About Acacia Senegal Gum
Acacia Senegal – Gum Arabic
The Acacia Senegal tree actively produces raw gum, known as Gum Hashab, recognized for its superior quality due to its clearer appearance resulting from fewer impurities and tannins when dissolved. Gum Hashab displays greater resilience compared to Gum Talha. This gum is 100% Wildly Organic and Wildly Harvested.
Local communities actively harvest this natural gum from wild Acacia Senegal trees in Somalia. It is indeed the superior form of gum Arabic.
These trees actively grow in Eastern Africa under extreme climatic conditions, and the exudate naturally hardens into Gum Arabic. Nagaad Resins and Gums, in active collaboration with local communities, harvest it for further processing and sales.
Gum Arabic from Acacia Senegal is a premium product primarily utilized as a stabilizer in the food industry, owing to its edibility and water solubility. It also finds active application in various industries, including paint, ink, cosmetics, glue production, and viscosity control in textile manufacturing.
Furthermore, Acacia Senegal is highly valued for its medicinal properties, actively employed for predicting blood serum, reducing blood cholesterol, protecting against heart diseases, alleviating gut inflammations, and serving as an analgesic.
This product is actively certified as free from contaminants by our laboratory facilities and is 100% organic, thanks to the natural and wild growth of these trees.
