Xylitol studies.

 

"Sugar alcohols, caries incidence and remineralisation of caries lesions: A literature review:"

In a 2010 article in the International Journal of Dentistry, several studies on the effects of xylitol on dental health are clearly presented. Regular consumption of xylitol is significantly associated with tooth remineralisation and the reduction of caries.

"Effect of xylitol pastilles on dental plaque and Streptococcus mutans".

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of xylitol pastilles on dental plaque formation. 59 young, randomly selected adults were divided into test and control groups for the study. The participants in the test group consumed 8 xylitol pastilles daily after meals for 4 weeks. The intake of xylitol was 5 g per day. The control group did not consume any pastilles. The four-week intake of pastilles containing xylitol clearly reduced the amount of dental plaque and induced a reduction in caries bacteria.

"Scientific Opinion on the substantiation of health claims related to the sugar substitutes xylitol [...]"
European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), Parma, Italy"

The European Food Safety Authority already dealt with a scientific opinion on sugar substitutes in 2011. It is confirmed that the consumption of xylitol creates an alkaline environment in the mouth, which means that hardly any caries-causing acid can be produced. Caries bacteria cannot settle on the teeth and multiply. When consuming foods and beverages sweetened with xylitol, a high PH level is maintained even half an hour after consumption and does not lead to dental erosion as it does with sugar. Remineralisation is also confirmed. In addition, it is also stated here that the consumption of xylitol hardly influences the blood sugar level compared to sugary foods or beverages.

"The Mother and Child Study"

In this series of studies, mothers of newborns were given xylitol chewing gum from 4 to 24 months after delivery (the period in which they received xylitol lasted about 21 months in total). [...] The results prove that the xylitol gum given to the mothers had significantly slowed the development of caries in their children. Xylitol had apparently prevented or halted the intrafamilial transmission of Streptococcus mutans from mother to child. This observation supports the concept of dental caries as a contagious, transmissible disease. Microbiological analyses made at the same time showed that the number of Streptococcus mutans in the samples from the mouths of the children at the age of two was also reduced. (Mäkinen 2003:47)

"Osteoporosis"

 

Xylitol has been found to form complexes with calcium in the intestine, facilitating the absorption of calcium into the body, which could indicate that the sweet substance may also be helpful in preventing bone fragility (osteoporosis). Experiments have shown an increase in bone density after xylitol administration.
