Popular Coffee Shop Sealed in (LHR)
The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) sealed a Popular Coffee shop on Mahmood Kasuri Road and awarded Rs25,000 to an ice cream factory during raids here on Tuesday.
The coffee shop was sealed for poor cleanliness in kitchen, presence of insects, not having a food licence etc.
Meanwhile, PFA Director General Noorul Amin Mengal awarded cash to Hico Ice Cream Factory for maintaining hygienic environment.
PFA’s food safety teams under the supervision of Mr Mengal, Deputy Director (operations) Mr Farhan and food safety officers (FSO) raided several eateries and checked their production areas on Mahmood Kasuri Road, Gulberg II, Multan Road, DHA and other areas of the city.
PFA aims for a Healthy Punjab by ensuring the restaurants and bakeries abide by the food laws. The authority doesn’t just penalize the unhygienic food joints, it also encourages the eateries with rewards for maintaining the hygienic standards, remarked Mengal.
The teams also issued fine tickets of Rs25,000 to the International Bakery and Khalid Vermicelli at Ghalib Market and Latif Chowk, Vandala Road, Shahdara.
The PFA has issued improvement notices to 23 eateries, including Second Cup Popular Coffee, Gloria Jeans, Coffee Planet at DHA Phase 5, Malmo Sweets and Bakers at Bhobattiyan Chowk.
Coffee itself can also mess with your stomach. If you have problems with acid reflux or heartburn, then coffee and even tea might not be right for you.
And if you have high cholesterol and you don’t want your coffee adding to the problem, you need to use a paper filter to trap the cafestol, a compound in coffee that raises LDL cholesterol levels, says van Dam.Coffee’s not your friend if you’re prone to heartburn. Coffee is highly acidic and is irritating to the gastrointestinal tract. Switching to decaf won’t help: In fact some research has found that decaf increases stomach acid even more than caffeinated coffee. Neither will switching methods of brewing or roasting. Avoiding coffee is the only solution.
Caffeine’s not your friend if you have. Caffeine seems to be the main culprit by relaxing the sphincter muscle that normally keeps stomach acid from bubbling up the esophagus. Decaf coffee has significantly less of a reflux effect, studies have found.
