Sugar Alcohols


Unlike many sources of caffeine that are high in sugar, Run Gum® uses a combination of artificial sweeteners to provide a great tasting caffeine delivery method without unwanted sugars.

Caffeine, B-Vitamins and Taurine are naturally very bitter. Without a sweetener, they are almost unpalatable. We use a combination of sugar alcohols and sucralose to mask the bitterness. 

Sugar Alcohols are used as a sweetener instead of real sugar to make Run Gum® taste great without the normal sugar crash or noticeable calories. Sugar alcohols also help with tooth decay by inhibiting oral bacteria.

Sugar alcohols are commonly found in gum and mints. Run Gum uses maltitol, sorbital and xylitol.

Sucralose is also a sugar substitute adds sweetness to foods and beverages without adding calories or carbohydrates and is 600 times sweeter than sugar.
