Chewing gum main ingredients are

  • Gum Base - chicle, mastiche (organic), rubber (synthetic)
  • Sweetener - either sugar, sorbitol, or aspartame, with cornstarch for mass
  • Softeners - are added to maintain moisture
  • Flavorings - all kind of flavors (many use artificial chemical flavoring)
  • Color - added to bubble gum especially, but some gums are still gray -today there are practically all colors.
