So, what is gomme acacia?

Gomme acacia, also known as gum arabic, is a natural food ingredient derived from the hardened sap of the Acacia Senegal tree. It has been used for centuries in food and beverage applications due to its unique functional properties, including its ability to act as a stabilizer, thickener, and emulsifier. Gomme acacia is commonly used in the food industry as a coating for confectionery products, a binder for meat and bakery products, and as a base for soft drinks and syrups. In addition to its functional properties, gomme acacia is also valued for its prebiotic effects, which can promote digestive health.
