So, what is gum base?

Gum base is a versatile food ingredient that is commonly used in the manufacturing of chewing gum. It serves as the structural backbone of the gum, providing the elasticity and texture that consumers expect. Gum base is typically made from a blend of natural and synthetic materials, such as rubber, resins, waxes, and fillers. The specific composition of the gum base can vary depending on factors such as the desired chewiness, flavor, and shelf life of the finished product. Despite its name, gum base is not itself a gum, but rather the key ingredient that allows for the creation of this beloved confectionery.
