Gum Arabic Hashab is a dried exudation obtained from the stems and branches of Acacia Senegal.
Gum Arabic Hashab is pale white to yellowish- orange and solid. When ground, the pieces are paler and have a glassy appearance. The fact that it has saccharides and glycoproteins gives it the properties of glue.
It is edible and is a key ingredient in traditional lithography. Gum Arabic Hashab is known for its many uses in food items such as gelatos and soft drinks, marshmallows and other candies.
It is also used in the food industry as a stabilizer, emulsifier, flavouring agent, humectant, and thickener.
