How do drinks & exercise affect chewing gum?

Part of the show Does a Frozen Body Shatter?

Question

Dr. Thomas Kammertöns asked:

Dear Chris Smith,

 

Here is my question to the naked scientists:

 

I wonder why it is that even if you have a fresh chewing gum and you do

heavy physical exercise or drink coffee that the texture of the material

changes. Are there enzymes digesting the material or is the pH changing

the material?

 

Best regards
