AFRICAN WRENCH Gum Arabic Extractor Concept is a tool for extracting gum arabic from the Acacia senegal tree. The gum provides one of many chemical compounds used to treat diarrhoea – a major lead to of death among children throughout developing countries. Gum arabic (acacia gum) is obtained from your Acacia senegal tree, which is commonly observed in the tropical regions and Africa. Your gum can serve as a source regarding mucilage – one of the chemical compounds used to treat diarrhoea. African Wrench ended up being inspired by this simple fact. This gum-tapping tool was designed with the hope that this type of device could lead to your reduction in death rates by facilitating the attainment of gum from your Acacia senegal tree.
