Xylitol chewing gum restores a proper acid-alkaline balance in the mouth, which inhibits bacteria and plaque formation. All Jenkki chewing gums
have been sweetened with xylitol, helping to prevent plaque build-up, cavities, ear and sinus infections.
Jenkki chewing gums have a refreshing and long-lasting taste.
All our products are gluten-free, sulfite-free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Our berry powders are manufactured from peel, pulp and seeds of the berries, after being dried at a low temperature (max 39°C) to preserve their valuable nutrients.
Berry powders contain the same active agents as fresh berries do, only in a more concentrated form.
The recommended daily intake is 2 grams, 1 teaspoon, of berry powder.
The benefit of berry powders compared to fresh berries is that the valuable agents in the seeds, such as the different fatty acids, can be used by the body.
When you eat fresh berries, the seeds move whole through the digestive system without having an effect.
Being low in calories and high in fiber, berry powders make an excellent addition to snacks and meals.
Including berries in any form in your diet will help to keep you healthy and slow down the passing of time. You have more energy and you feel more active.
Resveratrol, referred to as “the fountain of youth”, “a miracle ingredient”, and “the greatest discovery since antibiotics”, is especially abundant in dark berries like bilberry, cranberry, black currant, red currant and lingonberry.
Being quick and easy to use, our berry products are an excellent option for vegans, health-conscious moms, or just busy people who need a quick nutritious snack.
Make natural berry powder a daily habit: sprinkle on your morning muesli or oatmeal, mix with plain or vanilla yogurt, add to your favorite smoothie recipe, baking, to a fruit salad and a salad dressing, on top of pancakes, waffles and ice cream, and even to your meat sauce. Or just enjoy with warm water instead of tea.
Children love to prepare their own berry-yogurts!
A CHEWING GUM THAT PREVENTS TOOTH DECAY !
Jenkki Xylitol Chewing Gum, the world’s first xylitol-sweetened chewing gum since 1975.
Tooth decay and gum disease are serious problems, mainly due to excessive use of sugar.
The dental significance of xylitol was discovered in Finland in the early 1970s, when scientists at Turku University showed it could prevent caries. Xylitol has the ability, among other things, to reduce dental plaque formation, make plaque less adhesive, reduce cavities by up to 80%, demonstrate significant long-term reduction in caries (88-93%), assist in the remineralization of tooth enamel, reduce gum tissue inflammation and help with dry mouth and bad breath.
Xylitol also has potential as a treatment for osteoporosis. A group of Finnish researchers has found that dietary xylitol prevents weakening of bones in laboratory rats, and actually improves bone density.
Xylitol is a great option for those who are seeking to avoid ear infections. It is known to prevent the growth of certain bacteria, specifically the bacteria that causes dental cavities, sinus infections, and ear infections.
Xylitol is not only safe for pregnant and nursing women, but studies show that regular use significantly reduces the probability of transmitting the Streptococcus mutans bacteria, which is responsible for tooth decay, from mother to child during the first two years of life by as much as 80%.
Xylitol (Finnish ksylitoli) was first derived from birch trees in Finland in early 1970's and was first popularized in Europe as a safe sweetener for people with diabetes that would not impact insulin levels. Jenkki has developed consumer-friendly packages including small packs to fit into a pocket and bigger economy bags for family use. Treat your teeth with a Jenkki chewing gum after every meal.
