I have heard for a while that aspartame is bad but my son really needs gum and I had found no alternatives in our local stores. It was one of the first questions I asked vendors at the Autism Conference, ”where do I find safe gum?” At the time I was less concerned with the Aspartame and more concerned that most commercial gums were made with Red 40 and our newly found Blue dyes.
We have just found Spry gum. I have not tried it yet but it was recommended at the convention and by our neighbor that conveniently sells natural health products that I ran into at the mail box a couple of weeks ago. It has been amazing to talk to her; she does not deal with autism but has gone all natural because of other health issues. It has changed her live so much that it is now her career.
I can’t wait to get my new order of gum so he can safely chew without causing more problems because of the chemicals that are in the gum!
