Purify your gum habit with Pur gum

I recently received a selection of Pur gum flavours to try - peppermint, spearmint and pomegranate mint.

The gums are made without artificial flavours or colours. At first I thought little of that angle, but then started to reflect on how much gum I chew, and consequently, how many chemicals I must unknowingly consume. We're all much more conscious of drinking a diet soda than we are of absentmindedly chewing gum.

In Pur gum aspartame is replaced with Xylitol, a natural sweetner that has been found to aide in digestion, and potentially prevent tooth decay. Pur gum is also GMO-free, gluten-free and safe for diabetics, making it seem like the proper choice.

My colleagues at work have been happily 'taste sampling' the Pur gum flavours for me.  Spearmint is the favourite, followed by Peppermint. The taste seems shaper than that of synthetic gum. The gum itself is hard in texture to bit into, but it softens up comfortably.

You can purchase Pur gum at Pusateri's, FreshiiWell.ca, and other health food stores. Give it a whirl.

  1. Truly enjoyed this post Jess especially coming out of "Podcamp Toronto 2011" this past weekend where the issue of "Ethics in Blogging" was all about transparency and disclosure. This was a pretty fair review and something I will now definitely try as a result next time I am in the check out line up at the health food store. Cheers, Andy
