I received this information via forwarded email which explains the ugly facts of the Bubble Tea. I do not know how far it is true, but I do not want to take any chances where my kids are concerned. Most teenagers love this!
Bubble tea brings sweet excitement to our taste buds but it is also very harmful to health. Milk essence is the main ingredient in bubble tea. The main ingredient of milk essence is hydrogenated vegetable oil (trans-fat). Experts says that a glass of 500ml of bubble tea a day far exceed the dosage limit of trans-fat for human. It will lead to heart and blood vessel diseases.
Milk essence gives the bubble tea and make it very tasty. The fragrance and tastiness derived from a type of chemical. This chemical has trace of arsenic, lead, copper and many harmful minerals. Frequent consumption in long term will lead to heart and blood vessel disease, cancer, asthma and other health complications.
Consuming the black bubbles is equivalent to consuming . Normally these bubbles were made from cassava (tapioca) powder. This alone does not give the rubbery texture. To make it more rubbery, millet is added. To improve the mouth feel further, 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 trans-fat and plastic.
