Only three gum exudates are permitted for pharmaceutical and food use by international regulatory authorities, viz. gum tragacanth (Asiatic Astragalus spp.), gum karaya (Sterculia spp.) and gum arabic [Acacia senegal (L.) Willd.], but a wide range of other tree exudates is used for a variety of uses in their countries of origin. This paper presents analytical data for the gum exudates from Atalaya hemiglauca, Cassine aethiopica, Combretum paniculatum, Sclerocarya birrea, and Pseudocedrela… 
Exudate gums: occurrence, production, and applications
A review of the industrially most relevant exudate gums: gum arabic, gum karya, and gum tragacanth, which covers the chemical structure, occurrence and production of the different gums.
Physicochemical characteristics of Hymeneae courbaril gum

Cationic composition and the tannin content of five gums from Venezuelan Mimosaceae species
The growing interest in polysaccharides from source others than Acacia senegal has fostered research on polysaccharides from Venezuelan Mimosaceae spp. An analytical determination of cationic
Increased gum arabic production after infestation of Acacia senegal with Aspergillus flavus and Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes transmitted by Agrilus nubeculosus.
The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between the beetle Agrilus nubeculosus and gum arabic production by Acacia senegal and it seems that A. flavus and P. pseudoalcaligenes acted as elicitors that have stimulated the synthesis of gum arABic.
Gummosis in grape hyacinth (Muscari armeniacum) bulbs: hormonal regulation and chemical composition of gums
The results suggest that principal factors of gummosis as well as the chemical composition of gums differ between species of bulbous plants.
Effect of chemical properties of soils on gum elementary compositions from Acacia senegal variety kerensis in Samburu and Marsabit districts

Gum exudates from the genus Grevillea (Proteaceae)
The gum exudates, which are of high molecular weight, show good solubility and give solutions that are much more viscous than any of the Acacia exudate studied so far; they may therefore be of industrial interest.
