New toothpaste substitutes cocoa extract for fluoride

Theodent relies on Rennou, a proprietary blend of a cocoa extract and other minerals that work together to strengthen teeth. The extract is a white crystalline powder with a chemical makeup similar to caffeine, according to Arman Sadeghpour, Ph.D., Theodent president and CEO.
