Market Insights

Growing Awareness about Multi-Functionality of Gum Arabic

Gum arabic is used to treat various diseases. It improves patients' digestive systems and enhances appetite. Gum arabic is categorized as a nondigestible dietary fiber. It also exhibits a few medicinal benefits such as reducing dental plaque and wounds healing, which encourage the application of gum arabic in the pharmaceutical sector. Moreover, gum arabic (acacia Senegal) is a complex polysaccharide indigestible to both humans and animals. Gum arabic is also one of the most usually used foaming agents and emulsifier, drying agent, and stabilizer in various products. It is a natural plant-based hydrocolloid or plant or tree exudate composed of polysaccharide and Arabinogalactan protein (AGP) fractions. These give desirable amphiphilic (hydrophobic-hydrophilic) molecular characteristics and reliable emulsifying function to gum arabic. Gum arabic also has water-loving and water-hating components that work in tandem to create a mixture between components that generally don’t mix, such as oil and water or air and water. The functional properties of gum arabic mainly depend on its source, type, and molecular structure, especially the AGP fraction present in the gum.

Therefore, growing awareness regarding the multi-functionality, inclination for natural products in the food & beverage industry, and related medicinal benefits are likely to enhance the growth of the gum arabic market in the forecast period.
