By Xylichew Gum7 Reviews
Expiration Date: Sep 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This brand of Xylitol gum is one of the only two gums I've seen online that are sourced from 100% American Birchwood (the other being B-Fresh gum, also a great brand, but includes calcium as an ingredient). Since Xylitol is a natural laxative, chewing Xylitol gum may sometimes cause indigestion and bloating in the stomach. This brand has none of those problems. Cheaper brands, like Spry and Xyloburst, harvest their Xylitol from GMO-sourced corn based in China, and are therefore much more likely to cause stomach upset. The taste lasts a good 5-10 minutes, for each piece of gum. The mint flavor lasts longer than the sweetness, since the Xylitol dissolves quickly in your mouth. This is a good thing, as you can feel it actively cleaning your teeth. It is a little pricey, but I don't buy this gum for enjoyment. I consider it more like a dental investment, except instead of using mouthwash, I'm just chewing a tasty piece of gum. iHerb is the only place where you can find XyliChew, btw. It is one of the sole reasons why I am a customer here :)
Love chewing this gum to rebalance the pH of my mouth throughout the day. It's important for everyone to do this because the bacteria in the mouth are acid forming and thus very bad for teeth enamel and gums. This gum also freshens the breath. Each gum stays flavorful for about 10 minutes of chewing, which is nice.
