Tea Whiteners Are Not Harmful: Pakistan Dairy Association

Representatives of Pakistan Dairy Association (PDA) met with Senator Mian Muhammad Ateeq Shaikh, member Senate Standing Committee on Science & Technology and explained that tea whiteners are free of any chemicals or harmful substances.

PDA wanted to clarify the misconceptions that exist and have been promoted about packaged dairy over the last one year. The senate Standing Committee of Science and Technology met last week and raised concerns about manufacturing and selling of sub standard tea whiteners.

The PDA representatives clarified that tea whiteners, also known as creamers are globally approved products that are composed of Milk Solids Non Fats, Vegetable Fats, internationally approved & permissible food additives -. Hence tea whiteners are free of any chemicals or harmful substances and completely safe for tea and coffee making. They said that tea whiteners are manufactured and sold by large responsible corporates who not only ensure the highest quality standards in manufacturing, but who also work to uplift the livelihoods of the farmers and rural communities.

Vegetable fats in tea whiteners have many benefits like no cholesterol, better consistency, better mouth-feel, good product stability, good taste and more economical cup of tea.

On tea whiteners, the team confirmed that there are no harmful chemicals or ingredients, and that consumers should use tea whiteners in their tea or coffee confidently. The team invited Mian Ateeq, and other members of the Senate Standing Committee on Science and Technology to visit their manufacturing facilities to gain complete confidence on the safety of the process.

PDA recommended that in the next standing committee meeting, the members should get an independent viewpoint by inviting a senior member of Pakistan Society of Food Scientist and Technologists.

Mian Ateeq said

“I have had detailed discussions with members of the PDA, and through explanation of the recipe, processing and composition of tea whiteners accompanied with scientific evidence, they have clarified that the tea whiteners are perfectly safe  and suitable for all ages of tea consumers.  I have also assured PDA that we will give them the opportunity to present their facts in the next senate committee meeting for issuing a clarification statement.”

    Tea Whiteners become harmful when some people consider them as milk and give there kids thinking “daba pack” milk is better than open milk………companies need to put a disclaimer in bold saying “Not Milk”

  • Neither harmful nor Milk :(

    I think Propakistani should limit the number of sponsored posts. Or atleast mention the word “Sponsored” clearly.

      Hi,
      Firstly Miss Sehab if you are to raise allegation on a product then please kindly provide evidence for such comments. How can multinationals and local companies of such vast setup make and provide such a product ? We circulate news without even checking its authenticity.

      No such Surf or other chemicals are being added. Being a member of dairy manufacturing facility i can assure you no such thing is happenning. All products are approved by PCSIR labs and are being regularly audited by Govt and third parties.

      Tea whitners are simply milk products made from milk and vegetable fat. I think above article is self explanatory on is it harmful or not for usage in tea.

      Hope my answer satisfies you

  • Sehab Khan

    o bhai jo cheez peeny k liye mana ha, to Tea ma mila k kya sink ma dal dain, wo nahi peety

    • Faraz Muhammad Akhtar

      Miss you use vegetable fat/oil ( Cooking oils) in your daily cooking as well as being used in biscuits, ice cream, margarine etc.
      Kindly research a bit on the topic before spread false claims
