Carob bean is the seed of the carob tree. It is incredibly high in hydrocolloid polysaccharides, which gives it excellent water binding properties.
When combining plain skyr with fruit you get great flavor, but it is sometimes difficult to get the same good texture that the plain skyr has on its own. To help this we add a little bit of powdered carob bean, in some of our varieties. This makes sure the product doesn’t separate. We chose carob bean, because it can be sourced organically and is a clean and simple ingredient. Essentially it is just a finely milled seed, and therefor much less processed than e.g. pectin or carrageenan, which undergo severe chemical processing.
