BEEMANS WAS INVENTED IN THE LATE 1800S BY DR. EDWARD E. BEEMAN WHO DISCOVERED THAT PEPSIN, DERIVED FROM THE STOMACH OF HOGS, COULD AID DIGESTION.
In 1879, Dr. Edward E. Beeman, an Ohio physician, turned gum – which had been simply a fun thing – into a product with valuable features. Setting aside his practice of medicine, Beeman used his medicinal skills to manufacture a pepsin powder to be used as a digestive aid.
