Olgani believes that efforts to discourage sugar over-consumption should begin in childhood. Stimulation of the tastes, other than the taste for sugar, should begin in the early years, particularly because children have taste buds in more areas in the mouth than adults.
A child?s sense of taste is more sensitive and therefore continuous exposure to sweetness may lead to avoidance of other tastes and have bad consequences for overall health. Simple sugars, due to their powerful effect on the reward centres of the brain, function similarly to drugs of abuse like cocaine and nicotine and result in cravings and addiction.
With this in mind Olgani has developed new toothpaste for children age 2 and up.
Olgani Fruity Orange Toothpaste contains Xylitol and Liquorice extract but only for it beneficial in oral care properties and not to enhance the taste of the product. Olgani natural and nourishing Fruity Orange Toothpaste is somewhat fruity, salty and herbal tasting, and is only sweet looking.
