What is the white powder on chewing gum?
All Wrigley gums are brushed with a rolling powder before they are encased in the foil wrappers that keep them fresh. On our sugared brands a granulated sugar, which has the appearance of confectionary sugar, is used. On our sugarfree brands a dusting of sugar substitute is used. The amount of the powder used may vary and depends on the handling of the operator. In general, our Extra$ brand gums have more rolling powder brushed on them than other brands.

The ancient Greeks chewed Mastiche, the ancient Mayans chewed chicle, and North American Indians chewed the sap from spruce trees, so a form of chewing gum has been around for a long time. Thomas Adams is credited with inventing chewing gum from chicle in 1869. However, John Curtis invented th…e first commercial chewing gum in 1848, called State of Maine Pure Spruce Gum. And William Semple became the first person to patent chewing gum on December 28, 1869. ( Full Answer )

No, chewing gum is not made from whale fat, it is made from asynthetic latex sap. Actually, it is illegal to sell products madewith whale in America.
Chewing sugar-free chewing gum or gum with xylitol, is good for you. Chewing gum helps increase saliva. Saliva neutralizes acid, thus helping protect your teeth from damage. However, eating or chewing anything that contains sugar increases the acid in your mouth. Chewing gum containing sugar actu…ally adds more acid to your mouth, making it difficult for the saliva to neutralize the acid. Researchers have found that chewing gum that contains breath freshening oils can help with bad breath. Several plant essential oils, such as cinnamon oil, kill the germs that cause cavities and bad breath. Research generally shows that chewing gum helps with concentration and increases the heart rate. Chewing gum can also help relieve muscular tension and help people stay alert. Chewing gum has also been known to help people stop smoking. ( Full Answer )

Chewing Gum can help with the following:\n. \n \n\n. \n\nDigestion\n Constipation\n\nXylitol is a natural sugar substitute that is very low in calories simply because the human body cannot digest it. A known side effect of xylitol is that it can cause loose stools, so some people find it helpful …for constipation.\n. \nHeartburn / GERD\n\nGum chewing can increase saliva quantity by 130%. Saliva is rich in esophageal protective factors including epidermal growth factor, mucin, proteins and prostaglandin E2.\n. \nA study found that chewing sugarless gum or walking after a meal can neutralize throat acid and relieve symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. Chewing gum stimulates the production of saliva, which can help neutralize and wash away the acid in your throat when swallowed. This approach worked better than walking, according to researchers, walking was found to be only mildly beneficial in reducing GERD. Researchers suggest that gum chewing after meals may provide relief for those who suffer from occasional heartburn, and chewing a gum that contains antacid may provide even more relief. [MSN News November 17, 2003]\n. \n. \nNot recommended for:\nDyspepsia / Poor Digestion\n\nIf gas is a problem, one thing to keep in mind is the connection with sorbitol, a sweetener thatâs used in many brands of sugar free gum. More than five or six sticks in a day and you may get a major case of wind and even diarrhea. "The bacteria that live in our colons absolutely love sorbitol," says gastroenterologist Charlene Prather, of the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, US. The bacteria breaks down the sorbitol, and that produces large amounts of gas that swell the colon and cause pain and cramps. So, cut back on gum containing sorbitol if your are using any.\n. \nInfections\n\nPeriodontal Disease - Gingivitis\n\nXylitol reduces the incidence of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is also a risk factor for damage to heart and blood vessels. In the presence of xylitol, bacterial adhesion to epithelial cells is disrupted. In an in vitro assay using a 5% solution of xylitol, researchers demonstrated that the mucosal attachment of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae was reduced by factors of 68% and 50%, respectively.\n. \nMusculo-Skeletal\n\nSusceptibility To Cavities\n\nXylitol gum is the healthy gum that is good for your teeth. Xylitol is the natural sweetener used in chewing gum, mints and toothpaste that has the ability to fight cavities and dental plaque. It has received official endorsements from six national dental associations around the world because of its effectiveness.\n. \nPersonally, I don't chew gum. Once a day, I place a small amount of toothpaste on the end of my toothbrush and then dip it into a small container of xylitol (available by the pound in a health food store or even some supermarkets), and them brush the teeth. Xylitol can also be substituted (perhaps up to 50%) when a baking recipe calls for sugar. ( Full Answer )
As long as there is no sugar in it or plain chewing gum and I think 'no' anyway.
gum chewing in the classroom can allowed/not allowed depends on how you use it in my school
Here in Southern California, it's about $1.25 for a pack of gum at the grocery store.
One of the ingredients is rubber so thing about that when you next eat bubblegum or chewingum
Because people like how it tastes. It also tricks you into tothinking that your more full so you don't eat as much.

