So, what is gomma arabica?

Gum arabic, also known as acacia gum or gomma arabica, is a natural plant-based ingredient that comes from the sap of acacia trees. It is commonly used in food and beverage production as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier. Gum arabic has a neutral taste and odor, making it a versatile ingredient for a wide range of applications. Additionally, it is soluble in water and forms a clear solution, making it ideal for use in beverages and other liquid products. Gum arabic is also known for its potential health benefits, including prebiotic effects and cholesterol-lowering properties.
