THE HISTORY OF PRINTED CHEWING GUM
9000 years ago tree resins were used as a kind of replacement, as well as latex, grass, leaves, grains and waxes.
In Ancient Greece, mastic gum was used, also containing resin of trees to both clean their teeth and for fresh breath (some things never change!).
This was further promoted by Indians to American colonists and were soon sold on American soil (1800s). The use of sweetened paraffin wax was also a common alternative.
Modern ingredients evolved from a chicle-based gum. Manufacturers turned to synthetic varieties to meet the high demands.
With the increase in demand, an Ohio dentist used rubber to create a gum product for jaw exercise and gum stimulation. William F. Semple was honoured for this work with the first patent to manufacture the modern form in December 1869.
