Does Decaf Coffee Have Caffeine

Facts About Decaf Coffee

Does Decaf Coffee Have Caffeine? The answer is yes. While USDA regulations stipulate that decaf should not exceed 0.10 percent caffeine on a dry basis in the package, comparison between brewed regular and decaf coffee shows that decaf appears to have at least 97% of caffeine removed. Therefore, the caffeine is Decaf coffee is insignificant. To put this into perspective, an average 12-ounce (354-ml) cup of coffee containing 180 mg of caffeine would have about 5.4 mg of caffeine in a decaffeinated state.Caffeine content in decaf coffee depends on the type of bean and the decaffeination process.

While 97 percent of the caffeine must be removed, the Robusta bean will have more caffeine left over than the Arabica bean after the decaffeination process is completed, which can lead to a lot of variance among brands.

The FDA does not require the amount of caffeine to be labeled on decaffeinated coffee products, but the upshot is that if you’re looking for less caffeine in your cup, you should pay attention to the type of bean that goes into it.

The average 12-ounce cup of decaf coffee – a Starbucks tall – usually contains between 3 and 18 milligrams of caffeine. (By comparison, an 8.4-ounce can of Red Bull contains 80 milligrams of caffeine) The average of amount of caffeine in regular coffee can vary significantly, usually between 140 and 300 mg.

How Are Decaf Coffee Beans Made

Decaf coffee beans are typically made by one of three methods, using either water, organic solvents or carbon dioxide to draw caffeine out of the coffee beans. However, the decaffeination process does alter the smell and taste of coffee, resulting in a milder flavor and different color.

All methods soak or steam green, unroasted coffee beans until the caffeine is dissolved or until the pores of the beans are opened. From there, the caffeine is extracted.

Here is a brief description of each method and how caffeine is extracted.

  • Solvent-based process: This method uses a combination of methylene chloride, ethyl acetate and water to create a solvent that extracts the caffeine. Neither chemical is found in coffee as they evaporate.
  • Swiss water process: This is the only organic method of decaffeinating coffee. It relies on osmosis to extract caffeine and guarantees a 99.9% decaffeinated product.
  • Carbon dioxide process: The newest method uses carbon dioxide, a compound naturally found in coffee as a gas, to remove the caffeine and leave other flavor compounds intact. While efficient, it’s also expensive.

Decaffeinated Coffee Loses Antioxidants During Extraction

All decaffeinated extraction methods either soak or steam the coffee beans with water in order to extract the caffeine. Soaking the beans is like brewing a very strong, concentrated cup of coffee. Steaming opens up the pores of the beans so whatever solvent is used can enter the beans and remove the caffeine.

Boiling or steaming water changes the coffee bean’s phytochemical structure during decaffeination. This is due to the exposure to extreme heat and the resulting hydrolysis of coffee’s chlorogenic acids that are water soluble antioxidants. Decaf coffee becomes chemically-altered and degraded compared to natural, non-decaffeinated coffee beans. Although both decaf and regular coffee lose antioxidant compounds during the roasting process, decaf coffee has a higher loss of chlorogenic acids after roasting that may be due to the chemical changes the coffee beans underwent during decaffeination.

Regular Coffee Vs Ganoderma Coffee

Ganoderma Coffee

Coffee is the most popular drink in the United States outside of water.   Some like expresso, latte, black, decaf, etc. However, all coffee is not equal. Some coffees are not healthy and some are. This brings me to my next point. Moreover, Regular coffee is not good for you. Here are a few facts about regular coffee:

1. High in acid, creating a PH imbalance in the body,

2. Increases insulin production, which creates a blood sugar rollarcoaster, and

3. Dehydrates the body (you have to drink 16-18 glasses of water to neutralize the acid found in one cup of regular coffee.)

4. Constricts blood vessels, reducing oxygen levels in the blood up to 30%,

5. Increases the risk of arthritis, diabetes, depression, obesity, etc.,

 

Benefits Of  Ganoderma Coffee

One of the most health coffees is 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma infused coffee. For over 4,000 years in Asian medicines, Ganoderma Lucidum (“Reishi”) has been widely considered to be the “Miraculous King of Herbs.” Ganoderma is a mushroom said to have over 150 antioxidants and 200 phytonutrients. It is considered to be the number #1 anti-aging herb in the world. Its possible benefits include but are not limited to: anti-cancer effects, liver-protecting effects, anti-bacterial effects, anti-viral effects, anti-fungal effects, reduces blood cholesterol, to name a few.

With nearly 75% of the population consuming coffee on a daily basis, it seems like a no-brainer that more coffee drinkers would benefit from a healthy alternative to regular coffee. Obviously, the coffee business is huge. It is a 100 billion dollar a year business.

Therapeutic Properties Of Ganoderm Coffee

The FDA doesn’t recognize any medicinal effects of Ganoderma lucidum. However, thousands of studies confirm its health benefits. The coffee made with red mushroom extract exhibits similar properties. Rich in vitamin C, calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium, it provides lasting energy and enhances your body’s natural defenses. Due to its high antioxidant levels, it fights aging and oxidative stress.

Some studies indicate that Ganoderma coffee is higher in antioxidants than green tea and cocoa. Red mushroom extract, its primary ingredient, delivers large doses of glutathione, also known as the Master Antioxidant.

This nutrient helps detoxify the liver and kidneys while improving your body’s ability to flush out toxins. People with low glutathione levels are more likely to develop cardiovascular problems, neurodegenerative diseases, chronic fatigue and immune disorders. Furthermore, glutathione promotes longevity and slows aging.

Ganoderma coffee also contains vitamin C, leading to a lower risk of viral infections. It also improves liver and kidney function, relieves asthma symptoms and increases the body’s resilience to stress. Research suggests that it balances blood sugar levels and protects against diabetes.

Potential Side Effects

Despite its health benefits, this beverage is not for everyone. If you’re sensitive to stimulants, Ganoderma coffee may not be the best choice. You may experience jitters, rapid heartbeat and sleep problems. Since this drink stimulates the immune response, it’s not recommended for those with an already overactive immune system.

Most studies indicate that Ganoderma coffee is safe when consumed in moderate doses. Just make sure you’re not allergic to mushrooms. Also, be aware that Ganoderma lucidum and other medicinal mushrooms may interfere with blood clotting.
