The Advantages of Mints over Chewing Gum


The Advantages of Mints over Chewing Gum

Chewing gums and mints are both popular options when it comes to freshening your breath. In this blog, you will find out why it is worth reaching for mints instead of chewing gum in some cases. 

Background of chewing gum

Chewing gum consists of elastomers, waxes and resins. The most common elastomer is rubber, which can be natural or synthetic. Producing rubber can be very time-consuming. In addition, petroleum is used as an ingredient in the production of chewing gum, which is known to be harmful to the environment. The gum must be discarded after chewing as it should not be swallowed. All of this, therefore, makes chewing gum the less ecological choice.

Benefits and ingredients of Mints

Mints, in the form of peppermint drops, have been around since the 19th century when they were first made by pharmacists as breath fresheners. So essentially mints were created to make breath smell better. They are also said to help with certain health problems such as stomach pains and headaches.

Our Compass Mints have many benefits like promoting dental health. They not only taste good and intense but keep the taste lasting for a long time. The choice of high-quality ingredients and natural fruit makes this possible. In comparison, chewing gum taste often fades completely after a short time.

So next time after a meal grab your favourite mints!
