 Also Beware Of 

Gum, a sweet treat, but at what cost? Most conventional brands of gum have artificial sweeteners, that although they are touted as “diet” may actually be making you fat. Orbit Gum contains THREE separate artificial sweeteners as well as potential GMO ingredients.

At Naturally Savvy, we prefer 100% natural gum from our sponsor Glee Gum. Their gum base is predominantly “chicle” not a synthetic gum base like many other conventional brands and all the other ingredients are disclosed on the label. Glee Gum is Naturally Savvy Approved because it is made from 100% natural ingredients with no artificial colors, flavours, sweeteners, or preservatives.

Here’s more on what makes Glee Gum different from other natural gum:

  • 9 flavors, including kid-friendly varieties
  • Affordably priced
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • FAIRTRADE Certified (6 classic flavors)
  • Sugar-free flavors sweetened with xylitol from American birch & beech trees (not corn)
  • Made by a WBENC-certified woman-owned business
  • Allergy-friendly, gluten-free, and Feingold Diet accepted
  • Recycled & recyclable packaging (no blister packs)
