WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL GUM
Functional gum contains Nutraceuticals and is developed to serve an additional benefit. Those ingredients can be vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, antioxidants, caffeine and much more designed to enhance specific functions of the body like better performance, mood, whiter teeth, etc...
We use a technology of direct compression at low temperature that allows the production of chewing gums with natural ingredients and Nutraceuticals without losing the unique characteristics of the natural products. The main benefits of COLD PROCESS technology are:
- High active ingredient load
- Taste masking
- Excellent release of active ingredients
- Flexibility of shape and weight
Releasing functional ingredients by chewing is easy and pleasant and it becomes an inexpensive and effective way to deliver active ingredients, with medicinal properties to the human body.
The release of the active ingredients initially occurs in the mouth, while the absorption of the traditional supplement ingredients require more than a half hour due to the fact those substances are released in the gastrointestinal tract and not in the mouth.
That is why the Functional Compressed powered gum – CPG is the new alternative to food supplements and its popularity is growing fast, becoming the most promising sector in the gum industry and a driving force in the overall global gum market.
