Imagine chewing delicious gum that literally wipes plaque-causing germs away from your teeth. Spry fights cavities and plaque by creating an unwelcome environment for bacteria; they simply cannot stick to teeth in a xylitol-rich environment.
Xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables and produced in small amounts by the human body. For commercial use, it is manufactured from xylan hemicellulose sources such as birch trees, cane bagasse and corn cobs/stalks. It is the sweetest of the polyols with the same sweetness as sugar (sucrose) but with 40% fewer calories and none of the negative tooth decay or insulin release effects of sugar. Classified on labels as a carbohydrate, xylitol has been used in foods since the 1960’s and is approved in the U.S. as a food additive in unlimited quantity for foods with special dietary purposes and is safe for use by those with diabetes or hypoglycemia. Over 25 years of testing clinical testing confirms that xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth. Its use has been shown to reduce instances of tooth decay up to 80%. Sugar free chewing gums and candies made with this sweetener have already received official endorsements from six national dental associations.
