Pur Gum Sugar Free Chewing Gum Wintergreen - 9 Pieces
Pur Wintergreen Gum fuses blasts of Spearmint and Peppermint flavors to create a bold and exciting healthy one-two punch with every chew. Sweetened with Xylitol, this great tasting long lasting gum kicks aspartame!
Why No Aspartame?
Aspartame is the man-made, synthetic sweetener found in most sugar-free gums, beverages, and candies. This food additive has been linked to symptoms including (but not limited to) headaches, dizzines, mood change, vomiting/nausea, and change in heart rate.
Made with your health in mind, Pur Gum is completely aspartame-free. Sweetened instead with the natural goodness of Xylitol, Pur Gum gets its great taste from Mother Nature herself! A substance produced by corn, Xylitol has been found to aide in digestion, and even prevent tooth decay.
What is Xylitol?
Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables that looks and tastes like sugar. It's good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, promotes good health and has none of the negative side effects of white sugar or artificial sweeteners. Xylitol looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, and has the same sweetness as sugar, making it the ideal natural sugar replacement. Each Pur Gum contains 1 gram of Xylitol and only 2.4 calories per gram, and is slowly absorbed as a complex carbohydrate.
Xylitol is a natural insulin stabilizer, meaning it does not cause a spike in blood sugar, and actually helps reduce sugar and carbohydrate cravings perfect for those suffering from Diabetes.
Plus, Xylitol is a dentist's dream; it reverses all of the destructive effects of sugar on oral health by inhibiting growth of the bad bacteria associated with declining oral health. This dental superhero helps to restore proper alkaline/acid balance in the mouth, inhibits plaque formation and prevents tooth decay by 80 percent.
Xylitol is approved for use by (among many others):
- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration
- Health Canada
- The World Health Organization's Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives
- American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- The European Union's Scientific Committee for Food
- The California Dental Association
- Calorie Control Council
Believe it or not, chewing gum can easily be non-vegan. Many of the current chewing gums available contain gelatin or beeswax in their gum base, which are animal ingredients, thus making the chewing gum non-vegan friendly. Pur's gum base contains absolutely no animal ingredients, and is 100% certified Vegan. Pur Gum understands the need for products that speak to certain diet restrictions, and lifestyle choices to promote optimal health across the globe.
- Gluten Free
Gluten is a type of protein that is naturally found in wheat (including faro, spelt, kamut and bulgur) and other popular grains, such as rye and barley. For many people, gluten can cause body symptoms such as belly pain, joint pain and bloating. Unfortunately, there is no current test to measure the level of gluten sensitivity if you do not have celiac disease, but listening to your body and making the right decisions will help. Pur Gum offers a gluten-free chewing gum alternative that contains no wheat ingredients, and can be consumed by people with celiac disease, or people that are simply sensitive to gluten.
- No GMO
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are animals or plants that have been modified with chemicals that change its natural course. Generally, this is done so our animals and plants grow bigger and faster for production and revenue. GMOs are often found in the majority of foods we eat today, but are usually not labeled on the packaging we see in our grocery stores. At Pur, they believe consumers have the right to be educated on these products, which is why they take comfort in knowing our product uses non-GMO ingredients, and is safe to consume. Pur Gum is manufactured in Switzerland, where manufacturing GMO products are prohibited. The ingredients used in Pur Gum are taken from corn fibers grown in France and Italy, both under the European Commission, which also regulates GMO free products.
- Nut Free
Most chewing gums contain peanuts or tree nuts (e.g., walnuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans), which account for large amounts of food-allergic reactions worldwide. There is a growing problem for food allergies related to nuts with a larger need for safety, so PÜR GUM has developed our products with 100% nut-free ingredients. PÜR GUM is also manufactured in a nut-free environment, and is safe to bring to school, work or any public place. When they say PÜR, they really mean it!
- Diabetic Friendly
Pur Gum is safe and healthy for diabetics, and continues to be recommended by doctors globally. Pur uses Xylitol, a naturally occurring sweetener extracted from fibers of fruits and plants that transforms into optimal health benefits. It is used as a safe alternative for diabetics because it does not increase blood sugar levels, which keeps insulin levels from becoming imbalanced. Xylitol is absorbed into the blood stream at a slower rate than sugar, and have much lower amounts of carbohydrates. Pur Gum continues to ensure the safety of your health by offering you a diabetic friendly alternative.
- Dairy Free
Lactose, a type of natural sugar found in milk and dairy products, is found in many foods and products we consume today. However, a recent study showed that 60% of adults worldwide were considered to be lactose-intolerant. While some people have more noticeable symptoms than others, the use of dairy products can cause side effects such as bloating, cramps and nausea. PÜR GUM is produced in a lactose-free environment, and is 100% dairy-free.
- Swiss Made
Did you know? The use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) from plants and animals in Switzerland is against the Federal Law. For your safety, Pur Gum is manufactured in Switzerland, and the Xylitol used to sweeten Pur Gum is taken from corn fibers grown in France and Italy, both under the European Commission, which also regulates GMO free products. Pur Gum takes pride in knowing where our ingredients are being produced, and is safe to consume and enjoy.
