The use of mastic was widespread even in ancient times. Mastic was used as a natural medicine for stomach aches 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 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 for its use as a medicine is also widely used to improve taste in cooking and bakery.
The natural gum mastic in powder 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 this listing of mastic.
Warning: Mastic powder should be kept in a cool place, below 17C / 63F, or preferably 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 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 high temperatures for a 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.
When 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).
*ATTENTION. If you are not willing to take the risk to get the powder stuck especially during the hot months, please consider the alternative to buy mastic in Small Tears and either use it as it is -for pharmaceutical use- or you could ground it into powder yourself.
Natural mastic is used as natural medicine.
