SparX candies are just what mums and all health conscious people have been craving - sweetened with 100% xylitol, they're tasty treats that don't promote tooth decay.
What is Xylitol
Xylitol is found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables. Clinical studies conducted in populations with both high and low cavity incidence show that supplementing a normal diet with regular consumption of Xylitol (e.g. Xylitol sweetened candy > 2 times/day) is of clear benefit to the teeth.
When carbohydrate or sugars are consumed acid is produced in the mouth and the pH drops rapidly below pH 5.7, causing demineralization of tooth enamel and potential cavities. Since Xylitol is a five-carbon polyol, oral bacteria do not metabolize it and therefore no acid is produced. When Xylitol products are used the pH balance in the oral cavity is quickly returned to a safe level above pH 5.7, minimizing the erosion of enamel and enhancing the remineralization process. The pleasant sweetness also stimulates saliva flow, which helps to rinse away excess sugar residues and neutralize any acids that have been formed.
Xylitol is roughly as sweet as sucrose with only two-thirds the food energy.
Products sweetened with xylitol create an unwelcome environment for bacteria; they simply cannot stick to teeth in a Xylitol-rich environment.
