DuPont Nutrition & Health Aims to Promote Good Oral Health with Xylitol at FDI Annual World Dental Congress

Following the acquisition of Danisco in May 2011, DuPont has become the world’s premier specialty food ingredients and food safety business. Continuing the legacy of bringing health to everyday life, DuPont Nutrition & Health will promote the unique dental benefits of xylitol at the FDI Annual World Dental Congress this coming August in Hong Kong.

The company uses several condition-specific platforms as the basis for its nutrition and health portfolio to meet customers’ wants and needs. These platforms encompass key areas including oral, cardiovascular, digestive, immune health and bone health, as well as weight management and sports performance.

Xylitol is a specialty sweetener branded as XIVIA™ under the DuPont™ Danisco® range of products. XIVIA™ is a naturally occurring polyol and is widely approved and extensively used in chewing gum, confectionery, oral hygiene and pharmaceutical products. It is recognised by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to play an active role in reducing dental plaque.

The unique dental benefits of XIVIA™, backed by strong science and clinical trials, have led to recommendations by numerous dental associations around the world. Visitors will be able to find out more how XIVIA™ works to act against tooth decay among many other dental benefits at the DuPont Nutrition & Health stand. 

For those who are environmentally aware, they also can learn how the company commits to reduce the global carbon footprint by producing XIVIA™ from a sustainable wood source. There also will be refreshing peppermint chewing gum available for visitors to sample.

Visit DuPont at FDI World Dental Congress, 29 August –1 September 2012, in Hong Kong, Stand C06 and C08.
