PÜR Gum answers your questions
Why Aspartame Free?
Aspartame is the man-made, synthetic sweetener found in most sugar-free gums, beverages, and candies. This potentially dangerous food additive has been linked to symptoms including (but not limited to) headaches, dizziness, mood change, vomiting/nausea, and change in heart rate.
Made with your health in mind, PÜR Gum is completely aspartame-free. Sweetened instead with the natural goodness of Xylitol, PÜR Gum gets its great taste from Mother Nature herself! A substance produced by corn, Xylitol has been found to aide in digestion, and even prevent tooth decay.
What is Xylitol?
Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables looks and tastes like sugar. Its good for your teeth, stabilizes insulin and hormone levels, promotes good health and has none of the negative side effects of white sugar or artificial sweeteners. Xylitol looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, and is the same sweetness as sugar - making it the ideal natural sugar replacement. Each PÜR Gum contains 1 gram of Xylitol and only 2.4 calories per gram, and is slowly absorbed as a complex carbohydrate.
Xylitol is a natural insulin stabilizer, meaning it doesn't cause a spike in blood sugar and actually helps reduce sugar and carbohydrate cravings perfect for diabetics and those suffering from Celiac disease.
Plus, Xylitol is a dentist's dream. It reverses all these destructive effects of sugar on oral health. This dental superhero helps to restore proper alkaline/acid balance in the mouth, inhibits plaque formation and prevents tooth decay by 80 per cent.
Because PÜR Gum prides itself on the use of all-natural flavours, colours, and sweeteners, our products are 100% GMO-free.
The use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is a relatively new and controversial practice in food production. The modification of the world’s natural foods can create numerous problems, some of which include crop failures, stomach and intestinal issues, and transgenic contamination.
The very limited scientific testing available, combined with a lack of long-term results are reasons enough for PÜR Gum to say no to GMOs.
Stay GMO-free with our natural fresh flavours; peppermint, spearmint, and pomegranate mint.
