Aspartame is the man-made synthetic sweetener found in most sugar-free gums, beverages and candies. The FDA lists 92 symptoms reported from the use of aspartame including headaches, dizziness and nausea.
Xylitol is an all-natural sugar alcohol derived from birch and beech trees. It looks and tastes just like sugar, yet has 40% fewer calories and is recommended by dentists to boost oral health. The xylitol we use is sourced sustainably from birch and beech trees in Finland.
6 grams* of Xylitol per day reduces decay-causing bacteria and helps to decrease plaque build-up and stimulates saliva which helps wash away bacteria!
It’s simply a fancy word for natural vitamin E!
Not only to ensure the highest quality ingredients, but also because the use of GMOs are regulated by the government and are against the federal law in Switzerland!
We are naturally sweetened with 100% Xylitol, which is one of the lowest sweeteners on the glycemic index*, so everyone can safely chew PUR without spiking blood sugar levels!
Yes! Both PUR Gum and PUR Mints are completely nut & peanut free. Both are manufactured and produced in a 100% nut & peanut free facility in Switzerland!
The flavors in our gum and mints are all-natural and MSG-free. They are made up of powders and essential oils relevant to each flavor, e.g. Pomegranate Mint uses natural pomegranate powder, derived from the super-fruit itself, as well as real mint extract!
Our gum and mints are NOT pet friendly, especially dogs. Like chocolate, xylitol is toxic for dogs even when consumed in small amounts. It can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), seizures and liver failure.
Many don’t realize that gluten hides in many unsuspecting products. It can linger in artificial flavors and colors, which often aren’t always listed on the label. Beyond that, not all manufacturing facilities are gluten free and some conveyer belts are coated in flour. PUR is 100% gluten free!
