Over the years, the global chewing gum market has experienced a steady growth. Some of the factors that have facilitated the market growth include health benefits, impulse purchasing, attractive packaging, innovative flavours, etc.
Chewing gum is a soft and non-edible substance produced only for the purpose of chewing. The texture of chewing gum is reminiscent of rubber owing to the properties of polymer, plasticizer, and resin components, which gives it a chewy characteristic. In addition to this, they help to eliminate bad odours by providing a refreshing taste and long-lasting flavour. While the ancient gums were produced from the sap of spruce trees, the modern chewing gum is made up of gum ba se, food colours, flavours, polyol coating among others.
