NutriCology Mastic gum (also known as mastiha) is resinous extract from the Pistacia
var. chia tree, indigenous to the Mediterranean islands. The mastic
tree thrives especially well in the southern part of the island of Chios, due to the

mild climate and characteristics of the soil.
Recently, the traditional knowledge
of Chios mastiha production was recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage

The plant has a unique lemony balsam-like smell,
which can permeate the air of the ‘Mastichochoria’, the villages on Chios that

produce mastic gum. Mastiha is used as a flavoring for many products in Greece

restaurant and corner store. The use of Chios mastiha as a digestive dates back

to Hippocrates in the 5th century BCE, and has carried through the ages
