FOGA ORGANIC GUM ACACIA PRODUCTS
FOGA is produces a range of Organic Gum Acacia (hashab) products like Instant Powder and spray dried arabic gum.
Tapping the resin happens via cuts in the bark. The exudate dries up in open air and is then manually harvested. There are 2 tappings per season in December and March.
After the harvest, the Gum Acacia tears are still soft and have to dry under the sun before the sorting, packing, storage, transport and export.
Granulating / milling
The raw Gum Acacia pieces go through processing stages to be made into different products like a spray dried variant and also instant powder variant.
The Gum Acacia is dissolved in water, purified (by sieving and centrifugation), pasteurized, and finally transformed into standardized powders through our company-own drying process.

Foga Gum Arabic (Hashab – Kordofan Type) Spray Dry
Gum Acacia (also called Gum Arabic) is made of the juice of a group of small acacia Senegal trees and shrubs, which grow predominantly around the warmer regions like gum belt, the Sahara in Sudan, Chad, Nigeria, Senegal and some parts of tropics and the Subtropics region. During the harvest season, trees are ‘tapped’ by making cuts in the trees. On the cuts the gum grows. After a few weeks the farmers get the gum from the tree. Crude of the grades are selected based on the type of hand Picked Selected (HPS), Cleaned Gum, Siftings and Dust.
