In a perfect world we’d all be able to eat whatever we wanted without there being any type of health consequences. Of course, this isn’t the reality we live in as there are many issues to consider (ex: dietary conditions, allergies, etc.). However, what if there was a line of candies that not only wasn’t harmful to your dental health, but actually was able to help improve it?
Zollipops anyone? “Zollipops” is a candy company that provides sweets that are actually good for kids’ teeth instead of causing decay and cavities. But that’s not actually the most interesting thing about the business. No, the most interesting thing is that the company’s founder, Alina Morse, is just 10 years old. The idea for the company came to Morse when she was worried about the effects that a regular old sucker could have on her teeth. Zollipops look just like regular old suckers. They come in packs with several different flavors, including strawberry, grape, orange, pineapple, raspberry and cherry. But what makes them different is the ingredients. Zollipops include Xylitol, Erythritol, Stevia and other natural ingredients that are better for teeth than all the sugars and syrups in other suckers and candies.”
Creating foods that are able to be enjoyable and also improve your health is very forward thinking and should be the future of the food industry. However, no matter what you eat make sure to thoroughly maintain your oral health by brushing, flossing, rinsing and visiting your Ottawa dentist for checkups and cleanings.
