Starbucks Green Tea Health benefits?

Question by paula m: Starbucks Green Tea Health benefits?
When I go to Starbucks I always order the Tazo Iced Green Tea with sweetener. I know that adding sugar isn’t good, but besides that, does this type of iced green tea still have antioxidants and all the nutritional benefits as traditional green tea? Even if they add sweetener will I still get all of the benefits? What are the major differences? Thanks so much :)

I don’t know the exact nutritional value of this Starbucks drink, but I’m guessing that it’s not that healthy. There is probably a lot of sugar, fat, and calories in the drink. This will basically cancel out the nutritional value of the antioxidants in the green tea. Sorry!
If you’re really looking for something healthy, start drinking hot or iced green tea, without sweetner. You will eventually learn to love it!
