BM - increase in frequency in DD

DD is 10 years and used to go once per day regardless of what she ate. For past three days she has been going 3-4 times per day. No diarrhoea or anything, just looks normal. I have found out she has been eating loads of sugar free gum . She has had almost two packets in last 3 days so I was wondering if that was the cause. Saying that she has been known to eat that much and not react in this way,

I was wondering if it could be a bug without the runs

Artificial sweeteners, as afaik, a laxative, and so taken is large amounts could be the cause. No ideas how much gum would be needed tho.
