Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9959427A1] The invention includes co-processed compositions containing at least one acidulent and at least one water-soluble crystalline compound for use in shelf-stable low-moisture comestible, confectionery, dentifrice, or pharmaceutical products containing acid-sensitive additives. The invention also includes methods of minimizing the degradation of an acid-sensitive additive by at least one acidulent in low-moisture comestible, confectionery, dentifrice, or pharmaceutical products that contain at least one acidulent by using the co-processed compositions of the present invention. The invention also includes methods of increasing salivation and methods of removing or preventing the deposition of plaque on teeth using the co-processed compositions of the present invention. Examples of low-moisture comestible, confectionery, pharmaceutical or dentifrice products in which the co-processed compositions may be used are chewing gum, bubble gum, instant beverages, frozen desserts, toothpaste and dental floss.
