The trees of Acacia senegal grow under extreme climatic conditions in Eastern Africa and the Gum Arabic exudate is collected naturally from the stem of the tree. The exudate hardens into the Gum Arabic and Nagaad Resins and Gums, in collaboration with the local communities, harvests the gum for further processing and sales.
The Gum Arabic from Acacia senegal is a superior product and being edible and soluble in water it is used primarily as a stabilizer in the food industry. The gum also has a wide range of industrial applications such as use in the production of paints, inks, cosmetics, glue, and viscosity control in textile industries.
Acacia senegal is also highly valued for its medicinal properties and used to predict blood serum, reduce cholesterol in blood, protect against heart diseases, reduce gut inflammations, and is even used as an analgesic.
Acacia Fiber is the rich and soluble powder made from 100% pure and organic Acacia Gum or Gum Arabic, from the tree of Acacia Senegal, which is native to Eastern Africa. This is nature’s own 100% pure and Wildly Organic Prebiotic. The powder can be stirred into water and consumed as a beverage, mixed with smoothies or other drinks, or even sprinkled over food.
