Abstract

Streptococcus mutans suspensions were incubated with each of the sweeteners in suspending media of increasing complexity. The lower pH levels were generally attained by sucrose and glucose; higher pH values were obtained with sorbitol, trichlorosucrose, and xylitol, respectively. The acidogenicity of sucrose was more often decreased by the presence of trichlorosucrose than by the presence of xylitol.
