Chewing Gum – Direct Compression Tablets
Tableted chewing gum makes using our proprietary direct compression process a better delivery mechanism for active ingredients and supplements than conventionally manufactured chewing gum. We are the only company that makes its own powdered gum, which allows us to custom formulate a compressed gum product that meets our customers’ requirements – and we develop it quickly.
Chewing gum products have many advantages versus other oral dosage forms:
- Fast acting: many times faster absorption than tablets or capsules
- Convenient and discreet: does not require any liquid for swallowing
- Widely acceptable and very familiar to consumers
- High bioavailability of ingredients: avoid hepatic first pass metabolism
- Increased compliance in people with swallowing difficulties like children
Chewing gum products made using direct compression tableting offers significant advantages over conventionally manufactured gum products made using an extrusion process:
- Active ingredients released faster
- Active ingredients remain active unlike extrusion products that use high heat during the process which can inactivate the actives
- High content uniformity of active ingredients and supplements from tablet to tablet
