When we talk about functional gum, one of the companies that offers a wider range of products is NTP Biotech, based on Italy. I visited their stand and thank Mr Pietro Porrini for his time.

This company produces gum by compression/tabletting and the results are excellent. They are specialists on the addition of functional ingredients in the formulation and I was surprised by the number of functionalities that they cover. The reason for that, is that the company is part of the group Sintal dietetics, specialist in food supplements (not only in gum, for which they have the brand GUMD’E) but also in capsules, liquid drops and other presentations. I already mentioned them in a post back in 2018 that you can find here.

NTP Biotech is open to private label production.

I got samples of the following chewing gums:

  • Body Drain
  • Tonus Gum
  • Energy Gum
  • Diet Plan
  • No Acid Gum
  • No Stress

In this type of product, obtaining a proper taste is a difficult task, because of the unpleasant taste of some of the active ingredients (typical example is the Caffeine in energy gum). So when this is achieved, the task of the formulating team must be praised!

 

MD’E GUM – Italy 22/05/2018

The italian company SINTAL GROUP offers in their portoflio an interesting range of food supplements, but the ones of interest for us are the functional gums that come under the brand “MD’E GUM” (www.gumde.eu). Using the tabletting technology, which avoids the typical high temperatures of the traditional extrusion production method, they have a complete range of varieties, which includes:

  • Boost immuno gum: non viable lactic ferments + Echinacea angustifolia + Zn
  • ACE family gum: A, C, E
  • Chol control gum: Red Yest rice, betaine, B6, B12
  • New Folic gum: Folic acid
  • Anti Ageing gum: C, E, resveratrol, CoQ10
  • No stress gum: L-Tryptophan, Lemon balm, scullap herb
  • Diet Plan: Bitter orange, garcinia, gymnema, griphonia
  • Body Drain gum: Orthosiphon, green tea, pinneaple (bromelain)
  • Omega Gum: DHA, EPA
  • Energy Gum: Caffeine (200mg per serving, which consists of 4 pieces of gum

The chew of the product is good, avoiding the crumbliness of some tabletted gums that I have seen in the market. The information related to the products contains data related to the release of the active ingredients, which enhances the reliability and professionality of the product.
