Carob agroforestry industry: an assessment of its potential for the low-medium rainfall Murray Valley region
This paper reports the key findings of a study examining the potential viability of a carob agroforestry industry in the low rainfall Murray Valley region. The carob fruit; typically produced on female and hermaphrodite trees older than 6 years, is valued for a range of products derived from the seed and pod. From the seeds, the endosperm is extracted for a galactomannan, which forms an edible gum (termed 'carob bean gum' or 'locust bean gum') and has become a valuable natural food additive....[Show more]
