I read about this a long time ago.. and wonder if others have . The pH levels for those who ate cheese, however, increased rapidly at each interval, suggesting that cheese has anticavity properties.

A pH level lower than 5.5 puts a person at risk of tooth erosion, which is a process that wears away tooth enamel. "The higher the pH level is above 5.5, the lower the chance of developing cavities," explains Vipul Yadav, lead author of the study.

The study findings showed that the rising pH levels in the cheese group might have occurred because of increased saliva production, which could have been caused by chewing. Also, various compounds found in cheese may adhere to tooth enamel and help protect teeth from acid.
