New Blog Post: All About Caffeine
Caffeine is world’s most widely consumed stimulant and has been consumed for thousands of years. Caffeine is found naturally in many plant-based foods and the main sources in the Western diet are coffee, tea, cocoa (chocolate) products and cola products. Canadians get about 60% of caffeine from coffee and 30% from tea. Tea contains 66% less caffeine compared to an equal-sized serving of coffee, but enough to provide the cognitive benefits. This means that most people can consume about 8 cups of tea a day compared to only 2 cups of coffee a day and stay below the moderate caffeine intake of 400mg/day.
