“The effects of smoothies on enamel erosion: an in situ study,” Hanein Ali, D. Clin. Dent thesis, 2012, University of Leeds. The author reports:
“Conclusion: Smoothies are acidic and have high TA levels. Innocent® strawberries and bananas smoothie had an erosive potential to the teeth. However, its erosive effect was significantly less compared to citric acid after 21-days pH cycling protocol using an in situ model.”
