Every year it seems there is a new craze in the food and drink industry. This year all the hype is about Matcha Tea. Matcha tea is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves. While we all caught onto the green tea hype years ago because of its heightened amount of antioxidants (a substance that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism), it is said that one cup of Matcha Tea is comparable to three cups of green tea. But buyer beware, with every delicious latte and smoothie you buy, there are additional ingredients that one might not think of. A lot of coffee houses use concoctions where the first and main ingredient in these delicious drinks is SUGAR! Good old sugar, so good for your body and teeth. For example, a tall Matcha Latte from Starbucks contains 24g of sugar! SO before you go and satisfy your “healthy” and delicious Matcha craving, it might not be a bad idea to ask your barista to take a look at the ingredients and sugar content first. It just so happens that here at Innovation Drive Dental in Woodbridge, we are located directly beside a Starbucks. Kill two birds with one stone. Get your Match Tea fix and then come visit us for a cleaning and rid your mouth of all that additional sugar.
