Black Tea Helps in Better Digestion of Fondue

Black-TeaGroup of researchers in Switzerland and Germany will be soon finding a better beverage that will help in the digestion of fondue. Fondue, is a dish made by melting cheese.

The researchers conducted a research recently to find the most suitable beverage for the digestion of cheese. A study conducted by a group of experts on 20 healthy men and women between the age of 23 to 58 found that half of the people who drank Fendant de Valais white wine and kirsch took nine hours in digesting the cheese in fondue. On the other hand people who drank black tea digested the fondue in just four hours.

Moreover, the participants in both the groups exhibited similar symptoms such as heartburn, nausea or indigestion.

Mark Fox, an Associate Professor and Consultant Gastroenterologist at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, England said, “The findings applied to any high-calorie, high-fat meal, such as traditional Christmas feasts”.

He even said that the study clearly shows that black tea helps in better digestion of cheese, whereas, alcohol only complicated the process of breakdown and thus wine takes a lot of time than tea.
