Our Story



Sam Singer founded Train Gum in 2012. The idea began while he was chewing gum in his dorm room. He realized there was a problem with the gum he was chewing: he couldn't pronounce half the ingredients! Taking matters into his own hands, he decided to begin making his own gum. After much research and experimentation, Train Gum left the station. Using only 4 ingredients: chicle, simple syrup, natural oils, and rice flour (all easily pronounceable!), Train offers health conscious and savvy customers an alternative to artifical chewing gums.

Train uses just

FOUR

natural ingredients

IN OUR SMALL BATCH GUM-MAKING

1. CHICLE

Chicle is the sticky sap of the sapodilla tree, and had has been the source of chew for the Mayan people for thousands of years.

3. NATURAL OILS

At Train we use only natural oils for our flavoring, all completely plant derived. In addition to artificial gum bases, sweeteners, and colors, most gum is artificial flavoring as well.

2. SIMPLE SYRUP

Train uses simple syrup (sugar and water) to both sweeten and provide consistency to our chewing gum. As most health conscious consumers realize today, there are many forms of artificial sweeteners available and almost all have nasty health side effects.

4. RICE FLOUR

Rice flour plays an important part in the coating process for Train gum. After gum is made and then cut, each piece is coated with rice flour so that is does not stick to the paper of the hand wrapped pieces.