The basic ingredients in chewing gum are: gum base, softeners, sweeteners and flavorings. The primary elastic ingredient, Chicle, a rubber-like substance produced from the chicle tree of South America. The base, which contains ingredients such as polymers, wax and softeners, ensures the ideal st…ructure and chewing properties. It is gum base that gives chewing gum its character. Answer: Originally, chewing gum was made from the latex sap (chicle) of the sapodilla tree of Central America. This sap was called . During World War II chemists learned to make synthetic rubber which came to replace most natural rubber in chewing gum. The last USA. manufacturer to use chicle is Glee Gum. This synthetic rubber base is similar to the rubber in car tires. ( Full Answer )
Not in a public place. The selling of gum to children is treated like selling alcohol to kids here in the US,
Yes. Much of the initial mass of the gum mixes with the chewer's saliva and is swallowed during the chewing process, particularly in the first couple of minutes.
Because they dont want you sticking in to the bottomes of tabes and other plases when a trash can is just a few feet away, and they dont want oto have to pick it off after wards, not fun!
Chewing gum's flavor usually lasts longer and is harder to blow a bubble - hence the "chewing" name - you're supposed to chew it. Also, bubble gum tends to have sugar in it, whereas chewing gum tends to be sugar-free.
ha ha ha that was hilarious! posted by me, slothbrain of destiny they are dum tooo lol
It all has to do with your brain. Most people are either left brain hemisphere, or right brain hemisphere dominant (though some are co-dominant). Left hemisphere thinkers are generally analytical, textbook, step-by-step, study-in-a-silent-room kinds of people. Right hemisphere thinkers are generall…y the more creative, outside-the-box sorts, who need stimulation to really process things well. Chewing gum can improve concentration in those who are more right hemisphere dominant by stimulating their brain. ( Full Answer )
Chewing gum... you can see how it was scienctifically proven at Vizzed, but you have to register first at http://vizzed.com/vizzedboard/register.php?ref=28041

They say you souldn't, but it's really not all that bad. I would stay away from huba buba, but really I chewed gum all the time when I had my braces and the dentist never made any mention of it. However, don't go trying to stick it to your braces because it can get caught around the bracet and be ha…rd to get out, but that's about the worst that could happen. Hope this helps! ( Full Answer )

Yes you are aloud to chew sugar gum. BUT, not when you have braces or any orthodontic hardware in your mouth.
No. As a teacher I hate gum chewing in class. The one thing that bothers me is when students pop gum and play with it. If someone sits quietly chewing that is a bit different, but I ask students to throw gum out as a matter of course. People also don't seem to throw it away properly, but it is all o…ver the floors and on furniture and that is gross. ( Full Answer )
It can be considered edible as it is not dangerous to eat (Unless you eat really a lot of them). You will however get little nutrition out of it once it is chewed and its sugar contents is used up. In most cases, it will just partly dissolve in the stomack and be expelled like all other non-digesta…ble matters. ( Full Answer )
It is bad to chew chewing gum in class because the teacher will catch us or a student will tell on us. (new) it is actually good for your learning to chew gum in class because tastes and sounds help people remember things so if you chew gum while studding chew it during your test and you will ha…ve a better chance of remembering what you studied. I agree with the above answer, but it needs explanation: Chewing gum, first of all is a rule, and regardless of why the rule was made it should be followed. Second, when you study, you should do it as much as you can in the same same stimuli in which you will take the test. So, if it is quiet when you are taking a test, then study in a quiet place. Now, as far as the question about the chewing gum, if you are to be allowed to chew it during the test, then chew it when you are studying so that you can replicate the environment that is familiar and allow for more recall and higher success.

