No cancer threat from bubbles in bubble milk tea, ministry clarifies


  The Digital Economy and Society Ministry has urged people not to believe or share news or Internet posts which claim that consuming the "bubbles" of bubble milk tea will cause cancer.

The ministry, however, advised people against excessive consumption due to the risk of diabetes.

“The ministry’s Anti-Fake News Centre contacted the Thailand Food and Drug Administration to verify this information and was told that bubble milk tea had no polychlorinated biphenyls that could cause cancer as the posts claimed,” it said.

“The bubbles are made from tapioca flour, therefore eating them is no different from eating sweets made of flour,” it added. “However, excessive consumption of bubble milk tea could increase the risk of diabetes, as it contains high volume of sugar, syrup, non-dairy creamer and condensed milk, in addition to the flour from bubbles, making it a high-calorie drink and should be consumed sparingly.

“If you have a craving for bubble milk tea but are concerned about your health, try reducing the sugar or omitting the non-dairy creamer,” it suggested.
