PH Values Of Food And Food Stuff
We have provided the approximate value of PH of apples, the values are approximate and may differ slightly due to soil conditions ripeness ect.
The PH scale Starts from 1 to 14, with a PH of 1 being the most acidic, and 14 being the most alkaline.
A PH of 7 is neutral – The PH of pure water is very close to 7.0 At a PH of 5.5 the teeth begin to demineralise, putting them at risk for cavities.
A healthy mouth is in a neutral pH range.
Apple, baked with sugar 3.20 - 3.55 PH
Apple, eating 3.30 - 4.00 PH
Golden Delicious 3.90 PH
Jonathan 3.33 PH
McIntosh 3.34 PH
Juice 3.35 - 4.00 PH
Juice 3.35 - 4.00 PH
Ph does have an effect on tooth enamel as acid based foods and beverages including fruits can cause damage to teeth causing tooth erosion.
Dental erosion is the irreversible loss of tooth structure due to chemical dissolution by acids without the involvement of microorganisms.
To help mitigate some of the effects of acid based foods and beverages.
Drink water after your consume them or rinse and spit out water.
Chew gum that contains xylitol this natural based sweetener made from birch tree extract helps kill some of the bad bacteria that produce acid conditions that attack your teeth.
The action of chewing gum also creates additional saliva which helps the mouth to get back to an optimal state.
Don’t brush your teeth for at least 20 min after food.
This may seem illogical,
“surely we would want to scrub always the sugar and acid as soon as possible”.
However conventional wisdom does not apply in this instance.
Your teeth have just undergone an acid attack and require somewhere between 20 -60 for remineralisation to occur.
The process of remineralisation helps the teeth to become stronger and what give the enamel its strength, brushing too soon after food or beverage can do more harm than good.
