If you want to make it home, you can use a blender mixing with hook (not use because the blades would break) heat gum base in a water bath, once it is liquid, put beginning at the glucose, sugar and then finally the color and flavor.

It's possible, but there are many ingredients in gum. First, you need gum base. You will also need sorbitol (the primary ingredient), flavoring (whether natural or artificial), sugar or aspartame (if sugar free), soy lechithin, and hydrogenated starch hydrolysate. With all the ingredients, it would most likely be more cost effective to buy gum when it's on sale.

I would think it would be next to impossible to make home made chewing gum. So many of the ingredients are pretty much lab made. You would need a rubber substance so the gum can be chewed without crumbling. You will also need flavorings and the exact way to cook everything. It would be easier to buy it.

Yes. You very well can. However, it is very complicated and you will need the right equipment. You can go on Youtube and type in "How to make chewing gum" to get your answer.

I beleive that you can make your own chewing gum. I would research the ingredients that you need to do so and I would also research if those ingredients are in your area or if you need to order them from some where on the internet. Once you have done this I would not think it would be hard.

I'm not sure sure if you can. I suggest going on google and searching for a recipe. I think you may need special equipment to make gum.
