How is Chicza gum made?



  1. 0 Votes

    Chicza gun, an organic rainforest gum, is the first organic, completely biodegradable gum.  It is made by boiling latex from trees (sustainably).  This same process has been used for centuries by the Mexican peoples.  Every brick of gum can be traced back to the specific tree from which it was harvested.  The attached website should be able to answer any other questions you have about it.

    Chicza gum is made by boiling the latex (milky sap) of the chicozapote tree (aka the evergreen sapodilla).  Chicozapote latex is extracted from the trees, then boiled until sticky, and finally kneaded and shaped into rectangular bricks called marquetas.
