Dalgona coffee seems to have taken the internet by storm, gaining worldwide popularity. The whipped drink was popularised on social media as people stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic and became viral, especially on TikTok. Dubbed the ‘quarantine drink’ or quarantine coffee’, you can also try making own dalgona coffee while being stuck at home. But does this trendy drink have any health benefits?
You can make this fluffy drink healthier with some simple tips and tricks.
- May aid weight loss: Swapping coconut sugar for regular table sugar may be a healthier choice if used moderately. It contains small amounts of minerals, antioxidants, fibre, which may help you shed the pounds. Just ensure that you use it sparingly just as you would use white sugar as it is high in fructose, which has been shown to promote metabolic syndrome in obese individuals.
- A lower glycemic index: Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index (GI) of around 54, compared with table sugar, which has a score of around 60. It is claimed that coconut sugar causes a slightly lower rise in blood sugar than refined sugar.
- May help with acidity: Drinking dalgona coffee may also help relieve acidity as the beverage uses milk, which can help ease digestion issues. There’s some evidence suggesting that calcium and protein content in milk may help relieve heartburn.
