There’s been some debate on whether or not Orbit Gum is actually vegan, as there’s just been a lot of misinformation and fear-mongering spread on forums about Orbit Gum.
The truth is Orbit Gum is in fact Vegan; all of their flavors should be vegan as they’ve stated so multiple times, and all of their parent companies other gum-products are vegan as well.
All Vegan Orbit Flavors as of Early-2022:
The above are the classic Orbit flavors that are vegan, the below are the two Orbit White Flavors that currently are on the market and are Vegan:
- Peppermint White
- Spearmint White
So Why Did People Think Orbit Gum Wasn't Vegan?
In the past, many many many years ago, Orbit put a small gelatin coating around some of the flavor-beads in their gums, and I believe it wasn’t even listed on the ingredients when it happened. It was something along those lines, but since then Orbit has stated multiple times that they don’t do that any longer and fixed that with their manufacturers.
They’ve specifically said that there are no animal ingredients in their products, meaning both the Glycerol and the artificial colors in some of their gums are in fact vegan, contrary to what some people fear-monger online.
