REVIEW: PÜR GUM Spearmint

20 comments
Hello everyone :)

Today's review is a little bit different than usual, but I wanted to write it, hope some of you will enjoy it :) I'll be writing about the chewing gums, yes, chewing gums :D

Why I wanted to write this review? Because this chewing gums are special - they are VEGAN, NUT FREE, DIABETIC FRIENDLY, SOY FREE, GLUTEN FREE, NON-GMO and the most important to me - ASPARTAME FREE. See for yourself, basically all the chewing gums in stores contain Aspartame!


I actually got mine for free because I liked a photo on the companies Facebook page, but they didn't know I have a blog, so nobody expected a review from me ;) This needed to be said, so you understand this is my honest opinion :) For Slovenian readers, you can buy it on Kama.si and they cost 1,85€ for a pack of 9 gums.


Since I know about the dangers of Aspartame, I'm constantly avoiding it, which is to be honest quite hard, since it is everywhere. Read this article -  (a teen might have died because of chewing gum):

What is Aspartame? It's one of the most common artificial sweeteners in use today. It's used in many foods and beverages because it is about 200 times sweeter than sugar, so much less of it can be used to give the same level of sweetness. Whenever product is labeled "sugar free" that usually means it has an artificial sweetener in place of sugar.


Aspartame accounts for over 75% of the adverse reactions to food additives  (reported to the FDA). Many of these reactions are VERY serious, including seizures and death!

Part of the Aspartame dangers are: headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, ...

The following chronic illnesses can also be triggered by the use of Aspartame: brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, mental retardation, lymphoma, birth defects, ...


Back to the chewing gums ;) Me and my boyfriend both tested them and we agree that it tastes like a regular chewing gum, nothing is off with the taste because it doesn't contain all the bad ingredients ;) I got the mint flavour and I like the fresh breath it gives, however it does lose the taste after about an hour, but to be honest that's the same with all chewing gums.

These contain only 6 ingredients:  Xylitol (which looks and tastes identical to sugar and is proven to promote oral health by reducing cavities by 33% with regular use and also contains 40% less calories than table sugar), Gum Base, Gum Arabic, Natural Flavors, Carnauba Wax, Tocopherols.

To conclude, Aspartame is one of the most toxic sweeteners put into our food today and I am tired of paying companies to poison me! The PÜR GUM chewing gums are an awesome alternative to the regular chewing gums and I would totally recommend them to everyone! I can't wait to get more flavours :)

Let me know what do you think, do you like this post, something different ha ;)

Hope you have a great day, Kisses,
Katja
