Scientists have found two ingredients in common liquorice that eliminate the major bacteria (Streptococcus) responsible for tooth decay and periodontal disease – the leading cause of tooth loss in both children and adults!

In a recent study it was found that these ingredients can play a role in preventing and also treating tooth decay and periodontal disease! So if you are unsure what to give your kids as treats this Halloween, hand out liquorice – the candy equivalent to a toothbrush!
