Chewing Gum and Salicylates

Cleure gum is the only sal-safe one I know of that has no plant oils. They use artificial flavors, and no mint in them.

Trident Chewing gum was just found to have mint in the fruit flavors, so please don’t risk this! Sprye gum uses plant oils for flavor, this could block you!

Thanks to guaigroup for this quote from an admin (used with permission),

“the problem is in that word Flavouring“. A lot of chewing gums, drinks, and so on designed for today’s market have mint or menthol added as “flavour enhancers”. They put menthol in grape flavor and mint in orange, just for two examples.” Anne-Louise
Don’t chance it on this, it’s NOT worth it!!!! If you wont try Cleure gum, chew on some celery or beef jerky if you must chew on something! πŸ™‚

**Please note that salicylate sensitivity plays a role in this! My website and support group are VERY sal careful, more so than the guaigroup and the book even! We have found certain things to block the salicylate sensitive people (such as butters, gums, certain toothpastes,Stevia, vinegar) and want to be extremely cautious with what we say is safe or not. Anybody who is being mapped by Dr St Amand or Dr Congdon is a different story, as they have someone who can help them to know when they are blocking. The rest of us who don’t have mappers have to be SUPER diligent so that we don’t block, since we have nobody to catch it if we do!**

    Hello Christine I’m been trying to search if ( wrigleys extra bubblegum flavour) is salicylate free ?
    I’m also a little confused about ( gum ) I understand that gum blocks, but research says most gum products are made from plastic now days and not the gum from a tree !!!

Leave a lovely comment! I read and respond to all comments here and love to hear from you! <3
