Caution recommended with some Recaldent Toothpaste
CPP-ACP is derived from casein, a protein found in milk, and is generally recognized as safe ("GRAS"). In early 1999, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) accepted the CPP-ACP GRAS notification.
CPP-ACP contains no lactose, the carbohydrate in milk that can cause gastrointestinal upset sometimes seen with dairy-based products. Therefore, despite its dairy origin, gastrointestinal symptoms are not seen with CPP-ACP.
However, RECALDENTTM(CPP-ACP) is manufactured from the cow's milk protein casein. People with an allergy to milk protein should avoid products containing RECALDENTTM(CPP-ACP).
It's encouraged to always review and update your medical history with your dentist.
