If you think drinking decaf coffee shields you from the effects of caffeine, you’re wrong.
Although it is often assumed that decaf coffee is 100% caffeine free, USDA regulations report that decaffeinated coffee only needs to be 97% caffeine free.
Although 3% is a relatively small amount of caffeine, it’s still enough to affect people who are sensitive to caffeine.
So how much of an effect can that 3% really have? We spoke to coffee expert Paul Toscano, chief marketing officer of Joyride Coffee , and Shay Zohar, Director of Sales and Marketing at Barrie House, to get all our decaf coffee questions answered.
