So, what is trimellitic anhydride copolymer?

Trimellitic anhydride copolymer is a chemical compound commonly used as a food ingredient in the manufacturing of chewing gums, candies, and other confectionery products. It acts as a binder and enhances the product's texture and consistency, making it a popular choice for manufacturers. This copolymer is derived from trimellitic anhydride and ethylene glycol, which are both safe for consumption in small amounts.