No. If you can't get your ears to pop, eg during altitude changes when you are flying, then chewing gum can help your ears to pop and relieve pressure. Otherwise, chewing gum is in no way good or bad for your ears.
Xylitol (hydrogenated xylose) is common in chewing gum as a sweetening agent. Actually, it is used as a sweetener in many oral hygienic products (ex. mouthwash, toothpaste). It seems that the bacteria that grow in your mouth can not properly digest it. Actually we can't properly metabolize it eithe…r. It was one of the first sweeteners found that diabetics could use with increasing their insulin levels. Added to the fact that it has little aftertaste and currently there are no known health warnings, you can see why xylitol is so popular in gum. ( Full Answer )
Calories from gum are from the liquid that comes from chewing the gum. You swallow the liquid which you digest. So basically, both.
I strongly recommend Dentyne Ice IntenseÂ®. It's almost as if your chewing a bottle of listerine. It's great if you just had something disgusting to eat or drink, if you like having a minty breathe (for a long period of time), enjoying GOOD bubble gum you can blow decent bubbles with, or want to i…mpress that special someone minus the smell of morning breathe.

Actually chewing gum is made up of chicle ! It is from a kind of tree in the Amazon Rain Forest .
You spit it in a bin, not on the floor it costs millions to clean up, SO PUT IT IN THE BIN!
Some chewing gum contains gelatin, which is an animal product.However, it's not common for gum to contain gelatin.
Now I know that you're the kind of person who loves gum! I do too but I make chewing gum kebabs. You make them by stretching your gum into a thin string and wrapping it round a finger or pencil or something round and bite and chew it of like a kebab! Easy!
nothing is wrong with chewing gum in class it concentrates and helps you in the MSP
William Finley Semple, a dentist, filed and received the first patent for chewing gum on December 28, 1869, patent no. 98,304 in Mount Vernon, Ohio. He believed it would help strengthen his patients jaw muscles. Some sources say this claim is false; as there was a man, also in Ohio, who is said to …have filed for a patent about five months to the day on July 27, 1869. His name was Amos Tyler and he resided in Toledo. ( Full Answer )
yes it is. The definition of a solid is a substance with a definite mass and volume and shape. A liquid has a definite mass and volume, but changes shape to fit that of it's container. A gas has a definite mass, but no definite shape or volume. While chewed bubble gum is a little amorphous, it is te…chnically a solid because, while it does change shape a little, it does not continue to stretch itsef thin until it has reached the edges of it's container (i.e. the room you are in or the furthest reaches of your mouth). Also, the chewed gum has a definite shape, it is an ameboid shape, but it is a shape nontheless. ( Full Answer )
Yes, chewing gum does come from the rainforests. It originates from the chicle tree - when the bark is cut, the goo oozes out. From there it is boiled and shaped, flavours such as mint are added later.
YES Chewing gum is chewed at high altitude, some people chew gum when they Take off from a plane or start the landing process...because the rapid decrease or increase of altitude will make pressure on your ears...witch MAY hurt a bit, too relieve some people chew gum...
Because you look like a monkey haha. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Because the gum loses it's flavor and hardens because the gum has been chewed for so long and it just does.
Some do it to cut their hunger. Others do it because theywant to freshen their breath.
no because when you are chewing gum it is soft and easy but when you chew an apple is hard to eat.
So most people just chew gum for fun or because they like the flavors or something but chewing gum isn't all that good for you. So since you chew gum your stomach thinks there food coming but when it sees there is no food coming and your just chewing gum if will start eating away on acids in your st…omach so it is ok to chew gum but not like every day!

Chewing is a form of exercise. It leads to stronger jaw muscles, and even stronger gums. Everything gets stronger, when exercised.
No. In the US, it's probably cornstarch, which is used to keep the gum from sticking to the wrapper.
