If sugar harms teeth, why are toothpastes sweet?

My tooth starts aching when I use a certain brand of tooth paste (The Gel Variety). I notice that the particular paste tastes sweeter than others. The toothache subsides when I switch the toothpaste brand. Is this possible? Has someone else experienced this?

The toothpastes are not sweetened with sugar, at least not the ADA-approved ones.

you might be allergic to the specific contents in the paste itself, not because of the sugar content.
