Throughout Christmas we eat more of the bill, and, above all, typical sweets of these dates. But … do you really know how much sugar they have and how they can damage our teeth? And which one is the worst? We give you clues!
1. Candied fruit:
She is the winner by sugary win. With 81 grs. of sugar per 100 grs. of product, its high content of sugar and calories, as well as its sticky texture facilitates the adhesion to the teeth, raising the risk of caries to the stratosphere.
It is the caramel nougat in solid state mixed with almond. 51.3 g of sugar per 100 grs. of product. Its high sugar content and its hardness can cause the fracture of more than one tooth.
3. Cup chocolate:
Its sugar content is greater than that of guirlache, with 73.8 grs. of sugar per 100 grs. of product but being liquid makes it easier to remove its remains. But beware! After enjoying it, do not forget to clean and rinse after careful brushing.
49 grs. of sugar per 100 grs. of product. As in the case of candied fruit, its sticky texture sticks to the teeth, especially to the surface and it is necessary to brush well and correctly to remove debris, as well as using dental floss for interdental spaces.
5. Hard nougat:
It contains 45.1 grs. of sugar per 100 grs. of product. It is not because of the sugar but because of its hardness, that it makes the almonds so difficult to chew, that they can break a piece.
6. Soft nougat or Jijona:
With the same amount of sugar as that of Alicante (45.1 grams per 100 grams of product), it has the ability to seep through all corners of the oral cavity, so eliminating its remains can become an odyssey . Brush, paste, dental floss and mouthwash will be your best allies.
7. Mantecados and polvorones:
These authentic caloric pumps contain 25 grams. of sugar per 100 grs. of product and more than 500 calories per 100 grams. of product. We advise you care and moderation when taking them !!!
The king of the end of parties is loaded with 24 grs. of sugar per 100 grs. of product. And it is that the big problem of roscón is not in the sugar content of the bun itself, but of all the sweets that decorate it and of which we have already talked about: candied fruit, sprinkled sugar, creams, creams , truffles and chocolate, the almonds that stick in the gums and surprises if you don’t realize their presence!
But above all, these days, what you have to do, is to enjoy all that Christmas brings us and make sure you have good oral hygiene after your teeth do not take a toll!
