Here are 7 interesting facts you didn’t know about chocolate (or at least I didn’t know…until now.) 🙂
Cocoa has theobromine, a molecule that is more effective at protecting teeth than fluoride. In fact, there’s even a toothpaste made from chocolate (sort of.) Theobromine is also the part of chocolate that is bad for your dogs. Dogs can’t metabolize the theobromine as quickly as we do which makes them susceptible to theobromine poisining.
(Incidentally, the sugar & other ingredients in the chocolate we eat isn’t good for your teeth, so don’t go thinking you can start brushing with Hershey’s.) 🙂
