What is
Gum arabic?

80% of the world’s gum arabic is sourced from Sudan

Also known as acacia gum, Kordofan, meska, char good is a natural gum made of the hardened sap of various species of the acacia tree. Gum arabic is harvested from two types of wild Acacia trees, one is the Acacia Senegal tree and the other is Acacia Seyal.

This resin is obtained through special tappings made on the trunk of the tree. The resinous liquid which comes out of the tappings to heal the cuts on the bark, thickens on contact with the air, forming a hard and glassy gum. Gum arabic is edible and has E number E414 .
