What is Chewing Gum
Chewing gum and bubble gum, in fact, can be collectively referred to as "gum-based candy," which is one of the oldest candies in the world. The United States has a deep love affair with chewing gum, not only because it is one of the important export products of the United States, it is also a proud of the history of American invention.
According to statistics, a person probably chews 20,000 pieces of gum in his or her lifetime. Many forms of chewing gum have existed since the Neolithic era, and a gum made of birch bark tar and bearing tooth marks was found in Kierikki, Finland, 6,000 years ago.
The history of chewing gum can be traced all over the world, but its commercialization began in the U.S. When Columbus discovered the American continent in 1498, he found that the Native Americans also had a habit of chewing the gum of the heart fruit. In 1848, John B. Curtis, an American businessman from Maine, developed and sold the first commercial chewing gum, "Maine Pure Spruce Resin Juice", using this practice. Around 1850, a "chewing gum" made of paraffin wax was created and soon overtook the status of spruce gum.
Modern chewing gum was first developed in the 1860s when former President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna brought Chicle (a type of gum) from Mexico to New York, where he gave it to Thomas Adams as a rubber substitute Chicle did not succeed in replacing rubber, but became chewing gum, and in 1871 became known as "Chiclets and Wrigley's Peppermint Gum were early favorites that quickly took over the market and are still around today.
Chewing gum is the use of natural gum processed from the chewable sugar, which will add some mint and syrup-type flavoring, is a can eat and fun candy. Chewing gum will bring health to our mouth and evaporate the odor in our mouth, while can also exercise our facial muscles. The main component of chewing gum is elastin, which can be modifiers to promote oral health and beauty. The substance has been known as an appetite suppressant because it sticks close to the teeth; however its effects are short lived in that it only lasts a few minutes after consumption before being washed away by our saliva or stomach acidsity if eaten raw (which most flavors do). It also consists mostly polymer chain like other biodegradable plastics making them nearly impossible for humans digesting.
To this day, if you pay close attention to your daily lifestyle, you might see that chewing gum is undeniably part of our life. You have some in your car, you have more at home, you maybe reach out to your pocket and also find some pack full of gum. Why? Because of the feeling and the sensations it gives you when you chew it. Think about all the chewiness, all the stickiness, the beautiful flavored taste it leaves to your mouth, the big bubbles you can make (which takes some kind of skill), and of course that amazing cooling sensation your tastebuds feel when you are finished chewing it. Chewing gum is easy, small, packable, available at any time, and you can find it anywhere in stores. That’s why it became like a daily habit for us to chew gum on a daily basis.
Apart from all the sensational enjoyment that chewing gum gives you, it comes with some great health benefits too. I bet you didn’t know that just by chewing gum, by doing something pleasurable, you simultaneously improve your working memory, periodic memory and also speed of perception. Fixing bad breath, and reducing cavities and plaque, are also some vital dental benefits that chewing gum can help with. Sugar-free gums are way more beneficial for human’s teeth than we thought about.
Essentially, chewing gum is a mix of gum base, sweeteners, softeners, colors, and flavors, specifically designed to be chewed but not swallowed. That's all you need to know. All chewing gum companies use these ingredients to have a final product. Suifafood, is just using them better.
