It is not usual to find chewing gums coming from Australia, but this one is even more unusual: Gum using mastic as gum base. This would go together with the current trend for natural gum bases (several posts earlier in this website) but unlike the natural gum base from chicle /sapodilla tree from Mexico, this product uses the resin from “Pistacia Genus”, a type of mastic gum.

Mastic gum is common in the Middle East, with examples in Turkey and Lebanon but this product made in Australia by Australian Food and Pharmaceutical Industries (AFPI) is different. It comes in flip top boxes and a range of flavours (original mastic, mint, cinnamon) and also a “Zero” version formulated only with mastic gum + beeswax and mint oil. Note that no sweetener is used. This gives a very special taste and texture to the product. There is even a version with probiotics (Organic Kombucha culture)!

All of them are labelled as “organic”.

Thank you to Dr Sharifi for his explanations and time during Gulfood/Dubai.

Let me introduce the finalist to the “most innovative health, wellness and plant based product” during the recent Gulfood exhibition that took place in Dubai. I thank Dr Farkas for his time to explain the features of the product, which is in fact quite unique. Its benefits go around Lavender oil, but it is completed with vitamin B3, B5, B7 and Zinc. It claims to contribute “to functioning of mind, psyche and energy metabolism”.

It comes in blister pack with 10 pieces in each sleeve.

Interesting product from an Austrian company (quite unique as well in the chewing gum industry) although produced outside the country. See their website www.happygum.info
