100% pure natural gum mastic / mastiha ground in powder, without additives, without chemicals. ANEMOS, Chios
The use of mastic was widespread even in ancient times. Mastic was used as natural medicine for stomach ache and for controlling cholesterol levels and diabetes. Nowadays, its use is becoming again very popular. Mastic is a harmless natural product and has no side effects. Recently, it was scientifically proven that it cures the stomach ulcer and H pylori.
The natural gum mastic of Chios is recognized as a natural medicine (HPMC) also by the European Medicines Agency (ΕΜΑ).
Mastic except its use as a medicine is also widely used to improve taste in cooking and bakery.
The natural gum mastic is ground by us, using only top quality natural mastic without any addition of other substances.
Our top quality ground mastic can be used as a natural medicine and for other uses.
We supply a dosage spoon with every purchase of mastic powder.
Attention: Mastic powder should be kept in a cool place, below 18 C (64 F) or, in the refrigerator. During summer time the heat in Greece (and possibly in your country) may reach high temperatures. As a result, if the mastic powder is exposed to high heat for some time it might stick together and become lumpy. If this happens, please put the mastic with the jar for a few hours in the deep freezer and then tap it on a hard surface, so it will become powder again.
If the mastic powder during transport is exposed to very high heat for prolonged time, it might stick together and could possibly become a yellow lump. In this case, put the jar for a few hours in the deep freezer and then while still frozen put smaller pieces of the mastic lump in a blender and make it powder again.
If you make it powder again it will be perfectly all right and absolutely safe to use, since mastic starts losing some of its properties only if it is heated above 80 degrees Celsius (176 Fahrenheit).
If you are not willing to take the risk to get the powder stuck please consider the alternative to buy mastic in small tears and make it powder yourself.
For ease of use and safety we put the ground Chios gum mastic in plastic jars of: 30g=1.01oz, 60g= 2.03oz, 120g= 4.06oz, 250g= 8.82oz, 500g=1.1lb, 1000*gr/1kg = 2.2lb
