Formulation, optimization and texture characterization of environment friendly gum

Chewing gum cause waste management problems around the world.Many consumers of chewing gum do not dispose product properly and gum is littered in public places.The syenthetic polymer based chewing gum have adhesive texture which help it to stick to various places and make it difficult to clean of surfaces .Their is constant need to modify chewing gum base in such a manner that they are chemically degradable. In current study corn zein,which is a major corn endosperm protein is used to make chewing gum.Various plastisizer are used for formulation of corn zein gum.Corn zein shows sufficient biodegradation property.In current study charectarization of chewing gum is performed using texture analyser and results are reported
