Is it really decaf?

Stop trusting, but you’re getting some caffeine when you order decaffeinated coffee. There are no laws about caffeine level in brewed decaf. A couple of regular coffee is typically considered to have about 100 milligrams, according to a recent study made by Consumer Reports they bought a total of 36 cups of decaf from six locations of Burger King, Mc Donald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Seven Eleven and Starbucks. And they analyzed the coffee contents, more than half of the decafs had less than 5 mgs of caffeine but some had quite a bit more.

They goes from 5mg to 32mg and some of the samples showed caffeine per cup range from 58 mg to 281 mg, providing more of the caffeine than you might expect.

If you are a coffee lover, limit yourself to one cup of decaf a day, especially before bedtime.
