Plastic-free confectionery

Candy without plastic or pigs

Because we think it is important to know what we eat and give to our children, we have imagined chewing gum and gourmet candies guaranteed without plastic, without animal gelatin, without pollution, and above all... without any compromise on taste!

Simply very good candies!

Why is there petroleum in classic industrial chewing gum? During the 20th century, American manufacturers began to replace sapodilla sap, traditionally used in chewing gum, with an artificial gum base, which was cheaper to produce. In order to mimic the elasticity of sapodilla resin, the manufacturers had to add polymers to their new recipe.

Organic chewing gum

We just went back to basics. We work with local artisans who make small cuts in the bark of trees to collect the sap. This extraction process respects the forest because no trees are felled during this process, and the trees are given time to regenerate before carrying out new sap extractions. Once reworked, this natural gum has a consistency identical to that of classic industrial chewing gum.

And the taste?

We flavor the sapodilla gum with natural mint flavors: spearmint, peppermint and wild mint. This natural gum base is then sweetened with xylitol, a natural sweetener extracted from birch bark.

The chewing gums are then packaged in an FSC-certified recyclable cardboard box, wrapped in a transparent biodegradable film made from vegetable cellulose.

Made entirely of organic matter, Bonsai chewing gum is naturally biodegradable and non-polluting, for a chew that leaves no traces.
