I'm a convert

I've been making my own vanilla extract for over a decade and used to buy my beans based on reviews at a Infamous Global seller. Was never sure what I would get. Then I found this company! The beans were beautiful! Fragrant, moist but not too moist, easy to cut open to expose the seeds and each Bean was six to seven inches long. I'm a happy extract maker! 💝💃🥳

Authentic Mastic Gum from the Greek Island of Chios

The aromatic and air dried resinous sap from the tree pistacia lentiscus is known as the first natural chewing gum in the world. The mastic tree grows solely on the southern shores of Chios. Once dried, the tears are ideal for cocktails, ice creams, and used in an array of traditional medical practices.

Our mastic is one hundred percent an all natural product from the protected designation of origin. Chios mastisha does not contain any fillers, additives or additional ingredients.

What is the flavor like

Appearance should be transparent or opaque with crystalline granules in varying teardrop shapes and sizes. The color will be off-white to yellowish. This aromatic and resinous matter comes from the sap of pistacia lentiscus var, an evergreen related to the pistachio tree. It can be used as a dinner digestive, in cakes, spirits, beverages and nutritional products.

Elegant, bold and aromatic, mastiha is used in both sweet and savory dishes. In Greece, Turkey and other parts of the Middle East, mastic has been used in cooking, baking, medicinal, and liquors. Medicinally, these tear drops of flavor have been shown to alleviate a number of issues such as digestive and oral conditions. The use of Chios mastiha is so well documented that it is recognized by the European Food Safety Authority, EFSA.

The word mastic coming from mastication meaning chewing but it can be used for more than just fresh breath. Chios mastiha can be used in food by freezing and grinding in a blender ( be sure to not blend on too high or too long as the blender will heat up the resin) or by hand with a mortar and pestle. It is commonly mixed with sugar or salt for seasoning and flavor. Most famously mastiha is used in tsoureki (Greek Easter bread), Mastic ice cream and Turkish delight candies. Egyptian cooking often uses mastic in chicken dishes paired with spices like cinnamon or cardamom. It is neither herb nor spice but a beneficial flavor resin.

The bold and aromatic character are due to the concentrated resinous nature of the product. Mastic can be described as delicately piney with notes of fennel, lemon zest, anise and even mint. The flavor is refreshing but can be easily overpowered in spice mixes. Try some today and let us know what you think. The all natural tears of Chios

Great Gum!

I've purchased mastic gum on three separate occasions from different sellers. This product is by far the best of the three.

Curiosity made me buy it

first and foremost, when I saw it on your site, I was so intrigued I had to buy it. I was not disappointed in anyway, and I do enjoy, chewing it from time to time. what you sent me seems very fresh and high-quality. It is very much like chewing pine needles which I sometimes did (when I use to smoke) to cover up the breath oder if I had no mints. I'm not sure how it is used in the culinary world but the consistancy is that of the waxed lips that use to be sold in candy stores. Definitely an interesting experience.

Nice Sized Nuggets

The mastic from Slofoodgroup is top notch. The nuggets are all bigger in size and they arrived to me in good shape. Previously bought mastic from other sellers and the tears are often small, and once the packet arrived with everything melted into a weird block. I chew the mastic, so the size of these tears is perfect. Thank you SLO!
