Four misunderstandings of drinking beverages

Misunderstanding 1: "Three fine waters" is a harmful drink

“Three essences” refers to beverages made with saccharine, flavors and colorings, because they not only do not have any nutrients, and they can also cause chronic harm to humans when they are regularly consumed. China’s Food Sanitation Law stipulates that such “three-scented” drinks are strictly prohibited for production and sales.

This is the usual way of saying that the "three essences" is not scientific. Let us take a look at the popular soft drinks in the market: including "cola", "fruity milk" and various fruity beverages circulating in the vast rural market in summer. Which one is not close to this "three essences"?

Saccharin, coloring matter, essence, and sodium benzoate are all additives that are allowed in soft drinks. Which ones are qualified depends only on whether they meet the national standards and related laws. In fact, if saccharin is used according to national standards and is controlled below 0.15g/kg, it can provide a sweetness of 6% sucrose to beverages based on 400 times sweetness. If you add cyclamate according to the standard, you can achieve sweetness completely. 8 to 10% of the request. The amount of saccharin does not need to exceed the standard, and cyclamate does not have to exceed the standard to process sweet and soft natural beverages.

Sodium benzoate is used as a preservative, allowing limited amounts to be added to beverages. The limit standards set by our country are much stricter than international standards. For example: the sodium value of sodium benzoate is 0-5 in the world, equivalent to a life-saving harmless dose of 60kg for an adult, 300mg per day; while in China, 0.2g/kg is prescribed in beverages, that is, an adult drinks one litre per day. Drinks, sodium benzoate 200mg, lower than the internationally established ADI value.

The same food coloring and flavoring are not so terrible, because we can use the national standard to achieve the ideal coloring and flavoring purposes without causing any harm to the human body. We cannot, as some media say, think that "a beverage without preservatives, colors, and saccharin is the best beverage."

Myth #2: Water Drinks One-sided Stressed Minerals or Overemphasis on Purity

Many consumers believe that the higher the mineral content in water, the better, but it is not. Drinking water should contain moderate amounts of balanced minerals, but high mineral content does not fully account for the vigor of the water. On the contrary, when the mineral content in the water exceeds the standard, it will also harm human health. For example, when the content of iodide in drinking water is 0.02-0.05 mg/L, it is beneficial to human body, and when it is greater than 0.05 mg/L, it will cause iodine poisoning.

Mineral water should contain some beneficial minerals such as calcium/magnesium/potassium. If the content is too high, it will not only be unfavorable to humans but also harmful. It is simply a "hard water" with poor quality.

It is not purer water, the better, because the human body fluid is slightly alkaline, and the pure water is weakly acidic. If you drink the slightly acidic water for a long time, the internal environment will be destroyed. Drinking purified water for a long time will also increase the loss of calcium. Drinking pure water for a long time can lead to malnutrition of the body.

Misunderstanding 3: Drinking Drinks is to Drink Nutrition

Many parents give children drinks to supplement their nutrition. Representative beverages include: vegetable protein beverages such as almond milk, walnut butter; fruity beverages such as milk, fruit juice drinks, and the like. The protein content of vegetable protein drinks is ≥ 0.6%. Such a low protein content is much lower than that of milk (protein content ≥ 2.9%), but the price of these drinks is several times higher than that of milk.

Where can we talk about nutrition? Let's take a look at the fruit-flavored milk circulating in the market. Some products have a protein content of only 0.32%. Many milk drinks have a much lower protein content than rice soup. Some people think that drinks contain sugar and vitamins and are more nutritious than water. Therefore, drinking fruit drinks instead of drinking water and eating fruit, and some consumers even think that orange is mostly "fresh orange juice". In fact, the difference between it and "three fine waters" is only 10% more juice. The main function of most beverages (especially popular beverages) is to solve people's liking problems, and we cannot overpower their nutritional functions.

Misunderstanding 4: Drink a beverage to quench your thirst, drink = drinking water

According to the survey, many young people like to use drinks as drinking water. Water and beverages are not functionally equivalent. Because beverages contain high sugars, proteins, flavors, and pigments and some preservatives, it is not easy for people to feel hunger after drinking. The use of beverages instead of drinking water will not only reduce the appetite for the body but also reduce digestion and absorption. Long-term consumption of carbonated beverages containing caffeine can cause excess calories, stimulate blood lipids, and increase cardiovascular burden. As a diuretic, caffeine can cause excessive urination and dehydration. In addition, for children, carbonated beverages can destroy the enamel of the outer layer of the teeth and cause tooth decay.
