New research suggests that drinking four cups of coffee each day can be part of a healthy diet in healthy people.
Over the years there have been many studies and reports that drinking coffee can be beneficial.
The American Heart Association once reported that, people who regularly drank moderate amounts of coffee daily –less than 5 cups per day — experienced a lower risk of deaths from cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, Type 2 diabetes and suicide. The benefit held true for drinking caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee, suggesting it’s not just the caffeine providing health perks but possibly the naturally occurring chemical compounds in the coffee beans.
We know coffee can be beneficial for us to drink daily. But what most of us do is add cream, sugar, sweeteners, and more which can offset the benefits of the coffee.
Who likes to drink their coffee black? Many less people than those who prefer to have a latte, mocha or some other sugary drink. Part of the reason people add so many different additives to their coffee is because they do not like the taste of plain black coffee.
Infrared Roasting vs Conventional Roasting
Standard Commercial roasting puts the beans on a flat screen conveyor which roasts the beans by blowing flame heated hot air from below. Another method is to place the beans in a tumbler and then blow the flame heated, hot air through as they tumble. Both methods, however, will allow the flame to possibly burn the beans and/or to not cook them evenly and all the way through.
Infrared roasting brings out the desired flavor and aroma in the coffee bean. Infrared roasting technology leads to lower acidity levels, an evenly roasted bean, and completely eliminates a burnt or bitter coffee taste.
Infrared roasting is a better method to roast coffee, but only about 2% of coffee is infrared roasted. In addition to providing a better tasting coffee, infrared roasting also reduces the acidity in coffee allowing people with more sensitive stomachs to enjoy a cup of coffee.
During the coffee-roasting process, natural coffee acids form which can lead to heartburn, indigestion and upset stomach. Reducing these irritants through infrared roasting can allow coffee drinkers with sensitive stomachs to enjoy coffee.
The important thing is, coffee can be beneficial to your health and should be part of your Xtreme Healthy Living Lifestyle. For a better tasting coffee, try and find somewhere that uses beans that have been infrared roasted.
