Coffee Beans contains toxins?
There have been studies conducted on the presence of mold in coffee beans.
Some of these studies have found that a significant percentage of coffee beans may contain mold.
One study published in the Journal of Food Science in 2012 found that 45% of coffee beans tested contained mold, specifically mycotoxins.
Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by certain types of mold that can cause a variety of health problems when consumed in large quantities.
It's important to note that not all molds produce mycotoxins, & the presence of mold in coffee beans does not necessarily mean that they are unsafe to consume.
The level of mycotoxins in coffee beans can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the type of mold present, the growing & processing conditions of the coffee, & the storage conditions of the beans.
To minimize the risk of consuming mycotoxins, it is recommended to purchase high-quality coffee beans from reputable sources, & to store them in a cool, dry place.
Additionally, brewing coffee at high temperatures (above 195°F/90°C) has been shown to reduce the level of mycotoxins present in the final beverage.
