Our Swiss-based factory is a world-leading expert in the production of Locust Bean gum (LBG), which is used for its thickening and stabilizing properties. We manufacture a range of high-quality LBG for a large array of applications.


Sourced from carefully selected carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua L.) grown in the Mediterranean area, locust bean gum is a natural texturizer. Once picked, the carob pods are separated from the seeds, which are then transformed to locust bean gum, using purely physical and natural processes.
