Dont drink bubble tea anymore (forwarded mail)
I will roughly translate this articles which is in Chinese.
Bubble tea brings alot of sweet excitement to our taste buds but it is also very harmful to health. Milk essence is the main ingredient in bubble tea. Ten cups of fresh milk cannot match the taste of of a teaspoon of milk essence. The main ingredient of milk essence is hygrogenated vegetable oil, a type of transfat. Experts says that a glass of 500ml of bubble tea a day far exceed the allowable limit of transfat for any person. It will lead to heart and blood vessel diseases
Milk essence gives the bubble tea the fragrance and make it tasty. The fragrance and tastiness derived from a type of chemical. This chemical has trace of arsenic, lead, copper and many harmful minerals. Long term consumption can lead to heart and blood vessel disease, cancer, asthma and other health complications. It reduces the IQ of children.
Consuming the black bubbles is equivalent to consuming plastic. Normally these bubbles were made from casava (tapioca) powder. This alone does not give the rubbery texture. To make it more rubbery, millet protein is added. Some "black hearted" businessmen felt that this is still not rubbery enough. so, an artificial plastic powder is added. This type of artificial plastic material will never be digested and absorbed into the body. It will remain in the body and cause havoc to our health. You can imagine what will happen to your health after prolonged consumption of transfat and plastic!!!!
FOR YOUR HEALTH SAKE, PLEASE ABSTAIN FROM BUBBLE TEA.
