Aluminium Silicat in Tea powder 

english, TEXT

Having heard quite some stories about pathological effects of aluminum to the human body I am quite astonished just having considered buying a package of instant tea of brand Tea of India containing – amongst others – non-dairy milk powder (which would perfectly support my vegan diet) and – shocking – aluminium silicate. So, while I am no longer using antiperspirants containing aluminium to put on my skin, I would  now get this substance by drinking tea into my body!? And even that not enough: tea of India is labeling that nutrition fact on their packaging, while on other products the consumers get no idea at all that tea ‘naturally’, contains/accumulates aluminium – according to several studies made on this topic:
