Products with gluten are not used in the facility, in the machinery, or in the actual product itself.

DOES CHEWING GUM REALLY TAKE SEVEN YEARS TO DIGEST?
You’ve most likely heard the old wives’ tale that if you swallow a piece of gum, it will stay in your body for seven years. While you shouldn’t make it a habit of swallowing gum, Michael F. Picco, M.D. sets the record straight. “If you swallow gum, it’s true that your body can’t digest it. But the gum doesn’t stay in your stomach. It moves relatively intact through your digestive system and is excreted in your stool.”
CHEWING GUM WAS ALL THE RAGE IN THE STONE AGE
Chewing gum has been around in one form or another for thousands of years: tooth-marked lumps of birch bark tar have been found in Europe that date back to the Mesolithic period of the Stone Age. Fast forward to present day and 173.41 million Americans chew gum (via U.S. Census Bureau).
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN MODERN DAY CHEWING GUM?
Most gums are based on a synthetic equivalent, a rubbery material called polyisobutylene that’s also used in the manufacture of inner tubes. Polyisobutylene is mixed with plasticizers and materials – all food grade – to make the gum mixture chewable. Via Science Focus
