Title
(EN) Liquid oral compositions comprising a calcium compound and an acidulant
Abstract
(EN)

Acidic oral compositions having reduced tooth erosion characteristics, especially acid beverages such as fruit juice drink concentrates, or oral healthcare products such as mouthwashes, are prepared by adding a calcium compound to the acid composition so that the mol ratio of calcium to acid ranges from 0.3 to 0.8, and the pH of the composition, if necessary after adjustment with an alkali, is from 3.5 to 4.5.
