Gum Bases

There are many types of bubble and chewing gums, which is the reason Cafosa has more than 200 different kinds of gum bases. The gum base you are looking for depends on whether you want to produce a bubble or chewing gum, with sugar or sugar-free, including acid or non-acid flavors and the format of the chewing gum you want to obtain: dragées, sticks, tabs, chunks, hollow balls, filled gum… etc. It even depends on whether you want to produce a chewing gum for the confectionery, functional or pharmaceutical market.

Health in Gum®

For the production of medicated chewing gum, Cafosa offers Health in Gum®, a directly compressible powder made using a gum base and sweeteners combination.

Health in Gum® is ready-to-use powder for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical chewing gum to which you can add an active ingredient.

Chewing gums with active ingredients are ideally produced with Health in Gum® as its manufacturing process does not involve high temperatures and its composition has no moisture content. Health in Gum® was created to simplify the manufacturing process of compressed medicated chewing gum in a quick and cost-effective way as it adapts to direct compression with standard tableting equipment.

What is gum base?

Gum base is the ingredient that distinguishes chewing and bubble gum from all other confectionery products. It is an insoluble and non-nutritive substance that enables a chewing gum to be chewed for hours without experiencing substantial changes.

Gum base is made of food-grade polymers, plasticizers, softeners, texturizers and emulsifiers among other ingredients, which impart their unique properties to chewing gum. In order to be food-grade, the gum base has to comply with international requirements such as the FDA 21 CFR 172.615 and the Food Chemicals Codex Specifications.

Every time we develop a new gum base, we focus on the physical properties that the chewing gum should have: elasticity, plasticity, hardness and the desired texture. Optimal performance in the production lines is important because of its impact on productivity.

We have a gum base for every chewing gum you want to produce. We have gum bases for bubble and chewing gums in any format, dragées, sticks, tabs, chunks, hollow balls, filled gum, among others. We can supply you with any gum base that complies with your requirements and, of course, the highest quality standards.
