About Us | Professional Gum Manufacturers
Mastix LLC was created in 2009 by a pharmaceutical industry executive with the goal of developing niche healthcare products (supplements and pharmaceuticals) in underutilized, emerging dosage forms like tablet-ed chewing gum, chew-able tablets and lozenges. Using an in-house product development team, Mastix LLC develops custom tablet formulations that incorporate dietary supplements for companies competing in a variety of markets, including energy, immune support, weight loss and dental, just to name a few. Developing our own niche, generic pharmaceutical products is a longer term goal for us.
Mastix LLC is one of very few companies in the world that has the ability to make tableted chewing gum products. Mastix LLC uses a direct compression tableting process. Our proprietary compressed gum delivery technology is excellent for delivering supplements and active ingredients. Some of the significant advantages using a direct compression tableted chewing gum are:
- Fast absorption – many times faster than conventional dosage forms
- Convenient and discrete – no liquid required
- High bio-availability of active ingredients – avoids first pass metabolism in stomach and liver
- Fast release of supplements and actives
- Ingredients not exposed to high heat during manufacturing, which can render active ingredients inactive
- High content uniformity
Mastix LLC is the developer and manufacturer of all of its products and not a broker without a factory.
Mastix LLC makes tableted products in a variety of dosage forms for a diverse customer base, both domestic and international. Mastix LLC actually manufactures functional chewing gum products in its own 28,000 square foot 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.
We develop and manufacture products in the following categories:
- dietary supplements and nutraceuticals
- functional chewing gum
- medicated chewing gum
- functional foods
- medicated confectionery
- candy products
and, almost ingredient that can be tableted, we can make into a product.
