    Puremints Pastilles 100% Natural by Meltzer's

    Meltzer's - Puremints Pastilles 100% Natural Peppermint - 1.76 oz. (50 g)

    Meltzer's 100% Natural Peppermint Puremints pastilles are deliciously minty and not overly sweet. Meltzer's features their custom peppermint oil, grown in the fertile Pacific Northwest. Meltzer's reinvents natural pastilles by combining their peppermint oil with the healthy, beneficial herbs chlorella, parsley and chamomile, herbs renowned for natural healthy and digestive support.

    Meltzer's Peppermint Oil
    Meltzer's Peppermint Oil is of supreme quality. It has a smooth, full-bodied flavor that is naturally crisp and cool. Made from peppermint grown in the Pacific Northwest, famous for it's high quality mint oil, it is absolutely pure and natural. We worked closely with our grower to develop our unique, custom blend. Meltzer's natural mints contain a blend of the finest ingredients including organic peppermint, organic parsley, organic chamomile, and organic chlorella.

    Cool, invigorating, refreshing. We all know that very distinctive flavor sensation one gets from Mentha piperita, commonly known as peppermint, an aromatic herb used for centuries for it's flavor and it's health-supporting properties.

    Traditional Use
    The historical use of peppermint dates back to the early 18th century and is quite similar to how it is used today. Peppermint tea has always been enjoyed and, more recently, peppermint's distinctive flavor has become popular as a lozenge or mint. Peppermint has been used by herbalists as a general digestive aid as well as to relax and sooth the intestines. The two main cultivated forms are the black mint, which has violet-colored leaves and stems and a relatively high oil content, and the white mint, which has pure green leaves and a milder taste.

    Location, Location, Location!
    The Pacific Northwest, with its numerous valleys and microclimates, is famous for its Peppermint oil just as Napa Valley is famous for its wine. The north-western coastal area has the perfect climate, as well as soil fertility, for growing peppermint and the peppermint oil produced there is considered by many mint connoisseurs to be the finest in the world. The variations of Peppermint oil from that area - some smooth and full-bodied, others spicy and cool - are as complex as that of wines and have absolutely excellent flavor!

    Growing Conditions
    Growing conditions are extremely important for the quality of natural Peppermint oil. Individual valleys have their own microclimates creating natural yet dependable variations in peppermint flavor. The amount of water and moisture, sunlight, fertility of the soil, and temperature all contribute to the chemical make-up, as well as to the amount of flavor constituents found in the oil. A careful peppermint grower is able to cultivate plants to achieve an optimal flavor profile while achieving exciting variations in the end flavor by intimately knowing how separate microclimates affect the plants. This is similar to the growing of grapes for fine wines.

    Chemical Components
    The activities of Peppermint are due primarily to its volatile oil, which exists in the leaves and flowering tops. Menthol, considered one of the main active components of Peppermint, also lends to it that "cooling" sensation. Menthol is a very volatile component of the oil - when pure, natural peppermint oil is used delicate, white menthol crystals may sometimes form due to slight variations in temperature. But menthol is by far not the only ingredient that gives Peppermint its distinctive flavor. Natural Peppermint oil contains varying percentages of several different components which provide a full flavor and complexity, including menthol esters, and menthone, as well as flavanoids and tannins. Often these components are removed and substituted for more menthol or an artificial menthol substitute called "menthol carboxylate" - so the resulting "peppermint oil" feels cooler yet misses the depth of flavor. And it is frequently no longer all natural.

    Meltzer's Peppermint Pastilles
    Meltzer's Puremints pastilles contain Pacific Northwest Peppermint Oil that has been custom blended to our unique specifications for just the right depth of flavor and coolness. And our peppermint oil contains absolutely nothing artificial. No artificial flavor enhancers, no artificial cooling agents, no artificial anything! It is Pure and Natural which is something Meltzer's is committed to and takes great pride in. So we state it clearly right on the front label. Unless a product, like peppermint oil, is specifically substantiated to be natural it very well may not be. Also, Meltzer's Peppermint oil was not produced using Propylene glycol, a controversial solvent often used in flavor or flavor oil manufacture, nor was our Peppermint oil gamma-irradiated. Meltzer's Peppermint oil is truly of the highest quality available - and we compliment it with organic beneficial herbs that support fresh breath and digestion.

