Acacia gum, commonly called gum arabic, is derived from certain kinds of acacia trees: Senegalia senegal and Vachellia seyal.

Sap is extracted from acacia trees by cutting incisions in their bark that allow the liquid to seep out. After that, the sap turns into gum.

Its distinct qualities and water solubility make it useful across a range of sectors, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, and personal care industries.

It is an ingredient in processed meals, soft drinks and confections, a thickening agent in chewing gums, a binder in watercolour paints, as additive in ceramic glazes and an adhesive in the rolling papers used in cigarettes.

It is a well-known emulsifier, an additive which helps two liquids mix. It’s also used in textiles and medicines

What are its uses?
In the Sahel, gum arabic has been used for centuries to stabilise and thicken food. It’s also used medicinally to soothe sore throats and help with digestive problems.

Since the industrial revolution, the gum has been used on an industrial scale:

In the food and beverages sector, gum arabic serves as an emulsifier and stabiliser. It is frequently used to improve texture and mouthfeel, and to avoid crystallisation in processed foods, soft drinks and confectionery.

In pharmaceuticals, it is used to encapsulate pills, make solutions and bind tablets.

In textiles it is used to fix colours in printing and dyeing.

In photography and painting it is used as a coating for light-sensitive items and as a binder for paints.
