Then it is further refined by separating dissolved particles ina centrifuge, and further filtered. Clear base, still hot and melted, is thenput into mixing vats. Other ingredients that may be added
include: powdered sugar (the amount and grain size of which determinesthe brittleness of the resulting gum), corn syrup and/orglucose (whichserve as humectants and coat the sugar particles to stabilizetheir suspension and keep the gum flexible), various softeners,foodcolourings, flavourings, preservatives and other additives.The homogenized mixture is then poured onto cooling belts and cooledwith cold air. Extrusion, optional rolling and cutting, and other mechanicalshaping operations follow. The chunks of gum are then put aside to set for24 to 48 hours.Coated chewing gums then undergo other operations. The chunks arewrapped with optional undercoating for better binding with outer layersthen are immersed into liquid sugar. The pellets are then coloured andcoated with a suitable glazing agent, usually a wax. Thecoating/glazing/colour on gum is sometimes derived from animal-basedsources such as resinous glaze derived from an insect or beeswax.While gum was historically sweetened with cane sugar, xylitol, corn syrupor other natural sweeteners, a large number of brands now use artificialsweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose, or acesulfame potassium. Non-coated varieties of gum are often covered in sweetened marble dust toprevent the wrapper from sticking to the product.According to the Indian labeling laws the box would have informationabout the:NameIngredientsNutritional InformationMedicinal or Nutritional ClaimsDate Tagging: Use by Date Best before DateStorage ConditionsBusiness Name and AddressPlace of OriginInstruction for Use
