JUST LIKE REGULAR CHEWING GUM, BUT BETTER
Most chewing gums are made of plastic. In fact, they contain some of the same materials that go into plastic bottles, glue and rubber tyres. But True Gum is different. It's made with sap from gum trees, all-natural flavours and plant-based sweeteners. True Gum is suitable for vegans and biodegradable (meaning zero waste!).
FREE FROM PLASTIC AND SYNTHETICS, FULL OF NATURAL FLAVOUR
Instead of using a traditional plastic-filled gum base, True Gum is made with chicle, a sustainable and natural ingredient coming from the sap of the Sapodilla tree. Our chicle is harvested by local “chicleros” in Central America with a sustainable technique that's been practiced for centuries and does not require cutting down trees. At the same time, using chicle supports the livelihood of the local communities.
Unlike many conventional gums, True Gum is palm oil free, does not contain any aspartame and no BHA which is a synthetic antioxidant shown to have a hormone-disturbing effect. For sweetening, we use the low-calorie plant-based sweeteners stevia and xylitol. Stevia is a sugar substitute derived from plant leaves, and xylitol comes from birch trees. Xylitol has been shown to prevent tooth decay and is therefore good for your teeth.
MADE IN TRUE GUM'S OWN LITTLE GUM FACTORY IN DENMARK
The journey of True Gum started in 2017 and, after years of experimenting and trying out all sorts of recipes in our home kitchens, we finally nailed it. What started as a passion project between four friends – Peter, Morten, Jacob, and Zabrina – has now turned into a company on a mission to produce foods that only do good for both people and our planet. Nowadays, each piece of gum is carefully crafted in our own little chewing gum factory running on green energy right outside of Copenhagen.
