IS EATING FRISK BAD FOR YOUR TEETH?
All FRISK products are sugar-free so they do not harm your teeth. Cavities, or dental caries, are caused by a bacteria called Streptococcus mutans. This bacteria lives in your mouth and thrives on sugar and other carbohydrates. It produces acids that dissolve in the enamel of teeth, causing cavities. The sweeteners used in the FRISK tabs are not or barely fermented into acids by this bacteria, in contrast with sugar, and thus protect your teeth from these acid “attacks”. Moreover, eating a FRISK stimulates the salivary flow in your mouth. Salivary also protects your teeth from cavities.

HOW MANY FRISKS ONE CAN EAT SAFELY DURING ONE DAY?
Sweeteners are safe when consumed in a normal way. If you consume too much sweeteners they may have, for instance, a laxative effect. To know when too much is too much, you have to know the ADI (Acceptable Daily Intake) of the ingredients. The Acceptable Daily Intake is defined as the amount of a food additive that can be ingested daily in the diet without appreciable risk on the basis of all facts known at the time. “Without appreciable risk” refers to the practical certainty that injury will not result, even after a lifetime of experience. For Aspartame the ADI is 40mg per kilo body weight per day. For Acesultame K it is 15mg per kilo mg body weight. Sorbitol has no ADI. Example for a person who weights 70kg: • 1 FRISK Tablet = 144mg contains 0.3% Aspartame (= 0.432mg) • ADI = 2800mg • This person can eat 6.481 FRISK Tablets a day to reach the maximum of the ADI
