Alland & Robert have released a new document discussing acacia gum and its role in reducing sugar consumption. The review covers the body's response to acacia and how to use it within a product.
Acacia gum is a natural exudation that is produced and extracted naturally after an incision is made in an acacia tree’s trunk or branches. In addition to being a fully natural product, its harvest is also 100% natural and sustainable, as it is done manually by local population from wild trees in the southern Sahel of Africa.
Nowadays, Acacia gum is used as an additive in the food and beverages industry. It has many functional properties: for example it is an emulsifier, a coating agent, natural glue, a texturing agent,etc. This versatility makes it one of the most widely used additive in thousands of day-to-day products all over the world.
In addition, Acacia gum is an additive that poses no threat to human health. Its harmlessness has been demonstrated historically and no maximum daily intake (ADI-acceptable daily intake) has ever been set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the JECFA (Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives).
