Sugar Acid Neutraliser™ is Colgate’s trade mark name for the technology it has developed to deliver maximum cavity protection consisting of arginine and an insoluble calcium compound. In Colgate® Maximum Cavity Protection plus Sugar Acid Neutraliser™ toothpaste, the insoluble calcium compound is calcium carbonate.

Arginine is an amino acid commonly found in proteins in foods, such as eggs, meats and poultry, milk and dairy products, vegetables, legumes, cereals and nuts. Arginine is also found in proteins naturally found in the human body. It is an important component of saliva which can help to prevent cavities.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. There are 20 amino acids; arginine is one of them and is found naturally in the body.

The arginine used in Colgate® Maximum Cavity Protection plus Sugar Acid Neutraliser™ toothpaste is naturally derived from plant/vegetable sources.
