A new treat may actually aid oral health.
A German firm called Organobalance GMBH will launch a new sweet that claims to fight bad bacteria. It apparently does this by containing probiotic bacteria and stopping harmful bacteria from clinging to the teeth. This new sweet allows for the harmful bacteria to be swallowed and then excreted out of the body.
These sweets use the bacteria called lactobacillus paracasei.
The probiotic bacteria get released after sucking on the sweet. They eventually bind with harmful bacteria to prevent them from sticking to the gumline and enamel.
