Vegan Gum?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I had a half eaten pack of Stride gum that I had bought before going vegan(tomorrow will be a week!) and I saw that there was animal products in it so of course I tossed it. What gums are vegan friendly i.e.brands/specific flavors?

I think some of Orbits gums are vegan, but I'm not sure. I don't chew gums like Orbit, Trident, Dentyne, ect. because of artificial flavoring, colors, and sweeteners.



Ecodent Between! gum is one of my favorites brands of chewing gum. It comes in three different sugar-free flavors- wintergreen, cool mint, and cinnamon- and is completely vegan. I buy it off of Amazon in 12 packs.

gum has glycerine in it- sometimes thats vegetable in source- some packets even label it as such. its also sometimes got stuff like shellac/confectioners glaze on it, little crystals made of whoknowswhat sprinkled on there, liquid centres of dubiousness, and so on.

Dentyne fire is vegan I'm pretty sure. It has vegetable glycerin and no aspartame.

I believe all of orbits gum is vegan except for the one with those little blue dots in it, I forget what it's called, but it's a minty gum with blue dots that contains gelitin....all the other ones (not sure about the ultra new ones though) are vegan.

liquid centres of dubiousness,



teehee. Addie, if memory serves me correctly I believe it had glycerine. It didn't say what the source was so I gave it to my omni sister. Sadly, it was very tasty!

Question: I'm dumb, but why isn't regular floss vegan?

I know this thread is old. But, I did a google search to see if Stride is vegan.



I got all kinds of mixed answers from various websites. Therefore, I emailed their customer service via their website. I asked if any of the ingredients within the label (glycerin and gum base specifically) were derived from any animal sources or by-products. I also specifically asked about Stride Mega Mystery, as you must select a specific flavor. But, I asked an open question about ALL of their gum flavors.



Their response:



"Thank you for contacting us about Stride Mega Mystery. Your comments and inquiries are appreciated because they provide valuable feedback about our brands.



There are no animal by-products in this gum.



Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We hope that you will continue to purchase and enjoy our products.



Sincerely,



Consumer Relations"



Just wanted to add that to this thread, in case anyone else (like me) happens to google this in the future.



So...take or leave their answer. It's up to the chewer.

Very good reason to update this debate!
I found Stride ****mint (left pack at work!) with B6 and B12!
I was searching for vegan quality on google, and it led to this thread!

As long as the above-"no animal by-products" is still in effect, what a great way to supplement! 25% RDA of B12!
Very tasty.

I cannot possibly imagine what word was censored out there. It sounds like some very angry mint if it's got a curse word in the name. :P

The artificial sweeteners in sugar-free gum give me really bad, extremely painful bloating and gas. I can't chew one piece without being in agony for the rest of the day. I can only chew "regular" gum with sugar.

B-Fresh has Xylitol which isn't artificial, prevents cavities, and the gum has b12 in it and it's labeled vegan.
