Gum Ghatti is an exudate gum from the tree Anogeissus latifolia found in India and Sri Lanka. Applications are similar to Gum Arabic in the food and pharmaceutical industries where it is used as an emulsifier. The polysaccharide has a backbone chain of (1-6)-linked β-D-galactopyranosyl units with some (1-4)-D-glucopyranosyluronic acid units, some joining (1-2)-D-mannopyranosyl units, and some L-arabinofuranose units.
