Gums and Candies are good for your teeth.
This is definitely sweet tooth can smile about. According to research, sugar alcohol sweetener present in most gums and candies called Xylitol are beneficial to our dental health.The World Health Organization has reted Xylitol as a safe food additive. Xylitol, a natural sugar found in the fiber of most fruits and vegetables, helps avert the development of tooth decay causing bacteria.Saliva is made more alkaline by Xylitol therby preventing bad bacteria from sticking to tooth surface. The bad bacteria is unable to digest xylitol thus preventing plaque and tartar build up.Studies show that 4 to 12 grams of Xylitol per day is effective. This is administered using chewing gum, candy or pastilles after eating and after clearing the mouth by gargling water. source: discover magazine
