Toronto-based start-up DoseBiome claims it has created the world’s first oral care drink, a natural tea drink called qīī [chee].
qīī is brewed from loose leaf tea and includes an ingredient called XyVita, which contains xylitol.
The company claims the XyVita formulation helps to reduce mouth acidity and lowers the risk of tooth decay.
The drink will be available in two flavours: Lemongrass Ginger Green tea and Classic Oolong Tea. Both flavours are made with organic loose tea leaves and sweetened with XyVita.
qīī founder Ted Jin said: “So much of what we drink contributes to poor oral health.
“Instead of addressing that at the end of the day by brushing, we have created a drink that restores the mouth in-between brushing, so that damage never begins.
“Innovation in oral care has been stagnant for decades. We’re looking to shake up the industry by introducing a new way to care for your mouth – in a delicious drink format delivered right to your door.
“We often take our oral health for granted. Finding easy, accessible ways to improve our habits is what motivates us at DoseBiome.”
