Buy Xylitol Gum Online

Updated on December 12, 2012

Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar substitute that continues to grow in popularity because it doesn't damage teeth like sugar or other sugar substitutes can. There are even studies that suggest that it can stop and partially reverse decay on damaged teeth. Many companies who make gum use Xylitol as part of their batch of sweeteners for gum products and some have even developed gum that use Xylitol exclusively. They market these gum as better for your teeth and overall health while still possessing the same great flavors of products not sweetened with Xylitol. And because gum is so inexpensive to make, there are often great deals to be found when you buy Xylitol gum online in bulk. Like most new things, it may take a little experimenting to see which product works best for you. It also may take some time to adjust to the flavor. But when you do, you'll know that you are doing your teeth a good service by using a gum that is specifically designed to be good for them.

One warning with Xylitol gum and other Xylitol based products: be sure not to let your dog eat these products. Xylitol can make dogs gravely ill, which for some people is the primary drawback of this type of sweetener.

Epic Xylitol Gum

Epic claims to use 100% Xylitol as their gum sweetener and also states that they use more Xylitol per stick than other leading brands.  Flavors include cinnamon, fruit, peppermint, and spearmint and can be purchased in varying quantities.  They claim that the flavor in their gum lasts from 10 to 20 minutes, and while they could have made it last longer, they chose to stick with natural ingredients to provide the most health benefit.

Spry Xylitol Gum

Spry also uses 100% Xylitol to sweeten their gum products.  Flavors include green tea, cinnamon, peppermint, spearmint, and fresh fruit and can be purchased in bulk or by the pack.  While the packaging on some of the larger count containers looks more like a cleaning detergent, you'll have a useful container for storage of odds and ends.

Trident Xylitol Gum

Trident gum uses less than 100% Xylitol as its sugar substitute. The bulk of the sugar substitute used in Trident is Sorbitol, which does not have the same helpful anti-cavity benefits as Xylitol does. Trident gum comes in many, many different flavors including the standard flavors listed above and others including berry, orange, apple, strawberry and citrus, just to name a few.  Many consider Trident to be the tastier, longer-lasting gum, though each individual should evaluate what they are looking for with their piece of gum.

As some dentists continue to suggest that using Xylitol chewing gum is a healthier alternative to normal chewing gum, expect to see wider adoption of these products. Also consider that they are a great alternative for your kids if they insist on chewing gum. Lastly, be sure to look for other products that these brands also sell using Xylitol including mints, rinses, and toothpastes.
