FOGA ORGANIC GUM ACACIA PRODUCTS
FOGA is producing a range of Organic Gum Acacia (hashab) products like Instant Powder and spray dried arabic gum.
To harvest the gum, the bark of the Acacia trees is cut (“tapping”), the resin comes out as little tears or drops. The exudate dries up at the 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 are processed into different forms like spray dry, instant powder.
Pulverizing: 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.
