Hidden Sugar is not Sweet to Teeth

                                      
When it comes to sugar, avoiding it may seem pretty easy when you first start. Eliminate the sweets, chocolate, cake and biscuits and you’re done, right?

Wrong!

Unfortunately, manufacturers across the globe are adding sugar to their foods – even foods we consider to be healthy are seemingly packed with sugar.

And how do they do it?

They use different names for sugar!

Here are some other names for sugar you might not have come across before:

  • sucrose
  • corn syrup
  • treacle
  • maltose
  • caramel
  • rice syrup
  • agave
  • malt syrup
  • fructose
  • honey
  • invert sugar
  • maple syrup
  • cane crystals
  • hydrolysed starch
  • dextrose
  • molasses
  • fruit juice concentrate

That’s not a small list, is it?! And each of those will cause damage to your teeth and your health.

HAVE A LOOK AT THIS!

ONES TO WATCH

Some foods do a much better job of fooling us into thinking what we’re eating is healthy – when actually, they’re really not. Some of the worst offenders in this category include salad dressing, breakfast bars, smoothies (yes, really!) and yoghurt.

Bread, soups and sauces and alcohol are all foods you should double-check too.

HOW MUCH SUGAR CAN WE EAT?

Who?
Recommended Daily Amount
which is equivalent to approx..
Adults
30g
7 sugar cubes
Children; 7-10 years
24g
6 sugar cubes
Children; 4-6
19g
5 sugar cubes

great reading your post. I've grown tired of using the stock Android video player and have been looking for a better option for a while. Maybe this app will do it for me.

Eat with moderation. Sugar content in every food can't be avoided. Just avoid eating or drinking too much. Unfortunately, children are not that easy to moderate that's why frequent check up is highly important. Visiting alexandria va dentist became a habit for our family. I was happy and contented how they managed to let my kids free from fear of injection. They really had the best dental service for me. It's good also to have proper oral hygiene to stay away from tooth decay.

Hi Claire, your post really gives us new perspective. It helps us to rethink what we were doing in the past. Its sure that what we think good is not actually that good because of some misguided label. We should learn more and cautious and make more conscious decision. Thanks.

Tooth discoloration can be a very difficult condition to treat, so finding the best teeth whitening kit is really important for image conscious individuals. Keeping your teeth really clean and healthy is one thing, but keeping them at the best shade of white is not possible with standard items such as a tooth brush and toothpaste. Check out the teeth whitening stuffs i found online.

For me, I would suggest cleaning your mouth for at least 3 times a day, then use some oil pulling products to make it more effective.
