Locust bean gum range extended

Supplier News

DANISCO has added more high quality products to its locust bean market range.

The new products come from the integration of Rhodia Foods’ activities in the Danisco organisation.

A top locust bean gum supplier in its own right, the former Rhodia subsidiary has supplemented Danisco’s already extensive knowledge of the functional ingredient and its application.

The gum is produced at two sophisticated plants in Spain and Portugal, where carob trees provide the seeds from which the hydrocolloid is derived.

Manufacturers of dairy products, such as cream cheese, benefit in particular from locust bean gum that is free of black specks.

Locust bean gum provides unique functionality in a range of food products – stabilising ice cream and frozen desserts, giving cream cheese the required viscosity and syneresis control and working with other hydrocolloids to add gel strength and texture to fruit preparations.
