Ghatti Gum Market

Ghatti Gum is the gum of the tree species Anogeissus Latifolia. These trees are endemic to the Indian subcontinent. The word “Ghati” designates a mountain valley in the Hindi Language. The term “ghat” is used in different Indian languages to describe mountain passes which are difficult to access. Hence, Ghatti Gum can somewhat be translated to “Gum from the mountains”.

Ghatti Gum is traditionally used in India for its therapeutical properties and as food. Due to the high content of water soluble fiber, Ghatti Gum is ingested in the case of gut problems. The raw material Ghatti Gum consists of small, whitish to dark red, odorless resin lumps. As a natural polysaccharide, Ghatti Gum has a complex sugar structure mainly composed of L-Arabinose, D-Galactose, D-Glucuronic Acid and D-Mannose. Ghatti Gum has a very high content of water soluble fiber. Anogeissus Latifolia grows GMO and pesticide free in the wilderness and is used for a multitude of purposes by the local populace.

The harvest of Ghatti Gum is a little different from other gum varieties: the trees exude Ghatti gum on their own, either through naturally occurring wounds in the bark or when the temperature is very hot. Due to this, tapping, human-made cuts in the trees, is not necessary in the harvest of Ghatti Gum. First processing steps include the cleaning and sorting of the gum. After that, the gum can be further processed into a whitish powder. This powder offers a higher degree of purity and an easier integration into the production process of the final industrial user.

Ghatti Gum Market: Overview

Gum Ghatti is obtained from the dried exudates of a tree found mainly in India and Srilanka called as Anogeissus Latifola. The exudates from the tree are processed in a way that the gums with barks are fed to processing machines where barks are detached from gum.  The finer crushed particles are then screened and removed . Then gum is now hand-sorted into various grades according to color and amount of impurity. During the process of particle breakdown, impurities are removed from gum while working on spray so as to dry the soluble friction to obtain powdered gum Ghatti.
