So, what is goma de arábiga?

Goma de arábiga, also known as gum arabic, is a natural ingredient derived from the sap of the acacia tree. It has been used for centuries in food and beverage production due to its unique properties, which include emulsification, thickening, and stabilization. Goma de arábiga is commonly found in soft drinks, candies, and baked goods, as well as in some non-food applications such as pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It is prized by food manufacturers for its ability to improve the texture and appearance of products while also enhancing their shelf life. In addition, goma de arábiga is considered safe and non-toxic, making it a popular choice for health-conscious consumers.
