Abstract White cheese and sugarless yoghurt are frequently consumed traditional Turkish foods. The aim of this study was to assess their acidogenic potential when eaten alone or following a rinse with sucrose solution. Plaque pH was measured by a pH microelectrode at baseline to determine the resting plaque pH and at time intervals of 1-60 min after rinsing with 10\% sucrose solution or eating the test food for 1 min. White cheese consumption for 1 min increased the plaque pH. When white cheese was eaten 5 min after rinsing with 10\% sucrose solution, the plaque pH rose rapidly. After sugarless yoghurt consumption, the pH fell to a similar minimum as for sucrose after 5 min but returned to baseline levels after 30 instead of 60 min. Consumption of sugarless yoghurt after a sucrose rinse initially reduced the plaque pH further but did not affect the time taken for pH to regain baseline levels. Copyright 2007 S. Karger AG, Basel.
