What is gum, and what is it made out of?
What is gum made out of? Is it just a stick of sugar and food coloring? Is it really good for your teeth like some brands say it is? If so, what does gum have in it to make it healthy for your teeth? Note: I asked my friends this question and some of them said whale blubber, or they just said animal skin. But I think they just said that to get me freaked out! But if you can give me a straight answer or opinion that would be great!
It depends on the brand... just look at the ingredients listed on the back of the package. Often it is leaves and other things off trees that make gum that way. Some are sugar-free while others are based entirely off sugar. Some of them actually use dye to make your teeth appear "whiter" if only for a few minutes.
