This wonderfully flavorful GUM is sweetened exclusively with cavity-fighting xylitol. Each piece contains 1.06 grams of xylitol!
Xylitol -- A Safe Alternative to Sugar
Epic gum is a safe alternative to sugar-based gums and is free of gluten and casein. The corn from which Epic xylitol is made is pharmaceutical grade, non-GMO (genetically modified organisms), and is grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Once the xylitol is made, there are no corn proteins left to provide allergens that could cause a corn-based reaction. The gum does use a soy-based lecithin.
Dental Benefits of Xylitol Use
Along with proper dental hygiene, xylitol can reduce the risk of dental caries and plaque. Xylitol-sweetened products, such as chewing gums and mints, increase salivary flow, preventing dry mouth and aiding in repair of damaged tooth enamel.
"With xylitol use, the quality of the bacteria in the mouth changes and fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria survive on tooth surfaces. Less plaque forms and the level of acids attacking the tooth surface is lowered." California Dental Association
Experts who have studied the effects of xylitol on teeth recommend:
- Daily intake of 6 grams of xylitol for patients at high risk for cavities
- Use of xylitol products that actively stimulate saliva, such as xylitol gum
- Distribution of the daily intake over at least three occasions (e.g. – after meals)
- Use of 100% xylitol sweetened products
TMJ patients avoiding gum chewing may prefer Xylitol Mints, Toothpaste, Oral Rinse and Dental Floss as alternatives to gum as part of a daily xylitol routine.

Epic Xylitol GUM is a favorite with its excellent flavor, chewing consistency and 1.06 grams of xylitol per piece.
This was my first purchase of xylitol gum, after my hygienist recommended I try it to reduce plaque formation. I have excellent oral hygiene practices but continue to have gum recession and progressive gingival pockets. After a week of chewing about 6 pieces of gum a day, following each time I eat, I now find that I get no visible food particles out when I floss and irrigate at night, a remarkable improvement. Will see what thre hygienist says next visit. The gum is tasty and it was shipped out promptly, at the best price I found anywhere. Highly recommend!
We love Epic gum and have found it to be the best Xylitol gum on the market. The service we received from Homestead Market was great. Very fast processing of our order and fast shipping. Received our products in a couple of days.
Love this gum! Best price on the internet!!
This is the only gum we chew! I buy a 1000 pc bag every year; some years I buy two. We usually buy peppermint, but are trying spearmint this time round. We all like it very much, and are looking forward to trying wintergreen next. We all carry containers of this gum in our vehicles so we always have it on hand to freshen our breath or after eating out when we cannot brush. I looked for it cheaper elsewhere, but came back to Homestead Market for quality product and service at a reasonable price. In the 10 or so years that I have been buying gum from here, I have always had great service and quick order shipment. Thank you!
Great for dry mouth and cavity prevention.
Since I began using Epic gum and mints my hygienist has marveled at the improvement in my gums. One area that for years had stayed tender no matter how carefully I brushed now feels perfectly normal. And Homestead Market is always a pleasure to do business with.
This gum is amazing and keeps my teeth healthy. I have been chewing this gum for at least 6-7 years now and no other xylitol gum comes close to the quality of Epic gum. Also homestead market had an AMAZING price and super fast shipping! Couldn't be more pleased!
I buy this gum regularly, and in the larger size because it lasts longer. It has great flavor that last longer than store bought gums, and it's not filled with chemicals and junk! I have always received my product in a quick and timely manner, and the quality is fantastic!
My favorite gum and I don't have to worry about the sugar.
I've been using this product for years, and I'm convinced it's who I've had less cavities since then. Very high quality xylitol gum. I buy in bulk. The shipping from homestead is the cheapest worldwide. Very fast too. Will buy again.
