Xylichew has been producing organic chewing gum since 1997, and currently has five new flavors: Spearmint, Fruit, Black Licorice, Cinnamon and Peppermint. But flavors are only part of the appeal of this gum—as Xylichew’s whole line is sweetened with Birch Xylitol, a natural sweetener that helps slow the rate and amount of acid production in the mouth, reducing the acid-producing bacteria that can erode tooth enamel.

Xylichew is maufactured entirely in the United States, with the xylitol being extracted exclusively from sustainable U.S. birch trees, and the gum being made in U.S. facilities as well. Xylichew is also vegan, naturally colored, non-GMO and gluten-free, and includes sunflower lecithin. Each pack of Xylichew comes with 12 pieces of gum.
