Acacia seyal is a tree that grows wild and naturally in arid regions of Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania. It produces a sap which hardens into a darker natural organic gum. The Gum Arabic produced by Acacia seyal is often referred to as Gum Talha.
Gum Arabic (Acacia seyal)
The trees of Acacia seyal grow under extreme climatic conditions in Eastern Africa and the Gum Arabic exudate is either collected naturally or by intentionally tapping the stem of the tree. The exudate hardens into the Gum Arabic and Nagaad Gums, in collaboration with the local communities, harvests the gum for further processing and sales.
The Gum Arabic from Acacia seyal is a superior product and being edible and soluble in water it is used primarily as a stabilizer in the food industry. The gum also has a wide range of industrial applications such as use in the production of paints, inks, cosmetics, glue, and viscosity control in textile industries.
Acacia seyal is also highly valued for its medicinal properties and used for colds, diarrhoea, haemorrhages, jaundice, headaches and burns. It is even used as an analgesic.
