78% of gum is a rubber base. the rest is artifical flaovring. The rubber does not degrade unless its exposed to water for 5 years.

An ingredient in gum called "gum base" is strong enough to resist the acidic affects of saliva. Once it is swallowed, the stomachs gastrointestinal juices are strong enough to break down the gum base.
