Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9926485A1] Chewing gums containing trehalose and methods of making such gums are disclosed. In one embodiment, the gum comprises about 5 % to about 95 % gum base, about 0.1 % to about 10 % flavoring agent and trehalose, the trehalose being part or all of the bulk sweetener in the gum. The trehalose provides the gum with unique properties, and the gum is non-cariogenic. In other embodiments, the trehalose is codried with other sweeteners or coevaporated with a plasticizing syrup to produce unique sweetening ingredients and syrups for gum. The trehalose may also be provided in the form of a rolling compound on the gum, or used to form a hard coating for a coated pellet gum.
