Xylitol -- A Safe Alternative to Sugar
Epic gum is a safe alternative to sugar-based gums and is free of gluten and casein. Calcium Carbonate has replaced the Titanium Dioxide formerly found in Epic Gum. 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

Call your veterinarian immediately if you suspect your dog has consumed any amount of xylitol.
Epic Xylitol Gum is a favorite with its excellent flavor, chewing consistency and 1.06 grams of xylitol per piece.
Aspartame free, good for your teeth and a strong flavor which is lacking in some other brands of xylitol products.
Good price. I don't chew gum that often but when I do I chew both the cinnamon flavor and the fruity one. The chewy texture in xylitol gums don't last as long as normal gum, it gets a bit stiff after awhile and the flavor goes. But it works for my occasional needs.
Excellent! I've tried both this flavor and the spearmint, but my personal favorite is the peppermint. They are all good and have the xylitol content I want for dental protection.
son tells us it taste like juicy fruit.
This product was better than I anticipated. The flavor is great, the xylitol content is exactly what I wanted, the delivery was fast and the shipping cost was very reasonable. I will definitely be ordering this again from Homestead Market.
Excellent quality in all respect but I find it a bit too spicy. Maybe it should come in a more gentle flavor as an option for those who do not tolerate strong flavors.
