A health expert warned the public on possible bad effects caused by drinking too much milk tea.
KAMI learned in a recent episode of ABS-CBN's health program Salamat, Dok that drinking excessive milk tea could cause Diabetes.
"'Pag nasobrahan tayo ng calories, saan ba pupunta 'yon? Dito sa taba natin. Mas lalo tayo tataba at mas mataas ang tsansa na magka-Diabetes"
According to Dr. Nemencio Nicodemus, an endocrinologist, milk tea contains added calories that our body doesn't need. He also added that despite the positive effects of milk and tea there is still a larger amount of sugar that people get in their milk teas.
"Ang pag-inom ng milk tea, added calories 'yan, hindi kailangan ng katawan natin. Kaya kung iinom ka niyan, dagdag-calories 'yan sa katawan mo"
"Mayroon namang nutritional value ang gatas pero kasi ang nilalagay naman natin dito sa ating milk tea, hindi lang gatas, mayroon pang iba. Mas marami iyong ibang nilalagay, lalo na 'yong asukal"
He further explained that 1 large-sized serving of milk tea contains 11 to 20 teaspoons of sugar or 400 calories which is way past the normal sugar level the human body needs according to the World Health Organization.
"On the average, may 5 at kalahating asukal ang nilalagay sa isang ganitong lalagyan ng milk tea."
"Ang sabi ng World Health Organization dapat hanggang 6 na kutsarita lang ng asukal ang dapat nating nako-consume maghapon na 'yon"
"Ang problema pag dinagdagan mo pa ng ibang ingredients. Sabi nila 'yong ibang tea daw 'pag dating sa gatas naman, 3 teaspoons of sugar ang laman niyan"
"Kapag nilagyan mo pa ng iba pa, kunwari nata de coco, lagyan pa natin ng creamer at iba pa. Dagdag pa 'yan na 3 kutsarita ulit bawat isa"
Dr. Nicodemus advised milk tea lovers to lessen their consumption to 1 milk tea per week to avoid gaining added calories.
"'Yong milk tea, kung talagang hindi maiiwasan, hangga't maaari, limitahan lang natin ng siguro once a week lang para hindi tayo madagdagan ng sobrang calories sa katawan natin"
