There are a lot of different chewing gum brands out there. But those looking for aspartame free gum are often left unsatisfied. It can be a hassle trying to find gum without aspartame, but not impossible. Let’s check out some choices.
Do the most popular gum brands contain aspartame?
Yes, the vast majority of popular gum brands are all owned by the parent company Wrigley’s and as a rule their sugar-free gums (and even some that use sugar) all use a mixture of different artificial sweeteners which include aspartame. Some examples include the Orbit product line as well as other well known brands like Spearmint and Hubba Bubba.
As a whole, Wrigley’s oversees dozens of different brands of gum so it will be easier to memorize brands that don’t use aspartame, rather than try to remember all that do.
So it’s pretty clear that aspartame free gum is fairly uncommon as a rule, though a fair selection of options do exist. So let’s take a look.
