What's Inside

So, what goes into our supercool, Superfast Energy Gum™?

Well, the technical list is below, but as we wouldn’t expect you to all be science whizzes and know what all those things actually do, we thought we’d explain it a bit more simply. So here goes

Sweeteners

(specifically, xylitol, sorbitol, aspartame, acesulfame K and sucralose) Not so hard to grasp, these ones – they’re what we put in to keep the sugar out. That means a low-calorie gum which won’t hurt your teeth.

Gum base

That’s the stuff that makes it chewy. Kind of important in a gum, we thought.

Flavourings

We’ve added some menthol to give it that cool and refreshing taste we all enjoy, and as well as freshening your breath, it helps to make you feel even more awake too.

Caffeine

There aren’t many of us who aren’t aware of the stimulating properties of caffeine. It’s naturally present in masses of plants and can be found in tea, coffee, chocolate and cola drinks, to name but a few. It helps to sharpen focus and it keeps the brain alert. Which is exactly what we’re trying to help you do with our snazzy new gum.

Colours

Just to help it look pretty!

Vitamins & Antioxidants

It’s not just the caffeine that helps keep you alert. We’ve added a selection of helpful vitamins and antioxidants to our gum to give you added benefits. There are lots of B vitamins in there, such as Niacin (also known as vitamin B3) pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folic acid, thiamine B1 and vitamin B12 are considered essential human nutrients, known for the positive effects on the body, helping out with cardiovascular and neurological health, formation of blood, cell growth and metabolism. In short, your body needs them, so we’ve made sure they’re in there for you.
