New Delhi: Beware, especially if you want to lose weight - don`t add milk to tea, or you would pile on the pounds.
"It means that we don`t get the health benefit from these compounds nor from milk protein. Therefore, it is always advised to take tea without milk." A study by scientists in Japan, reveals that extracts from tea leaves inhibit the absorption of fat in the guts of rats being fed high-fat diet. These rats also had less fat tissue on their bodies and lower fat content in their livers, reports the Journal of Nutrition. Hiroaki Yajima, a scientist with the Kirin Beverage Company in Japan who carried out the Japanese research, said: "Black tea extracts may prevent diet-induced obesity by inhibiting intestinal lipid absorption."
