Bursting the bubble gum myth

 

When you swallow chewing gum, does it really take seven years to digest?

 

Nope! According to officials at Wrigley, makers of Big Red and Juicy Fruit, it only takes a few days to digest when you accidentally swallow a wad of the chewy stuff.

 

Chewing gum consists of five basic ingredients, four of which dissolve in your mouth—flavor, sweeteners, corn syrup and softeners. The fifth ingredient, gum base, doesn’t dissolve but eventually passes through your system undigested, much like fiber.