    Organic Parsley
    Parsley is most popular as a garnish and is an excellent breath freshener. Parsley was cultivated as early as the third century BC. The Romans used Parsley as a garnish and flavoring. It spread to the Americas in the 17th century, where it now grows plentifully. It is the most widely used culinary herb in the United States. Parsley is difficult to process because it takes twelve pounds of fresh Parsley to make one pound of dried. However, more people still use dried Parsley than fresh leaves as a garnish in soups, salads, meats, vegetables, and sauces.

    Organic Chlorella
    Chlorella are green, single-cell microalgae. They are highly nutritious and a rich source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a group of related green pigments found in photosynthetic organisms. It is commonly used for reducing bad breath and helping with detoxification. Avoid confusion with chlorophyllin, a semisynthetic derivative of chlorophyll. In addition to chlorophyll, chlorella contains 60% protein and is a complete vegetarian protein, containing all eight essential amino acids.

    Organic Chamomile
    Chamomile is a mild, sweet-tasting tea herb very popular as a soothing, calming tea. Although it is commonly understood as a 'calming' herb, the traditional use by herbalists has actually been for physical soothing of the digestive system, mucous membranes and as well as a "blood purification" tonic. Chamomile has historically been used for indigestion, upset stomach, and nausea, as well as flatulence associated with mental stress. It also has been used for irritation of the mouth.

    Meltzer's Puremints Frequently Asked Questions

    Are Meltzer's mints gluten free?
    Yes. They also are all natural with no artificial colors, flavorings, or preservatives, and absolutely no animal products. Meltzer's sugar, and all of their ingredients, are Certified Kosher. Nothing has been irradiated, and the flavors and oils are made without propylene glycol.

    Why are there tiny white crystals on the peppermints? They are not there all the time.
    These are natural menthol crystals. They may look like a very fine dust or tiny clumps. They form from temperature changes, since the menthol component of the peppermint oil is naturally volatile and forms crystals when cooled. A high amount of pure peppermint oil is used in the mints and this naturally occurs. This would not occur if artificial flavor, less pure oil or small amounts of oil were used. It's part of the pure freshness.

    How should I store the mints? I usually keep them in my purse or pocket and in my car.
    Mints can be stored at room temperature. Storing at room temp, or cooler, is good. If they get warm it's not a problem, but if kept at room temperature the flavor lasts longer, just like any other candy or mint.

    What give the mints their nice color?
    The light green of the peppermints and the golden color of the gingers are from the natural ingredients used, particularly the herbs. No dyes or synthetic coloring agents are used.

    What are the ingredients in Meltzer's Puremints?

    • Peppermints - Cane sugar, pure peppermint oil, parsley, chamomile, chlorella, magnesium stearate.
      Parsley & chamomile are added for freshening effects. Chlorella is a source of chlorophyll, which has a freshening effect. Magnesium stearate is derived from vegetable oil and helps in making the tablets. The peppermints are nice and cool and have a light green color due to the herbs.
    • Ginger - Cane sugar, pure ginger extract, natural flavor, peppermint oil, American ginseng extract, Korean ginseng extract, Tienchi ginseng extract, magnesium stearate. Ginsengs have a supportive and warming effect on digestion and work with the ginger. The ginger mints are warm and spicy due to the real ginger used.
    • DGL Licorice - Cane sugar, licorice root extract (deglycyrrhized), natural flavor, peppermint oil, anise, fennel, cardamom, calcium stearate. NOTE: There is absolutely no honey in this formula and product.
    • Spearmint - Cane sugar, spearmint oil, peppermint oil, green tea, parsely, peppermint leaf, calcium stearate.

