Chios Mastiha is a protected product cultivated for centuries only on one island in the entire world! It was the first known natural chewing gum and prevents plaque and gingivitis due to its antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also an excellent remedy for acid reflux and ulcers as it kills H. Pylori bacteria at the root of these digestive troubles. It has been found to heal and regenerate skin and is used in the culinary world as a spice because of its distinct flavor. Come to our shop and experience it for yourself!
Owners of the first ever U.S. mastihashop, sisters Artemis and Kalliopi Kohas, were born to Greek immigrant parents in Allentown, PA. Their father, Kosta, was one of the many immigrants that sought the ʽAmerican Dreamʼ and one of the few who actually achieved it. With the same entrepreneurial spirit as their father, the sisters left their previous occupations to work on the mastihashop project, which is not just a business, but a personal and deep-rooted part of their everyday life. With both parents originating from the island of Chios, Kalliopi and Artemis spent every summer of their lives on the island, surrounded by mastiha.
