PÜR Gum recently sent us a few samples of their gum to try out. The gum is available in several flavours including peppermint, pomegranate mint, spearmint and wintergreen. We tested out all the flavours. Out of the four flavours the pomegranate mint one is our favourite.
PÜR Gum is vegan friendly, aspartame-free and sweetened with xylitol, which is a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol found in corn cobs and stalks. It’s also naturally coloured and flavoured and free of genetically modified organisms. It contains no gluten and is safe for people with celiac disease and any other wheat and gluten intolerance. Each piece of gum contains 1 gram of xylitol and 2.4 calories.
Xylitol is a natural insulin stabilizer, meaning it doesn't cause a spike in blood sugar and helps reduce sugar and carbohydrate cravings. It also helps to restore proper alkaline/acid balance in the mouth, inhibits plaque formation and helps prevent tooth decay.
I haven’t bought chewing gum for more years than I care to remember, but if I saw the PÜR Gum available then I would buy a packet or two… especially as it’s vegan friendly.
It’s Competition Time!
We have three sets of prizes featuring a packet of each of the four flavours of PÜR Gum to give away (that’s 4 packs of PÜR Gum per prize).
