5 Coffee Statistics No One Is Talking About

5 Coffee Statistics No One Is Talking About

If you can’t tell the difference between Conventional Coffee and Organic Coffee, you’re not alone. Most people have no idea what is in the coffee they drink… and unfortunately, many coffee manufacturers prefer to keep you in the dark. Here are 5 coffee statistics you need to be aware of. 
 
Fact #1: Did you know that coffee is one of the most chemically treated crops in the world?

According to recent statistics, up to 250 pounds of chemical fertilizers are sprayed per acre of Conventional Coffee. 

Some companies claim that the pesticides are “burned off” during roasting… but many others believe that the chemicals aren’t “cooked off” while roasting coffee beans, but rather “cooked into” the beans.

Would you eat a conventionally grown, genetically modified potato that was treated with dozens of dangerous chemicals just because someone told you they would magically disappear once you heated it up? Neither would we.

Fact #2: Many Organic Coffee brands aren’t much better than Conventional Coffee Brands.

Most people who buy organic coffee, choose to do so because they don’t want to ingest a product that has been sprayed with harmful pesticides and chemicals…
 
What they don’t know is that since organic coffee uses no chemical sprays, it has no defense against mycotoxins like T-2 toxins, ochratoxins, vomitoxins, and rubratoxins. 

 

And so THIS is the Catch-22 most people have no idea exists:

 1. Either you drink Conventional Coffee, which is mycotoxin-free but treated with chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and/or fungacides.

 – – – OR – – – 

 2. You drink Organic Coffee which is chemical-free, but prone to mycotoxins and fungal by-products growing freely on the beans.

 

Fact #3: Many of the negative side-effects of coffee which are generally attributed to caffeine are actually the result of the ochratoxins in the coffee.

When manufacturers start to mass produce consumable products, they pay very close attention to the bottom line and do everything in their power to cut costs. Coffee, being the second most commonly traded commodity in the world (after petroleum), fits squarely in this category.

 

Cutting costs in the coffee industry looks like anything from using unfair labor and poor farming practices to inferior drying, re-wetting, large batch roasting, and bad storage practices in the post-production handling of coffee. This commonly leads to mold growth and usually results in contamination with ochratoxin-A in the final product.

 
Many of the negative side-effects of coffee which are generally attributed to caffeine are actually the result of the ochratoxins in the coffee: things like racing heartbeat and jitteriness, and they also make the flavor more bitter.

The presence of ochratoxins in coffee can be significantly impacted by the procedures which are utilized during processing. While molds can be killed off during the roasting process, ochratoxins usually survive. In fact, ochratoxins have been known to survive autoclaving for 3 hours.  (IARC 1976).

 

Fact #4: You shouldn’t drink coffee because it’s so acidic.

Well, this one is sort of true because most commercial coffee brands on the market today are in the acidic range of 4.0-6.0. That’s definitely not good to drink. Why? Because the human body is a naturally alkaline environment.

When you consume an overly acidic diet, you throw off your body’s healthy pH balance and make your body susceptible to illness.* Our body’s internal system needs a pH just above 7.0 for the enzymatic, immunological, and repair mechanisms to function at their best.*

Longevity Coffee™ beans, however, boast a pH value of 7.2, which is exactly where your body needs to be to function at its best!*

Fact #5: Drinking coffee free from chemicals AND mycotoxins will make you feel amazing!*

How did Longevity Coffee® accomplish all of this?

 

shutterstock_309396245By adding one simple and natural ingredient to the coffee beans.

One magical ingredient that not only makes the coffee chemical-free… but also mycotoxin-free and fungal by-product-free

And what is this magical ingredient?

 

Sunlight.

 

But not ordinary sunlight. Like solar panels that harvest energy from the sun’s rays, Longevity Coffee® beans are bathed in a unique spectrum of light that not only makes the need for chemical additives unnecessary, but also kills off any dangerous mycotoxins, creating one of the most unique coffee products ever produced.
 
In addition, Food for the Immortals® controls every step of the coffee making, manufacturing, and distribution process. From the growth of the bean to its cultivation, from the roasting to the packing – Longevity Coffee® is only handled by experts within their company that adhere to the high standard of excellence they demand with their products.

Most coffee companies do not have this “start-to-finish” type of control, since they process their coffee through 3rd party facilities, which can sometimes unwittingly expose the coffee to unwanted environmental contaminants.

 Give Longevity Coffee® a try today and feel the difference!
