Hi everyone!!  I am new and had a question about gum....  I am obsessed with it.  I can't get enough.  Can the Xylitol in gum make me bloated?  I have eaten on plan all day (I am an O nonnie) and I am bloated.  What gives??  Gum or Splenda in Nestle water drink??

Thanks!!

I haven t had gum in years!
welcome to the club!

Dr D once said that Xylitol causes extreme flatulence in about 50% of the population.

napa4us, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forums!!  
I chew gum w/ xylitol all the time ........ it doesnt bother me, but we are all individuals, so what doesn't bother me, may bother you. If you give it up for a week and the bloating goes away, that will be your answer. I hope for your sake it isnt the culprit if you like to chew gum because there aren't many good choices out there.
As for the Nestle water drink, I'd ditch it if it were me. I would not drink or eat anything w/ Splenda/Sucralose in it.          as for the gums, (if youre talking about guar gum, locust bean gum, xanthan gum and the like) I try to avoid those too because they, well, gum things up.

Hey napa4us...welcome to the forum and the BTD way of life.  As an O nonnie I used to be hooked on gum myself.   Even with a TMJ.  The ones I used to eat had aspartame in it so out it went.  Not sure what is in the ones nowadays.  I would say as a nonnie be careful of the 'sugar' that is used in the gum you chew.   As Ron-O-Non says...'sugar' is our poison.

Hey Guys!
Thanks so much for your reply!!  It has been tough going for me...  all my favorite things are out..  coffee, diet coke, GIN !  And now I need to cut out splenda and cut back on my Trident gum.

My mouth gets so dry without chewing something.  Does anyone else have dry mouth?  I live in Utah, so it is very dry here.

Talk to you soon.

Quoted from napa4us
cut back on my Trident gum.


I went to Trident's website to see if Xylitol is the ONLY sweetener used in their gums. and since I'm not seeing any ingred, that makes me suspicious. they show nutrition info   but no ingred.   to date, any gums i've found w/ xylitol, also contains artificial sweeteners.  
Spry makes gum containing xylitol. it's what I chew. doesnt bother me......glad too, cause I likes to chew me some gum as well.

There are several gums that have 100% xylitol as the sweetener.  Your body actually produces its own xylitol.  Most xylitol will be made from corn husks and the like but I feel for dental health, weaning off gum, etc, it is a good choice.  

Anyway, all the brands have avoids in them like gum arabic.

Spry, Epic, etc are some of the brands.

Oh, and regarding the bloating, yes it will cause gas and/or blow outs (unexpected release of feces) but you can build up your tolerance.  The gums don't last very long...so finding a new habit would be a good idea!

 Thanks for all your replies!!

Can you only find Spry in a health food store?

Does the Xylitol made from Birch trees (not corn) cause any less intestinal trouble?  Thanks!

that s great news napa!

Quoted Text
xylitol is a byproduct of the plywood industry;
it is extracted from birch
cellulose by an energy-intensive chemical
process.  It is linked to cancer
and urinary kidney stones in animal studies.
xylitol ... is a 'natural' sugar found first in Finland in the sap of beach/
poplar trees.

why don t you google it?
you might come up with more studies done on animals.
like chromium picolinate, causes cancer in rats, but doesn t necessarily do the same in people, unless you overdose.

Thanks for the thread Napa!!  I was just chewing some Trident (literally) as I was reading this.  It's been spit out, and soon to be thrown out next time I walk passed my purse.  I didn't think just chewing gum was enough to cause damage, since we're just chewing...I didn't realize that we absorb that much of the junk that's in the gum.  Kinda scary.

yes and the xylitol used in Spry is from the cob and stalk. so it is an individual preference as to whether you would use that or not.
