TikTok “Healthy Coke” Recipe Will Erode Teeth More Than Coca-Cola

 

 

Recently, a “healthy” Coke recipe that has become very popular is actually worse on your teeth than the regular Coca-Cola. The new recipe that started on TikTok is a combination of balsamic vinegar and seltzer. While the recipe has piqued everyone’s interest, Dentists have stated that this recipe erodes one’s teeth more than regular coke. The recipe is a mix of two acids, which are what cause the erosion. The original Coca-Cola does have lots of sugar and can still have negative effects on your health, but the TikTok recipe has shown to have even worse effects.

Dentists say that Balsamic Vinegar is much kinder on the teeth when used on a salad, instead of bathing your teeth in it as a beverage. ” Edmond Hewlett, DDS, stated, “The more acidic the drink, the greater the risk of tooth erosion with frequent consumption”. Balsamic vinegar is not as acidic as most kinds of vinegar are, but when mixed with another acid it is more likely to erode the enamel.
