In addition to my post yesterday about the probiotic gum promoted by Cafosa, I want to mention as well the other gum concepts that have been developed by this company:

  • Health in Gum ® Tryptophan: anti-Stress, containing 50mg of the aminoacid per piece.
  • Health in Gum ® Garcinia Cambogia: for weight management, with 200mg of the plant extract per piece.
  • Health in Gum ® Caffeine: for Sport nutrition, containing 50mg of active per tablet.

The company has a website dedicated to this segment of functional gum made by means of tabletting technology:  www.healthingum.com

Another company was also promoting functional tabletted chewing gum in this massive Exhibition: Harke Pharma (www.harke.com) which has a partnership with Cafosa for this purpose.

Probiotic gum 10/10/2016

I was in the last CPhI fair in Barcelona, the largest pharmaceutical fair in the world.

There I could find some mention to chewing gum in some of the booths.

For instance, the gum base supplier “CAFOSA” was presenting a tabletted chewing gum with probiotic function. The product contains Lactobacillus Patented Strains (AB-Dentalac) as active ingredient and has an oral care claim associated to it.

Extract from Cafosa’s brochure: AB-DENTALAC has bactericidal activity against most common oral pathogens and helps restore the protective oral flora by competing against pathogenic bacteria and disrupting their adhesion to the different tissues in the oral cavity.
