Foga Organic Gum

A smile on the face of the farmers, FOGA Organic Gum is a high-quality organic producer of Arabic gum from Africa with a sustainable impact.

High-quality organic products from satisfied farmers

All the FOGA products are harvested by farmers that FOGA knows. Farmers get:

  • Maximum profit
  • New young trees to extend their farms
  • Support for community projects like education and hygienic training

FOGA’s cleaning factories are built close to the farmers to make processing easier and generate jobs for society.

Restoring nature

FOGA invest in a green future by planting new acacia trees.

Acacia Senegal trees grow best in a hot and dry area on Sahara sand. With their roots, they fertilise the ground so other vegetation can grow.

As well as converting CO2 to oxygen, these trees also attract more rain to the area and help to prevent sandstorms.

Our Certificates


FOGA produces a range of Organic Gum Acacia (hashab) products like Instant Powder and spray-dried Arabic gum.


To tap the resin cuts are made in the bark. The exudate dries up in the open air and is then manually harvested. There are 2 tappings per season in December and March.

Dried resin

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 and Milling

The raw Gum Acacia pieces go through processing stages to be made into different products like a spray-dried variant and also an instant powder variant.


The Gum Acacia is dissolved in water, purified (by sieving and centrifugation), pasteurised, and then finally transformed into standardised powders through FOGA’s own drying process.

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.

Gum Arabic is a pale white orange brown solid that breaks with glassy fracture. It is highly soluble in water and gives 50% of solution. It consists 95% of soluble fiber, which is a good source of neutral sugars like Rhamnose, Arabinose and Galactose,. Gum Arabic is an excellent source of cationic components like calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium.

Gum Arabic from Acacia Senegal is the most preferred natural constituent for the production of high-quality soft candies. It gives the product with soft but firm, long lasting in the mouth, and provides a clean, non-sticky chewing. 

Generally, this ingredient has various applications especially used in encapsulating flavours, preventing of sugar crystallization, emulsifying the fat throughout the product and as lubricant/ binder in extruded snack cereals, partial oil replacer or water binder.
