Chewing gum base is a compound of elastomers, resin and food-grade wax to which other materials are added to produce chewing gum. Hard, high melt-point waxes are used in this application, including microcrystalline and candelilla waxes. It is also used on citrus and other fruit to improve moisture retention, extending its life and freshness and providing shine.
