Minerals in Chewing gum
Just like vitamins, minerals help your body grow and stay healthy. The body uses minerals to perform many different functions, for example for building strong bones, or transmitting nerve impulses. Some minerals are even used to make hormones or maintain a normal heartbeat.
Fluandide (5 µg), Potassium (2 mg) and Sodium (1 mg) are some of the minerals present in Chewing gum.

Vegetables, especially green leafy varieties, are generally our richest sources of potassium. But this mineral can also be found in varying amounts in almost all foods. 2 milligrams of potassium can be found on every 100 grams of Chewing gum, the 0% of the total daily recommended potassium intake.
Sodium is needed for muscle contractions, nerve transmissions, maintaining pH balance and hydration. Sodium also regulates the fluid outside of the cells and is needed to pump fluid into the cells as potassium carries by-products out. 100 grams of Chewing gum contains 1 milligrams of sodium, that’s the 0% of the daily recommended value for an adult.
Fluorine deficiency is a disorder which may cause increased dental caries and possibly osteoporosis due to a lack of fluorine in the diet. 5 micrograms of fluorine can be found on every 100 grams of Chewing gum, the 0.14% of the total daily recommended fluorine intake.
Selenium is one of many important dietary minerals, and we require a small amount of selenium in our daily diet. Selenium is incorporated in a small cluster of important proteins (called “selenoproteins”), each of which plays a critical role in our health. In 100 grams of Chewing gum, you can find 0.6 micrograms of selenium. It provides the 1% of the daily recommended value for the average adult.
