Ratatouille and your teeth

ratatouilleRatatouille is a great way to get your veggies. But if you roast the dish, you increase the acidity of its eggplant, zucchini and green bell peppers, according to recent research from Britain.

That makes the vegetables more likely to erode your tooth enamel. Stewing is better for teeth but hard on nutrients.

If you prefer using the oven, experts say go ahead and roast — just be sure to brush or rinse your mouth with water right after you eat to keep your chompers healthy.
