Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Gum Base?
Gum base is the indigestible part of gum that gives it chewy texture– the part you discard after chewing. Today, the gum base in most chewing gum is made of entirely synthetic materials. Not Glee! The gum base in Glee Gum is 100% natural!
What Is Chicle?
Chicle is the sap from the sapodilla (pronounced "sap-oh-dee-yah") tree, which grows in the rainforests of Central America. Chicle was the original basis for all chewing gum, until synthetic gum bases were developed. By using chicle in their gum base, they support chicleros, the workers who tap trees for chicle. They also create an ongoing use for the Sapodilla trees, which otherwise have economic value only as lumber. The sustainable harvest of chicle helps to conserve the rainforest
What does Glee Gum's FAIRTRADE Certification Mean?
This certification guarantees that the cane sugar sweetening Glee Gum meets the social, economic and environmental standards set by Fairtrade International. Fairtrade International, a non-profit organization, oversees an alternative system of global trade in which farmers and workers are paid a fair and stable price for their produce, regardless of changes in the marke.
Does Glee Gum Taste Like Other Gum?
In a word, no. You may find Glee a bit stickier than conventional gum, due to the naturally sticky tree sap that gives it texture. Chewing two pieces at a time helps! The flavor may fade a little quicker too. That’s because Glee is made without all the artificial additives, enhancers, sweeteners, and preservatives used in mainstream gum. Glee’s producers think it’s healthier to skip that stuff. They thank you for giving Glee a chance and a chew. They believe it’s the better choice, and they hope you do, too.
