Ideal cariostatic properties

galenIQ™ cannot be used as substrate by most of the bacteria occuring in the oral cavity. Therefore, it helps to reduce the formation of dental plaque. Numerous human in vivo trials demonstrate that the pH value in the plaque remains above the critical level of 5.7 when galenIQ™ containing products are consumed instead of products made of sugar or glucose.
Combined with the good organoleptical properties, the non-cariogenicity makes galenIQ™ an attractive choice for many buccal applications, such as sucking tablets, chewables or lozenges.
