Our Arabic gum powder is produced from pulverized raw Arabic gum resins. It is dissolved in hot water and then filtered before spray dried into powder. It does not contain any binder or filler therefore its emulsifying properties are strong. It can be used in products with low pH. It is also relatively easy to dissolve in water due to its big particle size to form a viscous solution with no sediment.

Arabic gum, also known as acacia gum, acacia, Senegal gum, Indian gum etc, is a natural gum consisting of the hardened sap of two species of the acacia tree, namely Senegalia senegal and Vachellia seyal.

The Arabic gum is harvested from Sudan, Senegal and Somalia. Arabic gum is a combination of glycoproteins and polysaccharides, mainly arabinose and galactose. Arabic gum has a unique emulsifying property, which can efficiently stabilize a food system, and contribute to a superior texture and a good mouthfeel. In pastries, it is typically used in fillings or frosting to emulsify the fat/water interfaces. It is traditionally used on gingerbread products to give a glossy and tacky shine. When used in making gluten-free bread, it improves the softness of bread by 25% and extends commercial product shelf life by 50%.

Arabic gum is high in fiber with 90% soluble fiber in dry extract and is a natural prebiotic for gut health. It is not degraded and will be fermented into some short-chain fatty acids (SCFA). This SCFA is regarded as a prebiotic that enhances the growth and proliferation of good bacteria and thus it is associated with many health effects. By boosting the growth of the good bacteria, the gut barrier grows stronger, preventing it from being leaky.

Arabic gum can delay digestion by absorbing water from the stomach and the intestinal tract to form a gel. This gel gives a satiety feeling and prevents cravings in between meals. The fiber can decelerate glucose absorption. Intake of Arabic gum can help in weight management by reducing both body fat percentage and BMI.

Arabic gum is rich in dietary fiber and it is effective in controlling body sugar levels. A good control of body glucose level indirectly protects renal functions.

Arabic Natural gum powder has a sticky texture which can help soothe a sore throat and dry cough. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties that prevent swelling, voice loss, and bacterial infection in the throat. It has been used as a traditional elixir for these problems.
