Some people think that the custom was a mostly American tradition. The US in fact currently does lead the world in the consumption of chewing gum. How ever history shows that many other cultures were involved. The ancient Greeks were very fond of a gummy substance that came from the mastic tree. Additional cultures from the Middle East also enjoyed mastic resin combined with bee’s wax. The Mayan Indians also practiced chewing. This culture picked up the practice in the early second century. This is one of the major practices of the Mayan culture left today in society. The Mayans called it chicle. We even have a product called Chiclet Gum that is very popular in todays culture.
These original natural gums are still used in gum manufacturing today. In order to enhance and deliver products that meet the needs of today’s consumers man made materials are being added. This also helps with gum life, taste, chewing quality and freshness.
The manufacture of gum is done in a very controlled environment, which is very clean and meets the highest quality standards. It is a strictly controlled laboratory environment. The base mixture consists of usually very similar materials. These include corn syrup, flour, sugar, and some synthetic materials. This base is then melted so it turns into syrup. The melted gum while kept hot is filtered and then additives are added. The gum is further blended and manufactured. It is formed into sheets or long bars through a rolling and extrusion processes. The gum is then cut to shape and processed with appropriate coatings and flavors.
Once the gum is manufactured to this point the next step is packaging. Packaging as with manufacturing is done in extremely clean areas that are subject to meeting industry standards. It is very important, as with all products that we consume that they are processed appropriately. To visit our store to buy chewing gum or if you like:
