 Gold Flavoured Tea Neither Harmful Nor Beneficial to Health, Say Experts

22-carat gold tea contains such a minute amount of gold that it neither harms nor benefits consumers, reveal experts.

According to Khalid Sharif, Director of the Food Control Department at Dubai Municipality, 'gold tea' Gulf News reported.

Addressing the claims that gold tea is merely a commercial product that allegedly exploits consumers, the senior municipal official clarified that a warning has not been issued against tea mixed with gold, because the quantity of the element is very little and it is the same as adding cardamom to the tea.

Sharif said that the gold merely adds a distinct flavour to the drink.

He said that the only awareness they have given to the public is not to believe that the gold properties will be beneficial.

Meanwhile, the cafe founder, who has been selling tea with gold in Dubai for the last month, also clarified that he never claimed that the gold has beneficial health benefits.
