Beware of the sugar killer in milk tea

  A few days ago, the first quarterly reports of major listed companies have been released one after another, and the loss of the old milk tea brand “Xiang Piao Piao” has attracted attention from the outside world. He said that the ceiling of cup brewed milk tea is far from being reached, and the overall market space for milk tea is still expanding. Cup brewing and freshly brewed tea can jointly cultivate milk tea consumption habits.
  Indeed, nowadays young people love milk tea, and many people have a cup of tea every day. No matter how long the queue is, there will be more people waiting to buy a cup of their favorite milk tea. Especially when you are tired from work, chewing the pearls in the milk tea in your mouth can relieve the pressure.
  But regular consumption of this sugar-sweetened beverage can lead to extremely serious health problems. Therefore, many health experts at home and abroad have come forward and sounded the warning.
sweet burden

  There are two kinds of milk tea, one is ordinary milk tea, that is, creamer plus tea, which usually contains non-dairy creamer, tea and sugar. The other is a tea latte, which usually contains milk, tea, and sugar.

Cream in commercial milk tea increases risk of chronic disease

  These two milk teas will add small ingredients such as pearls, boba, taro balls, cold days, cream, and nuts.
  Commercially available milk tea has four “troubles”: high sugar, high fat, trans fatty acids, and excessive caffeine.
  First of all, the cheaper milk tea contains trans fats in non-dairy creamer. Long-term intake will cause chyle plasma (high triglycerides in blood), induce vascular sclerosis, and increase the risk of heart disease and cerebrovascular accident.
  Therefore, the comparison suggests adjusting to a healthier version, a tea latte, that replaces the creamer with milk.
  However, some stores use milk substitutes such as coffee-modified milk, adding other ingredients to the milk, which increases the taste and reduces the cost. It is not pure milk and has health risks.
  There are also shops that mix other materials into the tea latte to ensure the taste and flavor, but they are collectively referred to as tea latte to the outside world. A person in the catering industry in Taiwan, China said: “If the milk tea you buy outside tastes better than the one you make with tea and milk at home, then it must be something added.” As for whether this thing is healthy or not, another Say.

  The calories in a medium cup of bubble tea are equivalent to a piece of cheesecake.

  Secondly, milk tea itself is high in calories and contains a lot of triglycerides.
  The calories in a medium cup of bubble tea are equivalent to a piece of cheesecake. Drinking it for a long time may lead to excessive blood fat, inflammation of the pancreas, and blockage of blood vessels, leading to diseases such as arteriosclerosis, myocardial infarction, and stroke. Margarine, in particular, increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  Again, drinking a lot of milk tea with unadjusted sweetness every day may induce diabetes.
  There are many factors that cause diabetes, including familial genetic factors, but long-term dietary patterns also play a big role.
  If you drink sugary drinks and sweets frequently for a long time, you need to secrete a lot of insulin to keep your blood sugar constant. In the long run, insulin secretion can be depleted, or because fat accumulates in the abdomen, causing insulin resistance. These can cause blood sugar out of control, and then develop into diabetes.
  It is not that drinking milk tea will cause diabetes, it also depends on the amount and frequency of drinking. Previously, there was news that a woman in Guangdong had fulminant diabetes after drinking milk tea and was admitted to the ICU. She was admitted to the ICU because of ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is a common complication of diabetes, which is caused by drinking a lot of sweet drinks, milk tea, or eating a lot of high-calorie, high-glycemic index foods on the basis of diabetes, but not enough insulin to digest blood sugar.
  Ketoacidosis is generally in the body of diabetic patients. Some cells are not secreted enough, and a large amount of carbohydrates ingested cannot be metabolized, and the body will metabolize fat instead. Fat will produce keto acid, which accumulates in the body, which will lead to acidification of the blood, which can cause coma and death in severe cases.
  Most ketoacidosis occurs in people with type 1 diabetes. Drinking a lot of sugar-sweetened milk tea may also lead to the gradual loss of islet cell function over time.
  Diabetes is an increasingly serious problem in China, with 1 in 10 people suffering from diabetes, and only 1 in 4 diabetics receiving regular treatment. Therefore, the sugar in milk tea, although sweet, is worthy of vigilance. Singapore medical media said that sugar, milk and cream in commercially available milk tea can increase the risk of chronic diseases.
  Some medical professionals in Singapore suggest that it is advisable to drink no more than 2 cups of milk tea a week.
Fruit base is more harmful

