Erlanger, KY — Perfetti Van Melle U.S.A., Inc. reports that its Mentos Pure Fresh Gum has received the ADA Seal of Acceptance by the American Dental Association (ADA) following an ADA finding that the product is safe and effective to help prevent cavities when chewed for 20 minutes after eating.
The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs’ Acceptance of Mentos Pure Fresh Gum is based on its finding that the product is safe and that the physical action of chewing Mentos Pure Fresh Gum for 20 minutes after eating, stimulates saliva flow, which helps to prevent cavities by reducing acids and making teeth more resistant to decay, the company maintains.
Mentos Pure Fresh Gum is sugarfree and made with xylitol, a sugar substitute from natural sources.
“Mentos Pure Fresh Gum is all about helping consumers say ‘yes to fresh’, and the ADA Seal of Acceptance now gives them even more reason to enjoy the refreshing taste experience of Mentos gum,” says Sylvia Buxton, president & CEO of Perfetti Van Melle North America.
The company says the seal will begin to appear on the brand’s spearmint and fresh mint flavors’ 50-piece curvy bottles beginning in April 2021.
