FAQs

How is your gum different from everything else out there?

Most most modern chewing gum is made from unnatural synthetics including Polyethylene and polyvinyl acetate (both of which are common forms of plastic found in things like glue and plastic bottles). The plastic gum base is then mixed with sweeteners and more artificial ingredients, such as acesulfame-k, aspartame and BHT.

Chewsy, unlike other gums, only use natural ingredients. Our environmentally-friendly gum uses substances like chicle, from the sapodilla tree, and xylitol which comes from the birch tree.

So, you can now enjoy a natural and plastic-free gum!

How was chewsy created?

Chewsy was invented after our founder, Sunitt, started suffering from headaches after chewing regular gum found in supermarkets. Sunitt decided to investigate what gum is made of, and was shocked to see a long list of artificial ingredients alongside a plastic gum base which had been hidden under the term "gum base". All these ingredients carry horrible side effects. After searching for a better and healthier alternative and not finding any, Sunitt decided it was time to offer consumers a better chew. That's when Chewsy was born.

What's chewsy's vision?

We are on a mission to remove all the artificial and environmentally-damaging ingredients you usually find in gum and produce a truly natural, sugar-free chewing gum.

Does chewsy freshen breath?

Our Spearmint and Peppermint chewing gum flavours are perfect for eliminating odorous breath and leaving you feeling fresh, without the artificial aftertaste of regular gum.

Is there sugar in your gum?

No, we use xylitol to naturally sweeten our gum. Unlike sugar, xylitol is good for your teeth and what’s more, it’s naturally derived. Xylitol has been proven to reduce plaque and the risk of tooth decay whilst still tasting sweet- it’s the only sugar substitute able to do this!

How did you select your gum ingredients?

All of our natural ingredients are sourced from top-quality suppliers around the world. We believe taking the time to find the purest and most premium form of every ingredient is vital, as what you put in is what you get out.

Is your gum safe for kids?

Yes! Chewsy gum is a safe option for kids, with no aspartame or artificial ingredients.

Are there benefits to chewing gum?

We were hoping you'd ask! Chewsy has a number of benefits. Firstly, the naturally-derived sweetener used in Chewsy, xylitol, will actively help keep your teeth healthy, with studies suggesting that xylitol can also lower the risk of ear infection and increase bone density and collagen.

Secondly, chewing Chewsy gum will help keep you focused and improve digestion by increasing the flow of saliva (which also strengthens teeth!)

All of this makes Chewsy gum a healthy snack alternative between meals.

Where can I buy your gum?

Our gum is sold in independent stores and big retail chains all across the UK. Take a look at our stockists here. You can also find us online (here!)

Where do you make the gum?

We make our gum in South America as that's where the rainforest lives. Since our gum is made from trees, we needed to find a rainforest with a lot of trees. What better place than South America.

Can I swallow this gum?

Chewsy gum is not designed to be swallowed. However, as our gum is made from all natural, biodegradable products (with NO plastic), if you do swallow it, you won’t need to worry about any nasty side-effects!
