Does decaf coffee reduce the risk of diabetes?
The American Heart Association Journal has published research, which suggests that decaf coffee drinkers lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Does decaf coffee truly have no caffeine?
The truth is, decaf coffee does actually contain caffeine, however, it is much less than a regular cup of coffee. The decaffeinating process of coffee removes up to 97% of caffeine content. This leaves a small percentage of caffeine in decaf beans. According to USDA regulations and guidelines, decaf coffee should not exceed 0.10% of caffeine.
Does decaf coffee taste as good as normal coffee?
There is no reason why decaf coffee should taste anything less delicious than normal caffeine-rich coffee. The decaffeination process does take some of the flavours out, but the processes have evolved so much that you still get an amazing result even after the caffeine has been stripped.
Can decaf coffee raise your blood sugar?
Other studies showed that consuming caffeinated coffee impaired blood sugar regulation and insulin sensitivity after meals. However, this does not happen with decaf coffee, which suggests that caffeine might be what causes the spike in blood sugar. In fact, most of the studies on caffeine and blood sugar look at caffeine directly, not coffee.
