The study shows that reading food labels could be a specific consumer reflex from one country to another. While 71.5% of the 1,000 Americans who participated in the survey read food labels, the study revealed that more than 58% of British people read the label before purchasing. Acacia Gum is a highly safe food additive that is also known as Gum Arabic, which comes from an exudation of Acacia trees after small incisions are made in the stems and branches.

Acacia Gum has been used for millennia, and is today found in small doses in a large number of everyday products, including wines, candies, cosmetics, soft drinks, and flavourings. It can be used as a coating agent for confectioneries, an emulsifier and stabilizing agent in drinks, and a fiber in dietetic products. Acacia gum's status of dietary fiber means it also has valuable properties, like an excellent digestive aid, and scientifically proven prebiotic effects. But the results have shown a huge misunderstanding about Acacia gum's uses: 49% of British people asked do not know how this natural ingredient is used. In the USA, 28% don't know where the Acacia gum can be found. The survey showed that 77% of Americans and from 82% of British people do not know that Acacia gum is a source of fiber. Alland & Robert guarantees at least 90% fiber content in its Acacia Gum.