    Science, Sophistication, and Quality
    Linda Meltzer started Meltzer's with the vision of creating great tasting, all natural products of the finest quality. And that is exactly what they have done. Meltzer's reinvents natural pastilles with mints that contain real herbs and have healthy, beneficial value:

    As a Nutritionist, and Research Scientist, Linda Meltzer has been developing herbal formulas and products in the field of health and nutrition for over a decade. Her expertise is in vitamin and herbal biochemistry and nutrition - specifically, the development of products that support health. Ensuring that they taste good - flavor formulation - is one of her specialties.

    And the relation between health and mint? As a mint connoisseur, Linda Meltzer has been greatly disappointed with all the mints and pastilles on the market. Most are terribly sweet - whether the sweetener is sugar, xylitol, or an artificial one, too sweet is the prevailing taste. The actual flavor and herb, whether it is mint, ginger, or something else appears to be an afterthought. Frequently menthol is used, an inexpensive way to make a mint cool while using small amounts of actual mint. And often just flavor is used, not the actual herb or oil that has health and digestive benefits and takes them back into history as to why mints began being used in the first place - to help with digestion after a meal. Thus the true meaning of pastille in this instance - a healthy mint that actually contains real herbs and has beneficial value.

    Quality mint oil is a costly yet health promoting actual ingredient yet cheap, inexpensive oil is available and is often used in making candy or as a flavoring ingredient. Mint oil is like wine and quality varies greatly as does price - and cost is usually the bottom line. Even some mints that contain real herbs, or claim they do, have very little in it. A pastille that contains ginger root should taste like it - not like a sweet candy that reminds one faintly of ginger or some other flavor. A pastille that claims to be Licorice should really contain Licorice - not just a "licorice like" flavor.

    Linda Meltzer could not find a single mint, or pastille, that was premium quality, with all natural, pure ingredients as well as great flavor. This was quite disappointing! Even the mints that indicated peppermint oil as an ingredient had her questioning, knowing as she does, the processing method of peppermint and how it is commonly modified with artificial "cooling agents" to make them taste 'cool' while using less peppermint oil. These companies may very well be using oil that's not completely natural without even knowing it. And often the oil is further blended with other artificial ingredients including flavors, colors and sweeteners. Some mints also contain animal gelatin.

    Doing this takes away from the full quality of mint. Mint is natural. It has been used for centuries, all over the world, as a spice and for its numerous health benefits. Nature created this wonderful, delicious, and health supporting herb - and yet is being processed and modified until it is no longer natural and pure. This is also true for many other natural oils and flavors such as Ginger, Spearmint, and Licorice. Meltzer's has changed this. Linda Meltzer decided to use her skill and scientific expertise in the field of herbs and nutrition to create the finest all natural mint pastilles the world has ever tasted. Meltzer's Puremints was born, and thus The Meltzer Company, dedicated to creating products of uncompromised quality, sophisticated formulation, and great taste.

    Of particular importance at Meltzer's is material quality which, in addition to taste and flavor, determines nutritional and botanical value as well. Meltzer's use only the finest all natural ingredients with particular attention given to purity as well as material source. Meltzer's search and accept only ingredients that are vegan (free of animal products), are not irradiated, and have little or no added fillers. Absolutely nothing artificial is used - no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. All ingredients are carefully evaluated for flavor and function and only the best are chosen.

    The Meltzer Company is proud to introduce their all natural Meltzer's Puremints pastilles, available in four flavors: Ginger, Peppermint and their new Licorice and Spearmint. These four elegant and delicious pastilles not only taste great but are absolutely natural and vegetarian - no preservatives, gelatin, animal products, artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors have been added. They also contain beneficial herbs, such as parsley, chlorella, chammomile, and ginseng, that have been used for centuries to support health and digestion. They are not super sweet and you can really taste the herbs and oils in them. Meltzer's hope you enjoy them as much as they do! Linda Meltzer, CN
