ABOUT THE GUM ARABIC :

Gum Arabic was known as an article of commerce since the year 4,000 B.C. and was widely used in Egypt during the Pharaoh's Civilization in the preparation of Ink, Water Colors and Dyes. The name "GUM ARABIC" was derived from the fact that it was shipped to Europe from Arabian Ports in the old days, Gum ARABIC is therefore long established in the World's Markets.

Gum Arabic is the natural gummy exuded obtained by tapping the branches of the Acacia Senegal tree and its closely related species. Gum ARABIC "HASHAB" is prized for its outstanding and highly uniform characteristics such as excellent solubility, pale color and superb emulsifying and film- forming properties.

Gum Arabic is used in sweeteners and as a food, beverage and drink additive, a liquid or drink thickener, in cake and pastry preparation, and in food flavorings. Gum Arabic is used to manufacture pharmaceutical capsules, to coat pills, and it is used to manufacture vitamins, lotions, mascara, cake makeup, and so on.
