Brief introduction
Gum arabic is harvested from Acacia senegal because it has superior properties over other 'acacias', and hence it is this gum that has dominated international trade. Currently the biggest markets for A. senegal gum are the European Union, North America (mainly the USA) and the Indian Subcontinent (mainly India). The UK imported 1,253 tonnes in 1998. Sudan, Nigeria and Chad are the three biggest sources of this gum.

Gum arabic is traded in large quantities, and is grouped into three grades. Grade 1 (the best) is in large, round or worm-shaped pieces and is white/pale or brownish yellow. Grade 2 gum is in rounded, worm-shaped or branched pieces, and is smaller in size and generally darker in colour than the top quality. The poorest grade gum (Grade 3) is in the form of small brown grains.

Many common names: SEPASAL records 196 local names for this plant. Common names include: tur, tulh, harheyr (Jibbali); temmar (Dhofari arabic); Sudan gum, Kordofan gum (English); gommier, gommier vrai, gomme blonde, gomme blanche (French); khor (Punjab); kumta (Rajputana); Senegal gum, Somali gum (in the trade industry).

The use of gum arabic (or gum acacia), which is derived from an exudate from the bark, dates from the first Egyptian Dynasty (3400 B.C.).  Inscriptions from the 18th Dynasty refer to gum as ‘komi’ or ‘komme’. Gum arabic has been used for at least 4,000 years by local people for the preparation of food, in human and veterinary medicine, in crafts, and as a cosmetic. Acacia senegal produces the only acacia gum evaluated toxicologically as a safe food additive.

Nowadays the gum is present in a wide range of everyday products. 60-75% of the world production of gum arabic is used in the food industry and in human and animal medicine.
