Chewing Gum Base

Gum base is made of food-grade polymers, plasticizers, softeners, texturizers and emulsifiers among other ingredients, which impart their unique properties to chewing gum. It is an insoluble and non-nutritive, non-digestible, water-insoluble substance that enables a chewing gum to be chewed for hours without experiencing substantial changes.

Gum Base can be combined with acid or non-acid flavoring, sugar or sugar substitutes as well as vitamins or active ingredient in chewing gum, bubble gum and pharmaceutical products.
