Chicza Organic Chewing Gum
Do you like to chew gum, but worry about what all the artificial ingredients; e.g. petroleum based polymers, artificial sweeteners, colours and flavourings, used to make your standard chewing gums, are doing to your body?! Well I have found the perfect solution for you, it is called Chicza Organic Chewing Gum, a delicious all natural, organic and biodegradable chewing gum!
Chizca comes is 4 refreshing all natural flavours, Cinnamon (my favourite), Peppermint, Spearmint & Lime. The ingredients and the recipe behind this incredible gum stem all the way back to the Mayan time in Mexico. The latex gum is sustainably extracted from the Chicozapote trees found only in the tropical jungles of south-eastern Mexico.
The latex is extracted and boiled till it becomes sticky and mold-able and then it is sweetened and flavoured using only natural ingredients and shaped into these square little blocks you see in the picture above. The way the latex sap is extracted from each tree is done in a very gentle way that does not destroy, or compromise the tree’s survival.
The other great thing about Chicza gum is that when your finished chewing it doesn’t just sit around like plastic based chewing gums, adding to the masses of waste products suffocating our fragile environment, instead it biodegrades back into the earth.
You will notice that Chicza does have a slightly different texture to plastic based gums, it feels more dense to chew, actually it feels more natural to chew!
*A note for Fructose intolerant people, Chicza does contain some Agave Syrup, which is high in Fructose.
