Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor?

Students determine the amount of sugar in various types of gum. They chew a piece of gum until it loses its flavor and leave it to dry in order to weigh it and determine the amount of mass lost, and describe an experiment to determine whether sugarless gum loses as much mass after chewing as regular gum does.
