ABSTRACT

Context: diet remains an important aspect for causation of dental caries. There could be many food items might prove to have hidden acidogenic/cariogenic potential. Aims: A cross over study was conducted to determine the inherent pH and acidogenic potential of various commercially available preparations of chyawanprash in Indian market. Settings and Design: 10 volunteers were chosen and each volunteer was subjected to three test products after a week’s wash out period. 10% sucrose solution was used as positive control. Base line plaque pH along with readings at 0,5,10,15,20,25,30 minutes after consumption of test food were recorded. Methods and Material: three commercially available chyawanprash brands were compared with 10% sucrose solution. Statistical analysis used: Changes in pH were assessed using ANOVA. Results: No statistical difference in pH readings was observed among all 3 test products (P > 0.05). Conclusions: Chyawanprash can be considered as an acidogenic food item and diet can be modified accordingly for children with high caries risk consuming this preparation.

Keywords: dental caries, chyawanprash, acidogenic food item, cariogenic food item.
