Demineralization potential of different concentrations of gelatinized wheat starch.


Six subjects wore intraoral devices carrying bovine enamel blocks covered with a layer of Streptococcus mutans. They swished solutions of 5% glucose or maltose, or sols or gels of 3, 5, 10, 15, or 20% gelatinized wheat starch in the mouth for 3 X 1 min. Demineralization was measured after 45 min by determining the change in iodide permeability (delta Ip) of… (More)
