What We Do | Tablet & Gum Manufacturer
Leading the Way in Unique Tableted Products
Mastix Medica a gum manufacturer in Maryland specializes in developing and manufacturing tableted products that provide faster absorption of active ingredients – chewing gum, lozenges and chew-able tablets (We are the number 1 gum manufacturer in the US). Tableted chewing gum is a delivery system where most of the active ingredients are absorbed through the buccal mucosa, under the tongue, (the rest is swallowed like an ingested product), which is faster (and more bio-available) than products that use conventional oral absorption in tablet, capsule or liquid dosage forms through the gastrointestinal tract.
As a gum manufacturer we are one of very few gum manufacturing companies in the world that has the ability to make functional chewing gum products – and the only functional gum manufacturer in the United States. Our functional chewing gum is made using a patent-pending process of adding active ingredients to a powdered gum base and then tableting a chewing gum using direct compression, thus making a product that has content uniformity from piece to piece. Unlike other companies that make chewing gum products, we are the only gum manufacturing company that manufactures its own powdered gum base using our proprietary, patent-pending process. This process allows us the flexibility to create custom chewing gum formulations. Conventional chewing gum manufacturers use a high temperature extruded process that can destroy the active ingredients, which may result in a sub-potent final product. As a gum manufacturer our chewing gum is manufactured under FDA-regulated GMP conditions at room temperature so the actives are fully available in the final product.
We make tableted products in a variety of dosage forms for a diverse customer base, and for domestic and international markets. Mastix Medica actually manufactures functional chewing gum products in its own 28,000 sq ft facility and is not a broker without its own factory. We contract manufacture or private label tableted chewing gum, chew-able tablets, lozenges, mints and candy for a wide variety of customers including national brand leaders, small niche marketers, the U.S. Military, export customers and many more. Our product capabilities include dietary supplements, functional chewing gum, medicated chewing gum, functional foods and confectionery, medicated confectionery and compressed dextrose or sugar-free candy – almost anything that can be tableted we can make. We are a socially and ethically responsible company that operates a quality-driven, GMP compliant production environment. Our products are Kosher (Star-K) and Halal certified.
