Tooth Friendly

Footy's is based on a sweetener, namely Erythritol and the positive effect this has on oral hygiene. So how can your oral hygiene improve by simply drinking a powder cool drink?

Dental cavities (caries) develop when bacteria adhere to the surface of your teeth in the form of plaque. These bacteria then convert the fermentable carbohydrates that have become available into acids which then attack the tooth enamel. Footy’s does not cause the release of significant amounts of acid and the pH in your mouth remains above the critical pH level of 5.7.

If you eat for instance regular sugar the pH of your mouth drops for 15 minutes below critical pH which then causes an acidic environment and the risk of developing caries (cavities) increases over time.

Natural Ingredients

Our Footy’s range of powder cooldrinks are made with natural ingredients.

Erythritol, (pronounced “eryth·ri·tol”) is a natural component of fruits, vegetables and grains. Erythritol is classified as a sugar alcohol, even though it is neither sugar nor alcohol. It is derived from fruits and vegetables through a natural fermentation process, much like that of yogurt.

It has no calories and no effect on blood glucose levels. It is natural and doesn’t cause side effects either. Basically, all the good stuff in regular sugar, with none of the negatives and it is tooth friendly too.

Erythritol has less of a laxative effect when compared to other sugar alcohols, because 90 percent of it is absorbed in the small intestine and eliminated through the urine. Along with this, the natural flora in the colon does not use erythritol as a food source which lowers the chances of bloating and gas.

Stevia is a little green plant from the sunflower family.

The stevia leaf is up to 200 times sweeter than sugar, it does not have any caloric value or effect on blood sugar levels.

Add Footy's to your favourite plain yoghurt for a delicious dessert or breakfast.

Frequently Asked Questions

Footy’s is safe for your child at any age as it contains no sugar or artificial ingredients and is high in Vitamin C.
The Erythritol used in our Footy’s Powder is NON-GMO, it also has less of a laxative effect when compared to other sugar alcohols. More than 80 grams of Erythritol needs to be consumed per day to actually cause bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea and digestive upset. One standard serving [350-450ml] of Footy’s cool drink contains approximately 12 grams of Erythritol, which means that you can enjoy 5-6 servings per day to reach the threshold of 80 grams of Erythritol intake per day.
Oral health means more than just an attractive smile. Poor oral health and untreated oral diseases and conditions can have a significant impact on quality of life. And in many cases, the condition of the mouth mirrors the condition of the body as a whole. Recent reports indicate a relationship between periodontal (gum) disease and stroke, heart disease, and pre-term low-birth-weight babies. Likewise, more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations, meaning your dentist may be the first health care provider to diagnose a health problem.
According to the recently released Surgeon General’s report on oral health in America, a large percentage of the population suffers from a reduced quality of life due to oral and facial pain. This pain is largely due to infections of the gums that support the teeth and can lead to tooth loss. More than 75 percent of the population is affected by some type of periodontal disease or gingivitis. Recent reports show that infections in the mouth can affect major organs. One example is bacterial endocarditis, a condition in which the lining of the heart and heart valves become inflamed. Poor mouth care also can contribute to oral cancer, which now takes more lives annually than cervical or skin cancer. In addition, poor oral health affects the digestive process, which begins with physical and chemical activities in the mouth. Problems here can lead to intestinal failure, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other problems.
You may be able to prevent two of the most common diseases of modern civilization, tooth decay (caries) and periodontal disease, simply by improving your diet. Decay results when the hard tissues are destroyed by acid products from oral bacteria. Certain foods and food combinations are linked to higher levels of cavity - causing bacteria. Although poor nutrition does not directly cause periodontal disease, many researchers believe that the disease progresses faster and is more severe in patients whose diet does not supply the necessary nutrients. Periodontal disease affects the supporting tissues of the teeth and is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Poor nutrition affects the entire immune system, thereby increasing susceptibility to many disorders. People with lowered immune systems have been shown to be at higher risk for periodontal disease. Additionally, today’s research shows a link between oral health and systemic conditions, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. So eating a variety of foods as part of a well¬ balanced diet may not only improve your dental health, but increasing fibre and vitamin intake may reduce the risk of other diseases.
