratonia siliqua L.) are perennials which grow wild exclusively in the Mediterranean region. The fruits, the locust bean pods, are collected and threshed on the spot. The threshing process separates the carob seeds from the pods.
UNIPEKTIN obtains the seeds directly from the countries of origin and further processes them to locust bean gum using purely physical processes.
