1. Can mastiha be produced elsewhere as well?
Mastic trees (lentisks) yield mastiha only in the southern part of Chios Island. That mechanism has not been fully explained yet. It surely has to do, though, with the microclimate combined with pedological characteristics. Of course, trees of that kind are found in many parts of the world and especially around the Mediterranean Basin. Some of those trees do produce a resin that looks like Chios mastiha, without having though either the beneficial properties characterizing Chios mastiha, or its aroma or its flavour. Therefore, Chios Mastiha produced out of that specific tree variety (var Chia) has been qualified as a PDO product.
2. Is ELMA chewing gum good for the stomach?
A series of researches that have taken place in various research centres have come to the conclusion that mastiha positively contributes to the prevention and cure of illnesses related to the peptic system (ulcer, dyspepsia, etc.). Consequently, chewing natural mastiha or, to a lesser extent, ELMA chewing gum is a very good solution for all those confronted with stomach problems but also for those interested in keeping their peptic system healthy.
3. What else is mastiha good for?
Mastiha’s action has been registered for thousands of years in numerous medical and historic reports. Year by year, all its medicinal properties are progressively confirmed by modern and valid studies concerning its antimicrobial and antioxidant action, its action against cancerous cells, against Crohn`s disease, its contribution to oral hygiene, etc. More…
4. ELMA chewing gum has a strange texture and is rather hard, why is that?
Because it contains a significant amount of natural mastiha. The more natural a product is, the more difficult it is to standardize its characteristics. Consequently, natural mastiha has partly conveyed its behaviour (as to chewing) to the final product, in this case ELMA chewing gum.
It would be worth mentioning at this point that according to relevant studies, chewing process actually strengthens the gums inside the oral cavity and improves dental health.
5. ELMA chewing gum does not keep its flavour for long, why is that?
Because its flavour comes from the mastiha oil it contains (natural mastiha essential oil) which is unfortunately very volatile, meaning that it is easily evaporated. Duration of flavour in a chewing gum is a parametre that preoccupies all chewing gum industries. Unfortunately, a great majority of related products on the market contain almost exclusively artificial flavourings that have nothing to do with the source-product mentioned (peppermint, cinnamon, etc.). ELMA chewing gum contains 100% natural flavours. The choice is yours. We unconditionally recommend that you read carefully all the ingredients of the products you consume.
6. Is it possible that an over-consumption of natural mastiha or ELMA chewing gum can have any side-effects?
No side-effect whatsoever has ever been reported either in historic or modern times, regarding natural mastiha’s consumption.
As for the chewing gum, because of the polyols (natural based sweeteners) contained therein, an over-consumption (over 25 tablets per day) may have a laxative effect on sensitive people.
7. Where can I find information leaflets for mastiha and its products?
You can find information leaflets in every MastihaShop or directly at Chios Mastiha Growers Association. Of course, we would advise you to go through our web pages where you can find quite a lot of useful information. More about that at the unit “Publications”.
