“I’m strong to the finish because I eat me spinach!”


Strong Teeth

Strong Teeth!

Have you been eating your spinach like Popeye, but have found the spinach makes your teeth feel funny and chalky? Not only do you find spinach may get stuck in between your front teeth, but it may leave a strange texture to your teeth. “Spinach teeth” is caused high quantities of oxalic acid. In scientific terms, the oxalate crystals leak out from spinach as you chew which then coats your teeth. Don’t worry – eating spinach is not bad for your teeth.


       Beautiful Smile!

Chocolate, rhubarb, beets and kale are other foods that are high in oxalic acid. Spinach is a great vegetable that is high in calcium and helps promote a healthy lifestyle. To help remove that chalky coat, try brushing your teeth after eating spinach.
