If you are worried that your daily cheese intake might be affecting your health? If so, then there is a good news for your teeth and dental health care. You will be surprised to know that actually cheese protects your teeth from acid erosion, caused by coffee, tea, wine, soda, etc.
One of the greatest finds in dairy products in cheese is their calcium content. A one ounce serving of Swiss, cheddar, or mozzarella cheese, will provide you with around 200 milligrams of calcium. It also contains vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin K2, phosphorous, sodium, and riboflavin.
A new study from the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) has found that cheese protects your teeth from acid erosion-breakdown of enamel, caused by coffee, tea, wine, soda, etc. Cheese increases the pH level of the teeth making it less acidic environment thus protects from teeth decay. Cheese also increases saliva, which neutralises acid in the mouth.
So, finish a meal with cheese,with high pH (meaning low acid content) cheese being the best. Hard cheese is particularly useful because it would stick to your teeth better.
