Gum you can swallow
In contrast with unpleasant gastro intestinal symptoms which often occur when traditional gum is swallowed, Mast Chew can be digested by the body.
It has even been shown to be helpful in the treatment of stomach ulcers. Mastic gum has a long history with thousands of years of traditional use. It has been shown to have anti-microbial properties, providing oral hygiene benefits by helping to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, so prevalent in western society.
To create the sweet, minty taste, alcohol sugar xylitol and mint are added. This helps to freshen breath and provide a clean mouth feeling.
We were curious to try this gum, and found that although flavour didn’t last long, it has a great taste and importantly, had the desired effect of freshening the palate.
From an environmental perspective, it is good to know that unlike commercial chewing gums, Mast Chew is biodegradable. Another tick!
Mast Chew is available for sale in Australia and internationally online.
