Acacia Gum Powder

Quote required for this item
Acacia gum, also known as gum arabic, is derived from various species of Acacia trees, predominantly Acacia senegal and Acacia seyal. These trees are native to the arid regions of Africa, particularly Sudan and Senegal. Acacia gum is a natural exudate that forms when the bark of the tree is wounded. Acacia gum is composed of complex polysaccharides and glycoproteins, which give it adhesive and emulsifying properties. It is commonly used as a stabilizer, thickening agent, and dietary fiber in the food and beverage industry. Additionally, it finds applications in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and textile industries due to its ability to form stable emulsions, bind ingredients, and provide a glossy texture.
