  • 3. Gums:  Gums are the adhesive substances of vegetable (plant) origin.  They are generally obtained as an exudate from the barks of trees and shrubs.  Generally these gums and mucilages are exudated by plants due to the stressed conditions.  But, commercially it is made by creating incision in the bark and stem.  The production gum by these trees by the process called as gummosis.
