Abstract

Aim: This study aimed to analyze the physicochemical parameters variation of the homemade hibiscus
drink (Hibiscus sabdariffa) after contact with the oral cavity.
Methods and materials : The study took place from October 2010 to March 2012 at the F´elix Houphou¨et
Boigny University in Cocody, Cˆote d’Ivoire. The procedures were carried out at the Laboratory of
Analytical Chemistry and Bromatology of the Training and Research Unit in Pharmaceutical and Biological
Sciences, the Biochemistry Laboratory of the Emergency Medical Aid Service and the National Laboratory
of Public Health (LNSP). Potential hydrogen (pH), acidity, calcium, phosphorus and sugar were the
analyzed variables.
Results: The pH in drink discharges does not vary over time. Drink discharges have, over time, lower
calcium and higher phosphorus content than the starting drink.
Conclusion: Hibiscus drink would have an acid generating effect on the tooth, but its high concentration of
calcium and phosphorus would counterbalance this effect and could protect teeth against demineralization.

Keywords: Acidity, Dental contact, Calcium, Hibiscus drink, Phosphorus, Potential hydrogen, Sugars.
