How is the Chios mastic presented on Vitafood?

In the eastern Aegean, somewhere at the crossroads between East and West, on the island of Chios, mastic has been cultivated since ancient times, a product - a legend, linked to traditions, historical events and cultural contacts, coming untouched until today, carved by the culture of the Eastern Mediterranean, stronger than ever thanks to its scientifically proven beneficial properties.

What is Chios mastic?

Chios Mastic is the name of the resinous sap that is extracted from the Pistacia Lentiscus var. Chia tree. It is a natural, aromatic, tear-shaped resin that falls to the ground in droplets from surface grooves made by growers on the trunk and main branches of the tree with sharp tools.
