    How to Find and Use Locust Bean Gum

    Locust or carob bean gum isn’t as easy as guar gum to find. However, some speciality food stores as well as online resources do carry it. If you’re having trouble finding it online, searching for “carob bean gum” may be helpful. If you’re asking a salesperson, using both names can help as well.

    If you’re making homemade ice cream, the addition of locust bean gum is great at discouraging unwanted ice crystal formation. In sauces and salad dressings, it can makes an effective thickening agent. For gluten-free noodles and other gluten-free recipes, locust bean gum can provide that gelatinous element that’s lacking without gluten. Sometimes, carob bean gum is combined with guar gum to create an extra thick gel. It’s also combined with xanthan gum to create a thinner yet still stretchy gel.

    In gluten-free bread recipes, binding agents like xanthan, guar gum and locust bean gum can make effective substitutes for that intentionally missing ingredient (gluten). Using locust bean gum in gluten-free bread recipes has been shown to increase loaf height.
