Acacia Gum

Acacia gum, also known as Gum Arabic is produced from the sap of the Acacia tree and is widely used in the food and beverage industries for its functional properties such as:

  • Emulsifier for oil in water emulsions
  • Carrier for Encapsulation
  • Stabiliser
  • Binder

Acacia gum has comparatively low viscosity and its function is based primarily on its properties as a protective colloid or emulsifier.

Acacia gum is used extensively in the confectionary industry for its ability to prevent crystallization of sugar and as a glaze for chewing gum and cough drops.

The baking industry uses acacia gum for adhesion properties for glazes and toppings whilst the beverage industry utilises acacia's stabilising properties to maintain foam heads on beers.

We can source acacia gum to order from a leading manufacturer thus we are able to offer a diverse range of high quality products to meet your specific area of application.
