Locust bean gum occurs as a white to yellow-white powder. It consists chiefly of high-molecular-weight hydro colloidal polysaccharides, composed of galactose and mannose units combined through glycosidic linkages, which may be described chemically as galactomannan. It is dispersible in either hot or cold water, forming a sol having a pH between 5.4 and 7.0, which may be converted to a gel by the addition of small amounts of sodium borate.LBG is used as a thickening agent and gelling agent in food technology.
