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 ® 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:

Another company was also promoting functional tabletted chewing gum in this massive Exhibition: Harke Pharma ( 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.


Gum base market data and Pharmaceutical Gum 17/07/2012

Today I’d like to share with you some interesting figures about the gum base market and also data about where the chewing gum is produced. Instead of giving you here the figures, I prefer to refer you to the web-site of Cafosa, a leading gum base producer and supplier, which is where I found them.
Following the link below you will find those data and also some information about pharmaceutical chewing gum, including a webinar that took place some time ago.
I think it is really worth to have a look at it.

In other parts of the website you will other interesting information about other aspects of gum bases.
