Have you heard the story of that small hometown team that wins the championship against the 10x reigning champion against all odds? How about when Team USA beat the USSR in the 1980 Winter Olympics that led to a Gold Medal in Men's Hockey? Epic Xylitol Gum is sort of like that; just an unassuming underdog that kicks major corporate conglomerates to the curb with our top-shelf Xylitol Gum.
We only use the bare essential ingredients in our gum; no fillers, no chemicals, no artificial sweeteners. Other brands? Not the case. Epic gum contains oodles of Xylitol; in fact, it’s the only thing that sweetens our gum. Other brands? Not the case (ever heard of aspartame? Yikes).
No way! Non, Nie, Não, No, Nej, いいえ, Nein, 不是 (let us know if we missed your native language and we’ll add it in!). Epic Xylitol Gum, along with all other Epic products, do not and will never contain aspartame, sugar, or other harmful ingredients. Other brands try to be sneaky and sugar coat (ha, get it?) their ingredients list by using words like fructose (ew), dextrose (gross), and sucrose (blah). See the next question below for an exact breakdown of the ingredients that make up Epic Xylitol Gum and why we use them!
Some of our customers say we must use a sprinkle of rainbow dust, a dash of sunshine, and a bottle of the feeling you get on a beautiful, dewy spring morning. To those people, we awkwardly smile, nod our head, and close the door slowly… then lock it. In reality, we put nothing but the bare essentials in our Epic Xylitol Gum to ensure you get an all-natural, great-tasting, cavity-crushing piece of gum; every. single. time. Here’s a comprehensive list of every ingredient we use in our gum and why we use it. You don’t even have to take off your shoes to count ‘em:
- Xylitol: Sweetens the taste, but mainly for the cavity-crushing punch your smile deserves.
- Gum Base: It's what gives the gum its chew.
- Natural Flavors: All-natural extracts and flavors to ensure that every bite of Epic Gum is delicious.
- Sunflower Lecithin: Emulsifier used to ensure all our ingredients stay perfectly mixed. Other brands use soy, but we like to accommodate our friends with soy allergies.
- Gum Arabic: Sap from the Arabic tree for keeping every piece together.
- Calcium Carbonate: A naturally-occurring mineral used as a coloring in favor of artificial bleaching processes.
- Carnauba Wax: Harvested from carnauba palm leaves and used to give each piece of Epic Gum a finishing shine.
Most mainstream gums stretch out the length of their flavor by using aspartame or other lab-brewed chemical concoctions. At Epic, we refuse to cut such corners, instead preferring to use only ingredients that are clean, healthy, and natural. After all, our kids eat this stuff! So next time you’re chewing a piece of big-brand gum that becomes as hard as a rock in your mouth before the flavor runs out… remember that Epic Xylitol Gum is here to offer a more pleasant, natural fix for your gum craving.
Absolutely it is! Now, are you ready for some epic Gluten-Free dad jokes? What do you call a fake gluten-free noodle? An Impasta. You know, gluten-free people get a lot of hate, but we respect them for going against the grain! All jokes aside, I know a gluten-free restaurant that has an incredible top secret bakery; too bad it’s on a knead-to-dough basis! (Okay, we’re done.)
Does a bear poop in the woods? (where it belongs and not in captivity, roaming free and enjoying every beautiful aspect that nature has to offer our extraordinary planet). Epic Xylitol Gum is 100% Vegan! No animal products here. Where are our #WFPB people at?
One piece of Epic Xylitol Gum contains 1.06 grams of Xylitol. That means that you’re getting an amazing bang for your buck and the perfect method of consuming your dentist-recommended 6-10 grams of xylitol per day. Not to mention the strongest defense against cavity-causing bacteria to boot!
Yes. Xylitol is toxic for dogs. You might be asking yourself, “well, why is it safe for me but toxic to my fur baby?” While our dogs are, in fact, our soulmates, and we often treat them better than our relatives (sorry, uncle Joe), there are key differences in how our respective bodies react to xylitol. It simply boils down to the fact that the biochemical response to xylitol between humans and dogs is very different. If Fido does consume a large number of xylitol products, untreated, this can quickly be life-threatening. So make sure you keep any items that contain xylitol stored up where your doggos can’t reach them.
