pre 67 (2).png

Genus: Manilkara

Family: Sapotaceae 

Specie Types

Achradelpha Mammosa, Achra Mammosa, Achras Zapota,

Achras Sapodilla, Calocarpum Mammosum, Lucuma Mammosa,

Manilkara Anchras, Manilkara Zapota, Pauteria Zapota,

Manilkara Sapodilla and Anchras Balata.


Found in the tropical forests of Mexico, Belize, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Suriname. 

Today this region, which is the heart of the Mayan world and is known as the Gran Petén, 

has the second largest land surface covered with tropical rainforests on the American continent, the Amazonia ranking first.

The sapodilla is the most abundant tree in the jungles of the Gran Petén. 

In some places it is possible to find over thirty trees in a single hectare, 

while there will be only one mahogany tree in that same area.

Sapodilla trees sometimes reach a height of over 40 meters,

with diameters of more than a meter. 

Characteristics Chicle Sap

Has the function to store and distribute with the system optimum nutrients

to the tree body.

Taking advantage of this feature all ingredients in the formulation.

Are inside the molecular structure of chicle gum base.

To make a homogeneous and efficient delivery function.


Main Ingredients:

Hydrocarbons that are  Natural Isoprenes Monomers, Cis 1,4 and Trans 1,4, 

Yellow resins,consisting primarily: Triterpenes Acetate, Lupeol acetate,

B-amyrin acetate, Spinasterol acetate, Hexane/ethyl acetate

and other natural resin types. Taraxasterol,Triterpene Alcohols, Sugars,

Tannins, Inorganic Salt, Vitamins, Proteins, 

Amino-Acids, Starches and Water.


These ingredients are special characteristic of all sapotaceae species.

This is mainly due to, special and unique molecular structure of

natural isoprenes mix with configuration Cis and Trans,

that are intertwined with luperol resin.

This is obtained polyisoprenoids of short chain and branches, 

Make great comparative difference, with other natural elastomers,

As they are, hevea rubber, balatas, jelutong, gutta, sorva

and elastomers synthetics as a SBR.
