Scientists Tell How Instant Coffee Affects Health

Some scientists have also confirmed the benefits of instant coffee. Coffee is a popular drink, especially in the morning, that can improve mood and concentration, and reduce the risk of developing heart and other diseases.

Instant coffee is made from roasted coffee beans, after which they are ground and treated with hot water. This concentrated drink is then dried in various ways.

Thus, instant coffee is not much different from regular coffee, experts say. The main difference is the amount of caffeine – instant coffee contains less of it.

According to the US Department of Agriculture, 100 grams of instant coffee contains 26 mg of caffeine, while the same amount of espresso prepared in a restaurant contains 212 mg of caffeine.

Some scientists have also confirmed the benefits of instant coffee. For example, experts from the US National Cancer Institute and Northwestern University evaluated the impact of coffee on the health of almost half a million people.

They concluded that not only regular coffee, but also decaffeinated coffee, ground coffee, and instant coffee were beneficial, but to a lesser extent, the National Center for Health Research reports.
