Is decaffeinated coffee really caffeine free?
I love coffee but can't take caffeine, I have been told that there can be as much as 60% caffeine in some decaffeinated coffees, and my reactions to that can attest to it being true.
I have been told that there is such as thing as 100% caffeine free coffee.
Is there such a thing, and can you tell me where to get it?
It's true that the decaffeination process doesn't remove all the caffeine.
However, whichever method is used, it does remove almost all the caffeine.
The international standard, which most countries abide by, require that 99% of the caffeine be removed before the coffee can be sold as decaffeinated. In the US, some companies will go by a different standard, which requires 97% decaffeinated.
Either way, almost all the caffeine is removed and unless you drink a huge amount of coffee by volume, you shouldn't be feeling any of the effects of the tiny amount of caffeine remaining.
