A comparison of crude and refined sugar and cereals in their ability to produce in vitro decalcification of teeth

The suggestion that there is a "protective agent" in crude sugar-cane juice, which is removed in the course of refining, is advanced with the added assurance. This agent does not depend on an ability to prevent or reduce acid fermentation

Cycloisomaltooligosaccharides contained in the kokuto produced in Okinawa Prefecture

Kokuto samples that have been traditionally produced in Okinawa Prefecture were dissolved in water and insoluble contaminants were removed by centrifugation. Water-soluble oligosaccharides contained in the supernatant fraction were subjected to charcoal and HP-20 columns to analyze the contained oligosaccharides ...

Enamel protective factors in foods

Stralfors also showed that several constituents of cocoa (0.2% theobromine, 0.2% xanthine, 0.05% vanillin, and 0.01 to 0.05 tannic acid) all reduced caries at the indicated concentrations, The existence of factors that reduce solubility rate ...

Finding of cyclodextrans and attempts of their industrialization for cariostatic oligosaccharides

Cyclic isomaltooligosaccharides or cyclodextrans (CIs) are cyclic oligosaccharides of α-1,6 linked glucose residues. CIs are highly water-soluble and were found to strongly inhibit glucansucrose activity of mutant streptococci, so CIs are expected to be utilized as cariostatic compounds. They ...

Influência de diversos açúcares na incidência de cárie de molares de ratos (Rattus nvergicus, var. albinus)

Influence of several sugars in the dental caries incidence of molars of rats (Rattus novergicus, var. albinus). The effect of muscovado sugar and the one of refined sugar was less than the control group but this was not statistically significant

Inhibition in vitro of decalcification in teeth

By incubation in media containing refined sugar or cereals mixed with saliva decalcification was produced in healthy teeth. Calcium acid phosphate added to the incubating mixtures gave very little if any protection. 2. A mixture of calcium lactate and sodium ...

Inhibition of hamster caries by substances in brown sugar

Experiments with hamsters showed that there are caries-inhibitory substances in brown sugar, in the solid crystallized form as well as in treacle. The cariostatic effect was also apparent when the brown sugar was baked into bread. A synergistic effect was ...

Polyphenols, oral health and disease - A review

Objective: Polyphenols (PPs) are reactive metabolites abundant in plant-derived foods, particularly fruits, seeds and leaves. In the tissues of the digestive tract, particularly the oral mucosa, active PPs reach the highest concentration. Although excessively high and monotonic intake may be ...

Prevention of dental caries with natural unrefined food

It has been demonstrated that brown sugar contains chemical substances with a specific cariostatic capacity. Since 1953 children in Chaux-de-Fonds are advised to use natural, unrefined foods to prevent dental decay. Three kinds of sugar exist: white sugar, pure crystal ...

The effect of sugar cane chewing on the development of dental caries

In Tanzania, the effect of sugar cane chewing on the development of caries was investigated. Two groups were selected; those who had easy access to sugar cane (sugar cane cutters) and those who did not (sisal plant workers). These groups ...

The study of cariogenicity of raw sugarcane in 12-year-old children in Punjab, India

There is laboratory evidence that refined carbohydrates are more cariogenic compared with unrefined carbohydrates. It was reported that sugarcane workers in South Africa, who consumed large quantities of raw sugarcane daily, had a low caries experience. However, other epidemiologic studies ...
