Characterization of carob fruits (Ceratonia siliqua L.), cultivated in Spain for agroindustrial use



Characterization of carob fruits (Ceratonia siliqua L.), cultivated in Spain for agroindustrial use



International Tree Crops Journal 9(1): 1-9



A knowledge of the physical characteristics of the carob pod and kernels is of great importance in their industrial use - the kernels are use to prepare carob bean gum which is used in the food and pharmaceutical industries, and the pod pulp is used mainly for fodder but also as food and in the manufacture of sugars and alcohol.
