Where can you buy carob flour?

Buying pure carob is possible on our site. But what exactly is carob bean gum? Locust bean gum is a white to yellowish-white, almost odourless powder obtained by grinding the germinating seeds of the carob tree (ceratonia siliqua). This species is mainly found in the Mediterranean region. The carob tree grows up to 15 metres high. The crown is broad and semi-spherical. The crown is supported by a thick trunk with rough brown bark and sturdy branches. The carob tree is cultivated on a large scale, but also still grows wild in eastern Mediterranean areas. Carob trees can survive long periods of drought, but to grow fruit for the pith they need 500 to 550 millimetres of rain per year.

When to use carob seed meal?

When to use carob bean gum? It is used as a thickener in the food industry. Is locust bean gum dangerous? Certainly not, carob bean gum gluten free is often used in baby food.

Other uses for locust bean gum:

Carob bean gum side effects

Is it normal that babies get cramps from locust bean gum? Intestinal cramps, also known as colic, although very annoying, are quite normal for babies. The thickening of the milk can make it harder for the nutrition from the milk to be absorbed by the intestines, which can lead to intestinal cramps. This contraction of the intestinal wall often occurs during or after feeding and can be very annoying for your little one. By taking the time to bottle-feed, you can improve intestinal problems. You should also prevent too much air getting into the bottle by keeping the nipple filled at all times. It is also advisable to let your baby burp so that any excess air can escape and not build up in the intestines as a side effect.

Ik heb een baby en kan hem geen borst voeding meer geven. Hij vindt het heerlijk om johannesbroodpitmeel te mengen met melk voor baby's het is ook erg gezond voor hem, het is biologisch en er zitten veel voedingsstoffen in.
