Gum Arabic Export: Gum Arabic is a gum of acacia tree branches with the scientific name of Acacia Nilotica (L) Delile that is formed by insect bites and scratches on the branches, stems and trunks of the acacia tree.
It is a tree with a height of 1 to 18 meters, the branches are young and glabrous, the leaves have petioles covered with various tubers, and the flowers are pale yellow.
Product of gum from trunk, branches and stems
The gum is obtained by two natural and artificial methods.
In the natural method, it is formed by insect bites and scratches caused when the wind hits the branches.
In the artificial method, a thick gum is obtained, which is called latex, by cutting a slit on the branches, trunks and stems with a length of 60 cm.
In the early fall, degumming usually begins by local farmers after the winds called Harmattan.
The stronger the current of the winds, the more the produced gums.
Gum arabic is obtained from different species of acacia tree where the color varies according to the species from which the gum is produced.
The high-quality gum arabic is white or yellowish white, the pieces are in the form of teardrops as small successive pieces, and the cross-section is transparent after the fracture.
This gum can be dissolved in water, which produces a viscous solution and precipitates due to plumbous acetate (sous acetate de plomb) and alcohol.
Arabane and Galactane are the two main constituents of this gum, and the hydrolysis of the two substances produces arabinose and galactose.
Gum arabic contains the following constituents:
Sugars, water, minerals, tannins, tannosides, acids including arabic acid (acid arabique), and gummic acid (acid gommique).
It grows in Iran, India, Pakistan, Senegal, Gambia, and Nigeria.
Distribution in Iran
It grows in Sistan and Baluchestan, Bushehr, southern Fars, and Hormozgan.
Nitric acid can be used to recognize the original gum arabic.
If nitric acid applies to the original gum arabic, a substance called mucic acid with the formula COOH (CHOH)4 COOH is produced, but if this substance applies to the counterfeit gum arabic, oxalic acid is produced.