  Small ingredients for milk tea, such as boba, pearls, and taro balls, are high in carbohydrates, high in calories, and basically nutrient-poor—and sugar water is usually added to keep them moist.
  Full sugar bubble tea is considered one of the most unhealthy drinks. Fruit-based teas may seem healthy, but they’re actually worse choices: more sugar is often needed to remove the sourness of the fruit.
  If you want to drink pearl milk tea healthier, you can choose a smaller cup size, choose pure green tea, oolong or black tea, only add less than 30% sugar, and ask to replace the creamer with low-fat, fresh milk, without cream, Do not add small ingredients such as pearls and taro balls.
  Finally, drinking milk tea often has the problem of excessive caffeine intake. Because the concentration of caffeine in commercially available milk tea is high, if the daily caffeine intake of adults exceeds 300 ml, it may cause high intraocular pressure in the long run, leading to glaucoma. 300ml of caffeine is roughly equivalent to two medium cups of milk tea.
  In addition, there is a particularly easily overlooked detail: when the weather is cold, people usually choose hot milk tea, and the hot milk tea is extra warm in the hand.
  Medical professionals said that although most packaging and tableware materials are heat-resistant, they are not safe and non-toxic. The inner waterproof membrane of plastic cups or paper cups may release toxic substances such as plasticizers when heated. If you drink it every day, I am afraid it will affect your health. Plasticizers have been linked to gynecological cancers such as breast cancer and endometrial cancer.

Fruit teas tend to have more sugar added
Brewing your own is healthier

  Chinese people are not the only ones who love milk tea. The average Thai consumes 6 cups of bubble tea per person per month, compared to 3 cups per month in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia. However, the consumption of milk tea by many girls in China far exceeds this level, which has to be vigilant.
  Residents of the Tibetan region added butter to their milk in the 10th century. Among Western countries, the British have the habit of drinking tea the most. The tea that the British often drink is to mix hot tea with cold milk. It’s just that they didn’t emphasize the name “milk tea”.
  In 1660, the British introduced tea. In 1655, a Dutch traveler first experienced milk tea at a Cantonese banquet. Indians imitated British habits. In 1680, milk tea was introduced to Europe. At that time, Europeans drank tea with milk, mainly because the tea was of poor quality and bitter, and milk added flavor.
  Milk teas from Thailand, Iran, India and Pakistan have added spices, common ones include cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, fennel, tamarind meat, etc.
  After 11 centuries of testing, pure milk and tea (or spice) can basically be considered a healthy drink. However, there are still risks involved, the primary factor being the quality of the milk and tea. While green and black teas have a role in lowering the risk of diabetes, arthritis, and cancer, many teas have pesticides that are too high.
  Commercially available tea has repeatedly been exposed to the news that the pesticide exceeds the standard and the export is blocked. Drinking strong tea for a long time is also bad for the heart. Excessive consumption of milk will also cause a burden on the body, and the recommended amount is less than 400 ml per day.
  Compared with commercially available milk tea with higher health risks, it is a better choice to brew milk tea at home. People who don’t like caffeine can try to replace other tea leaves with South African national treasure tea (decaffeinated).
  Freshly prepared drinks such as milk tea, or drinks made by yourself, it is best to drink them as soon as possible, not more than 2 hours, especially sugary drinks, which are very easy to breed bacteria. There are some bacteria in the human mouth itself. From the moment the mouth touches the cup, the bacteria begin to grow.
  Beverages you drink overnight must be heated to above 70 degrees Celsius to be sterilized. The beverage is placed in the refrigerator at 4 degrees Celsius, which can inhibit the growth of microorganisms. Therefore, if the beverage cannot be consumed within 2 hours, it must be placed in the refrigerator.
