Galactomannans

Used in isolation, galactomannans act as guar gum and LBG (Locust Bean Gum), also known as jatai gum, locust gum or carob gum thicken and provide viscosity.  LBG is insoluble at room temperature and, contrary to guar gum, can form junction zones with xanthan gum and kappa-carrageen to form gel.
