(Zhengzhou City First People's Hospital Wang Zhanfeng) autumn is a harvest season, but also a romantic season ... Suddenly, "the first cup of milk tea in autumn" became a terrier, a circle of friends, shaking sound full of show red envelopes and milk tea. But you know what? Autumn's first cup of milk tea may not be for you!
Fu Hui, chief of the nutrition department of the First People's Hospital of Zhengzhou City, said that milk tea can be drunk, but is not recommended to drink often, because the milk tea contains trans fatty acids, high sugar and artificial sweeteners, caffeine and other substances may affect human health.
source of trans fatty acids is hydrogenated vegetable oil in creamer. Excessive intake can make the body obese, increase LDL cholesterol in the body, increase the incidence of arteriosclerosis and diabetes, and even the risk of malignant tumors. High intake of trans fatty acids can also accelerate cognitive decline, triggering Alzheimer's disease, and milk tea has a negative effect on infants and young children and young people in their development. The World Health Organization recommends that no more than 1% of total food calories (approximately equivalent to 2 grams) be generated daily from trans fats, a goal that has been used in our country for assessment. However, some milk tea in the trans fatty acid content of the phenomenon, the highest cup of 6.2 grams, far beyond the standard.
milk tea has been criticized for its high sugar content. Based on a cup of milk tea of 470ml, there is about 60g of total sugar, equivalent to eating 13 cubes of sugar. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Chinese Residents (2016), the daily intake of added sugar should not exceed 50 grams, preferably under 25 grams. Fortunately, when buying milk tea now, "sweetness" is a choice, we try to put as little sugar as possible, control sugar intake. Studies have shown that drinking too much sugary drinks increases the risk of diseases such as caries, obesity and type 2 diabetes. After drinking sugary drinks, bacteria in the mouth can ferment sugar and food residues and participate in the formation of dental plaques.
Although some milk tea claims to be "sugar-free", but "sweet", and let milk tea become "sweet" is sweet, saccharin and other non-nutritional synthetic sweeteners, if not used in accordance with national regulations, it may be harmful to the liver, nervous system.
tea, caffeine content is generally high, pregnant women and adolescents should not often drink. Excessive caffeine intake can lead to anxiety, insomnia, peptic ulcers, osteoporosis and other problems. Therefore, milk tea should be appropriate to stop. Small milk tea shops should be treated with caution, because raw materials and equipment are vulnerable to bacterial contamination, resulting in food safety problems, will bring greater health risks.
Hui reminder: the purchase of milk tea should choose a regular store. Try to choose milk tea made from fresh milk. Try not to add extra sugar (small ingredients in milk tea such as pearls, coconuts, puddings, fairy grass, etc. are sugary).
, however, milk tea is not a "flood beast" or "fatal poison", we should understand the nutritional characteristics of milk tea on the basis of whether they are suitable to drink, and drink too much. Occasionally drink a cup of milk tea is not a problem, can add a little sweetness to the intense work and life, if the sweet taste of daily attachment to milk tea, it will lead to a big hidden danger to the body.
