CHEWSY sugar & plastic free chewing gum is an award-winning plant-based, gum made with ingredients that are sugar free, aspartame free, artificial free, gluten free and vegan. The UK’s first and only plant-based, plastic-free gum. 100% compostable, natural and vegan chewing gum.
Chewsy gum uses a natural, plastic-free base called chicle from a tree, which is fully biodegradable and better for the planet. Instead of artificial sweeteners, they use 100% xylitol to sweeten the gum – great for oral health . Find out more about sugar, xylitol and oral health here.
Chewing sugar-free gum increases saliva flow, which helps buffer and neutralise acids and sugars in the mouth. Saliva has an important antimicrobial and cleaning role in oral health, helping to prevent infections, whilst repairing and lubricating soft tissues. It is also important for taste, eating and swallowing food and helps maintain fresh breath.
Basically, saliva is your secret helper! You don’t notice all it’s doing behind the scenes, until it isn’t there – which anyone who suffers from a dry mouth will tell you. Read more about the benefits of chewing CHEWSY sugar & plastic free chewing gum in this blog post.
Poor saliva flow can increase your risk of tooth decay, gum inflammation, acid erosion and trauma to the soft tissues, as well as affecting speech, swallow, taste, fresh breath and overall quality of life.
Chewing sugar-free gum for 20 minutes after meals and snacks helps to stimulate saliva flow, therefore helping to neutralise plaque acids in the mouth, rinse food particles away and remineralise (harden) tooth surfaces. As beneficial as it is, chewing gum should NOT be used as an alternative to brushing and flossing teeth regularly.
