Every time you drink a soda, swallow a capsule, enjoy a jelly bean or lick a postage stamp, you’re ingesting an almost ubiquitous ingredient: Gum Acacia.
Gum Acacia is a natural gum made of hardened sap taken from two species of the Acacia tree:
- Acacia Senegal
- Acacia Seyal
The gum is harvested from wild trees throughout the Sahel from Senegal and Sudan to Somalia. It is one of the world’s most-common gums and can boast the longest history. Our team enjoys decades of experience sourcing and processing gum Acacia.
