    Raisins Promote Healthy Gums and Teeth

    Raisins, despite being sweet and sticky, not only do not cause cavities and gum disease, but actually promote oral health. The phytonutrientss in raisins, specifically one called oleanolic acid, are highly effective in killing the bacteria that cause cavities (Streptococcus mutans) and periodontal dental disease (Porphyromonas gingivalis).

    Plus, the sugars raisins contain-mainly fructose and glucose-are not as likely to contribute to cavities as sucrose, the main culprit in oral disease. So, add raisins to your morning cereal, lunch time fruit salad, or tossed green salad with dinner. You can satisfy your sweet tooth without sacrificing healthy teeth and gums.

    I like raisins. The regular kind. The raisins from the green grapes don't really do it for me though.
