Sugar free gums are not all the same

Chewing sugar free gum is a great way to stimulate saliva and avoid tooth decay but be careful which one you chew.

Steer clear of the sugar free gums that are lemon, lime or fruit-flavoured.
They often contain foods acids such as Citric Acid #330.

Frequent consumption or prolonged contact of acids leads to dental erosion or acid wear.

Bottom line — check the ingredients list and if in doubt, go for the minty sugar free varieties.
