Acacia gum (arabic gum)

E414 is one of the most natural ingredient, called acacia gum, or more commonly knew as arabic gum.

It is a natural exudate collected on acacias in the Saharan region of Africa. Known and used since the antiquity, the acacia gum is rich in fiber and low in calories. When used in the production of gum pastilles, it gives a firm and specific texture to the sweet; this help diffusing the active ingredients of the pastille slowly.
