Gum Arabic (Acacia Gum )

 07fdfb2c05a9909255bfceed21ebb609-212x300Gum arabic, also known as acacia gum, is a natural gum consisting of the hardened sap of various species of the acacia tree.

Gum arabic is used primarily in the food industry as a stabilizer. It is edible and has E number E414. Gum arabic is a key ingredient in traditional lithography and is used in printing, paint production, glue, cosmetics and various industrial applications, including viscosity control in inks and in textile industries, though less expensive materials compete with it for many of these roles.

 For example, Arab populations use the natural gum to make a chilled, sweetened, and flavored gelato-like dessert.
