There are plenty of new phenomena almost every week in Tiktok, and some of them are related to coffee-related consumption or experiments.
Actually, some of these types of addictions do find combined courses in the platform, from Adult Tiktok to TikTok Shopping.
Both coffee and TikTok are addictive. They both give you a boost of energy and keep you awake. However, there is a difference between coffee and TikTok. Both can be actually compared in terms of dopamine to other sources of addiction, like porn, video game, betting, shopping, etc.
But what about coffee and Tiktok?
Coffee gives you a quick burst of energy. Tiktoks give you also a short-lasting social engagement.
Coffee is a popular drink around the world. It has been used for centuries as a stimulant and a source of energy. Coffee contains caffeine, which is a stimulant that increases alertness and improves mental performance.
TikTok is an app that allows people to create short videos and share them with their friends. The app was launched in 2016 and became extremely popular, being currently the primary social media app for younger generations.
Let’s check two of the most famous combinations of both addictions, coffee, and TikTok in the sorts of videos on the platform.
Lemon coffee trend on TikTok
In the last few days, a “miraculous” recipe that includes coffee and lemon in its composition and promises to reduce measures and lose weight in just a few days went viral on TikTok.
Caffeine may assist in improving mood, memory, and wakefulness. Lemon, on the other hand, contains about 6% citric acid in each unit, regardless of the classification, having high bactericidal, antioxidant, healing, depurative, digestive, and detoxifying power, besides being a facilitator in fat metabolization.
But watch out, several nutritionists explained that the mixture has no scientific proof that it helps us lose weight. In summary, lemon and coffee can offer us a wide range of benefits, but mixing the two is not synonymous with a drink that makes us lose weight, and it is even more interesting to consume them separately.
What are the risks in ingesting the mixture?
Exacerbated amounts or more frequently for those who do not usually drink coffee can cause adverse effects, such as insomnia, nervousness, agitation, irritability, stomach pain from the increase in gastric juice, accelerated heartbeat, and muscle tremors.
Nowadays some recipes go viral and we feel like making them too. So it was with this recipe for Dalgona Coffee, which started popping up in our feed, mainly from TikTok.
But after we saw how it is made, we realized that it is nothing more than the whipped coffee our parents used to make when we were little! Sure, it wasn’t so whipped, but the principle is the same. Beat instant coffee with sugar and a little water until it is creamy and then add the milk.
Dalgona Coffee is a drink from South Korea, and as we have already mentioned, it is nothing more than instant coffee beaten with water and sugar until it is extremely creamy. From what we have researched, India is also said to be the inventor of the recipe.
