Port St. Lucie, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2014 -- Nutritional Outlook Magazine, published by UBM Canon, is a leading resource for manufacturers and marketers of dietary supplements and healthy alternatives. It is a trade magazine aimed at nutraceutical professionals, enriching their knowledge of the field and pointing out opportunities for growth and development within the industry. Their latest article is a feature on compressed chewing gum manufacturer ZOFT Gum, who explains how their compression method offers a superior means of producing high quality health gum.
In the article, ZOFT explains that extrusion is the most common way of producing gum products, but this high temperature method could potentially destroy any added-value product or active ingredient present in the mix.
ZOFT specializes in using chewing gum and other confectionery products as an optimal system for delivering health related ingredients including vitamins, minerals, herbals, botanicals, amino acids, antioxidants and more. Direct Compression Gum utilizes a more expensive means of production, but protects the active ingredients so that the delivery mechanism functions as it should.
The company is one of the only gum and confectionery companies capable of creating functional products in this way, owing to their unique and proprietary methodologies. ZOFT is one of very few companies in the world that has the ability to make functional chewing gum products.
ZOFT is the only company that manufactures its own powdered gum base using a proprietary process, which allows them the freedom to create custom formulations by adjusting the mix to accept and host further active ingredients.
Heather Collins, ZOFT Media Representative, had this to say, “We elaborated upon this process with Nutritional Outlook Magazine because we feel it is important for product marketers to know the difference in quality between the two processes. The high temperature extrusion used in conventional gum could destroy these active ingredients, while the active ingredients are fully available in our final product thanks to our unique manufacturing process. All tablets have equal, predictable and reliable supplementary content. We based this technique on the way in which pharmaceutical tablets are created, so clients can rest assured the finished product is of the finest quality.”
