Xlear Introduces All Natural Green Tea Gum with Xylitol
Spry Green Tea Gum exclusively sweetened with all natural xylitol
OREM, Utah – Xlear Inc. – the leading manufacturer of xylitol products, today introduced Spry Green Tea Gum, an all natural gum sweetened exclusively with xylitol and made with natural green tea. Spry green tea gum is part of the Spry Dental Defense System, which includes Spry Coolmint Toothpaste, Spry Coolmint Oral Rinse, Spry Tooth Gel, and Spry mints. Other Spry gum flavors include spearmint, peppermint, cinnamon and fresh fruit.
Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener found in fruit, vegetables and other natural sources. Unlike other sugars and sugar alcohols, xylitol cannot be digested by the bacteria (Mutans Streptococci). As a result, xylitol-rich oral care products, such as Spry Green Tea Flavored Gum have shown to help reduce the risks of tooth decay.
“Our Spry gum products are among the most popular xylitol gums on the market, and we are excited to be able to expand the product line with a great tasting, all natural green tea-flavored gum,” said Blaine Yates, chief executive officer of Xlear, Inc. “The benefits of chewing gum sweetened exclusively with xylitol have been validated many times over, and more and more dental professionals around the world are recommending our gum to their patients. We look forward to consumers’ reaction to our new gum, and are confident that it will become one of their favorites.”
Xylitol-chewing gum has been the subject of a number of in-depth studies since the 1950s and 1960s. On-going studies have indicated that best results can be obtained when xylitol is the only sweetener (as in Spry green tea gum products). When choosing a xylitol product, consumers should look at the ingredient list to ensure that xylitol is the first or second ingredient. If a product has xylitol in a lower position on the ingredient list, it may not contain enough xylitol to be truly effective. Many of the research studies have also shown that best results are obtained when xylitol gum is used three to four times per day; particularly after snacks and meals.
Spry Green Tea Gum is made with a natural plant sourced gum base, and is exclusively sweetened with xylitol, which makes up more than 65 percent of the gum’s total weight. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for Spry gum is $0.99 per 10-piece blister pack.
