Imagine a candy that, instead of doing damage to your teeth, actually improved your oral health.
Well, that’s exactly what a Berlin based firm has created.
Organobalance GmbH, the firm responsible for creating the “miracle” candy, claims that it actually reduces bad bacteria in the mouth.
We’re all familiar with the dangers of traditional, sugary candy. Sugary residue left on the surface of the tooth releases acid, which dissolves enamel and leads to cavities. However, this new candy has a dead bacterium that binds with the bad bacteria. This prevents the bad bacteria from attaching to the tooth and instead it is washed away by saliva.
Results from an initial study showed that children who ate the candy had significantly lower bad bacteria levels than children who ate traditional candy.
