If you’re excited to try out toothpaste tablets, you’re going to be disappointed by Bite Toothpaste Bits.
Bite Toothpaste Bits are a sustainable alternative to traditional toothpaste in which they ditch the toothpaste tubes for a glass jar to reduce plastic waste. However, the good things about Bite end there.
The tablets don’t dissolve well, they don’t leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean afterwards, and you’re stuck picking bits out of your teeth for the rest of the night.
This article will explain everything you need to know about Bite Toothpaste Bits.
Bite Toothpaste Bits
Bite Bits are these unique toothpaste tablets that dissolve after you chew them and start brushing with a wet toothbrush.
Specifically, these tablets are the flagship product from Bite, a brand known for their sustainable approach to plastic free toothpaste and keeping products palm oil free unlike other toothpaste brands.
Having tried many other toothpaste tablets, I can safely say that there are way better options on the market than Bite toothpaste bits.
The star ingredient in Bite Bits is nano hydroxyapatite, a natural replacement for fluoride which is commonly found in regular toothpaste.
In addition to nHA, Bite also includes a few other ingredients to improve your oral health:
Erythritol: reduces the amount of bacteria in your mouth
Calcium carbonate: gently polishes your teeth
Xylitol: a natural, antimicrobial sweetener
I like that this ingredient list is cleaner than your regular drugstore toothpaste and is formulated without fluoride.
Bite Toothpaste Bits Review
While these toothpaste tablets are better for the environment that other normal toothpaste, I just cannot recommend them to brush your teeth with.
I tried the fluoride-free Fresh Mint toothpaste tablets from Bite and was sorely disappointed.
The mint flavor was barely noticeable, and my mouth still felt gross after brushing. In fact, I felt like I needed to brush my teeth all over again.
That being said, I did not try the Mint Charcoal or Berry Twist flavors which may be better than Fresh Mint.
Have you ever wondered what brushing your teeth with gravel feels like? Well, that’s a decent comparison to brushing with Bite toothpaste bits.
These toothpaste tablets were difficult to chew and barely dissolved as I brushed. After I finished my two minute brushing routine, I noticed that there were still bits of the toothpaste tablets trapped in my teeth.
The one redeeming quality from Bite is their plastic free packaging. I like how the tablets come in small, recyclable glass bottles that are convenient to travel with.
Summary: is Bite toothpaste good?
No, Bite toothpaste bits are not good.
I didn’t like them at all, and I wasn’t even expecting much in the first place. Bite bits don’t dissolve well, and they won’t leave your mouth feeling fresh and minty afterwards.
That being said, I do appreciate Bite’s commitment as a zero waste brand and for creating products for people who prefer to stay away from fluoride toothpastes.
I just hope they make products that actually work in the future.
