Acacia Gum
Versatile use in the food and beverage industry

Acacia gum (E414) is extracted from the African acacia tree, considered a natural and healthy ingredient and has many applications in the food industry.

In the Senegal and Seyal qualities, acacia gum is used as an emulsifier and stabiliser in drinks such as soft drinks and beer, and is used in food production to improve texture and consistency or to increase the fibre content.

Karaya Gum
Binder with broad applicability

Karaya gum (E416) is used as a natural binding agent, primarily in the pharmaceutical industry for medicines and tablets. It is extracted from the resin of the Indian Sterculia tree, provides excellent adhesion and is known for its ability to bind moisture.

In food, karaya gum is primarily used as a thickening agent to achieve a desired consistency.
