Product Description
Katha & Cutch [Eiri-0564]
Katha and cutch are produced from the heart wood of Acacia catechu. It is a common tree found in the tropical deciduous and thorn forests of India. Katha is mainly used in betel leaf (Pan) as  masticatory and valued for its catechin content. Cutch, the bye product of Katha industry is largely used for dyeing, colouring pulp in paper industry, water softening and in deep oil drilling operations. Katha is obtained mostly by crystallization in cold from the water extractives of the heartwood of Acacia catechu Willd., fam. Leguminosae commonly known as KHAIR tree, which is widely distributed in India, form the north-west plains to eastwards in Assam and throughout the country, particularly in the deciduous and drier regions. The other species namely, A. chundra  Willd and A. catechuoides of Katha is carried out both, as a cottage scale industry in and around the organized sector. The general principle of extraction of the heartwood and of consequent separation of Katha (containing most of catech in) from cutch (Principally catechu-tannic acid) is the same in cottage sector as well as large scale units. In the conventional process of Katha manufacture followed by cottage sector of the industry, during separation of the crystalline Katha, the soluble cutch-tans, a valuable by-product are neither effectively removed nor recovered, except by a few. Katha is one of the principal ingredients used in the preparation of PAN from betel leaves, for chewing purposes when, in combination with lime, it gives the characteristic red coloration. In Ayruvedic and Unani systems of medicine, Katha is used as astringent; cooling and digestive; useful in relaxed conditions of throat, mouth and gums; and also in cough and diarrhoca. Externally, it is employed as an astringent and as a cooling application to ulcers, boils and cruptions of the skin.
