ABSTRACT
Liquorice extracts and confections reduced enamel dissolution in acidic buffers and saliva/glucose incubations by a direct effect on solubility, and by inhibiting the fall in pH on incubation. These actions may be attributed to the solubility-reducing, glycolysis-inhibiting, and buffering properties of glycyrrhizinic acid, a constituent of liquorice.
