Roquette conducted scientific studies which showed the benefits of SweetPearl® maltitol. There is not one polyol which can be considered as better than the other; each of them has their own benefit in oral health.
Yes, all crystalline polyols are good for teeth and proven by pH telemetry test. Some liquid polyols you can find on the market might not be toothfriendly.
However, the LYCASIN® range of liquid maltitol from Roquette is guaranteed non-cariogenic.
Yes. Even polyols that can be found in nature are additives and have an E-number. Natural ingredients like natural colors also have an E-number because they are additives.
There is a pH telemetry test where people are exposed to sucrose and then polyol.
It proves that with the consumption of crystalline polyol, the pH in the mouth does not go below 5.7 which is the lowest limit where the enamel is attacked.
The non-cariogenicity of a final product has to be considered in its globality.
Besides polyols, other ingredients might lead to cariogenicity.
Thus, we recommend to have your product tested by approved official labs.
