The Arabic gum that we provide meets all the
nutraceutical benefits of Arabic gum along with the advantages of
a product of the highest quality and purity.
Gum Arabic is an edible, dried, gummy exudate from the stems and branches of Acacia senegal and A. seyal which is rich in non-viscous soluble fiber.
Chemically, Gum Arabic (GA) is a complex polysaccharide, primarily indigestible to both humans and animals, not degraded in the small intestine, but fermented in the colon under the influence of microorganisms.
GA has wide industrial uses as stabilizer, thickening agent and emulsifier, mainly in the food industry. GA is used widely in food industry as a stabilizer, a thickener and/or an emulsifier agent. Also, GA is employed in a variety of products including gum, chocolates, and sweets. In these products, GA performs two important functions: to delay or to prevent sugar crystallization, and to emulsify fat to keep it evenly distributed throughout the product.
GA is extensively used in the baking industry due to its low moisture absorption properties. GA solubility in cold water allows greater formation of clear solutions than in sugar solutions. It also has favorable adhesive properties to be used in glace and meringues, also providing softness when used as an emulsion stabilizer. Baking properties of wheat and rye flours can be improved by adding a small amount of GA thanks to its capacity for retaining moisture, hence, reducing bread hardening. Furthermore, GA is a stabilizer in frozen products such as ice cream, due its water absorption properties. In these products, GA improves fine texture and inhibits the formation of ice crystals. In beverages, GA is an emulsifier in citrus juices, beer, and other beverages.
Now, The Green Labs LLC is pleased to offer the best selection of Organic Gum Arabic processed in our industrial plant in Sudan.
