They have sugar-alcohol, I believe. Not the best thing in the world for you, but the effect it has on BG is minimal. Keep on chewing (I do)!:)

I would be more worried about the cals in the tooth paste brah, the companies really do abuse the whole "we dont have to put nutri info on the tubes" thing.

That oral mucosal delivery of calories IS rather devious.

Apparently chewing gum makes you burn 11 calories per hour...sugar free of course is best choice.

ive seen several articles that say chewing gum burns about 10 calories per hour. your average serving of sugar free gum is 5 calories. chew it for an hour and the stuffs like celery, more calories burned eatin it than ya actually get from it!

The absorption of calories is also highly amplified when one uses a tooth brush and forcefully rubs the tooth paste in the gums.
People neglect this type of information quite often and then wonder why america is over weight!

What they neglected to tell you was that you have to chew 6 pieces at a time :cool:
