    Gum Arabic

    What is Gum Arabic? ​

    Gum Arabic is a dried exudate obtained primarily from Acacia tree (Senegal), Willdenow var. Senegal (known as ‘hashab’ or ‘kordofan’). The tree sources for Gum Arabic grow in the gum belt of Africa, which stretches from Senegal in the west to Somalia in the east. Gum Arabic from A. Senegal is a pale to orange-brown-coloured solid that breaks with a glassy fracture (see photo below). For this reason, it is also known as hard gum, whereas A. seyal is known as flaky gum.

    The gum consists of a mixture of arabinogalactan oligosaccharides, polysaccharides and glycoproteins. Gum Arabic is very soluble in water (it dissolves easily) and only thickens the liquid a little bit.
    The following classification is used for Gum Arabic:

    Harmonised System (HS): 130120
    E-number: E414

    Organic products are ideal for your landscape, because they feed the soil, creating a sustainable environment. Healthy soil leads to healthy plants.1 But when you garden organically, you do much more than nourish your plants.

     

    As in nature, an organic soil alive with microbes and fungi releases nutrients slowly to plants. By enriching the soil with organic supplements and encouraging the growth of naturally occurring beneficial organisms, you give your plants the tools they need to access nutrients in the soil and the strength to protect themselves from harmful pathogens and pests.
