Trident is one of the world’s leading chewing gum companies. They offer an extensive line of sugar free flavors and are proud of their use of xylitol as a sweetener (they put it right on their label!). Xylitol is actually a sugar alcohol that protects teeth against decay by preserving a neutral PH balance in your mouth. Trident uses a mixture of sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners to reduce the use of fattening sugar. Xylitol is directly extracted from plants and berries making it a safe glucose alternative. Although sugar alcohols do contain some calories, the calorie count is much lower than the regular sugar that is added to most foods.
Originally, Trident used sugar as a main ingredient in their gum, but were unhappy about the correlation between the chewing of sugary gum and the increase in cavity development. After the discovery of artificial sweeteners in the 1960’s, Trident decide to solely make sugarless gum that helped maintain mouth hygiene. In comparison to Juicy Fruit® and Hubba Bubba Max®, Trident uses no sugar, unlike its two full sugar competitors, and therefore has five times less calories! Not only does Trident gum not cause cavities or other degenerative effects to the chewer’s mouth, but it also has been shown to help prevent new cavities from forming.
So Many Yummy Flavors
Another reason why people prefer Trident over other sugarless brands like Orbit®, Extra® and Wrigley’s® is due to Trident’s large variety of flavors. They produce the flavors that all of America loves.
Fruity twist flavors
These flavors have gained in popularity with the public over time making Trident the “go-to” gum for millions of people around the world.
But Wait! There’s More!
Did you also know that chewing gum can be a great way to avoid snacking? The act of chewing actually reduces the craving for food by fooling your body into thinking it’s eating. This then allows people to have an easier time sticking to their diets. Just remember, “Four out of five dentists surveyed recommend sugarless gum for their patients who chew gum.” So what gum are you going to chew?
