CHEWING GUM is a popular snack popular around the globe, it is a type of candy that has been designed in such a way that it is supposed to be chewed on but not swallowed. Chewing gum is made up of several things, first is a gum base and into the base, many flavors can be added which are typically sweet and sour. There are substances to soften the gum and there is a powder coating on the gum as well. Its texture is similar to that of rubber.
The history of how Chewing came into being is unclear. During several stages of history, a substance was chewed on, not for flavor but to exercise the muscle of mastication or to freshen up one's breath or sometimes just out of habit.
There is evidence that a type of chewing gum existed 5000 years ago, where evidence of tooth marks was found on a gum made up of tar and other adhesives.
The form in which it is sold varies, it may be in the form of a stick, or a pellet, or a tablet, or even in the form of a shiny ball. They are usually sold in attractive and bright packaging. Some are chunkier varieties and maybe in the shape of cubes or chunks. The chunkier varieties are ideal for bubble blowing.
The gum has substances that are hydrophobic and this allows for it to be chewed for long periods of time and allows for the exercise of mastication to take place. The gum is hydrophobic but it sticks to oil. This property of it sticking to oil is the reason that it can be so sticky on hair, carpets, sidewalks, and other such surfaces.
The flavor release process is slow and throughout the process of chewing, flavors are released slowly. Bulk sweeteners used in gums absorb heat which is the reason behind the feeling of a cooling sensation felt when the gum is chewed upon. Studies have also concluded that there is evidence of improved memory and reduced stress in the chewers of gum. Some varieties are sugar-free and have substances like xylitol and these variations reduce dental cavities.
Chewing gum is one of the oldest and yet one of the most popular snacks around the world, it has properties that deliver a great punch of flavor along with having benefits like reducing stress and improving dental health and hygiene.
