COFFEE AND WELLBEING: Coffee is rich in antioxidants

Have you ever wondered what happens to a coffee bean when roasted? When fine roasted, coffee beans release wonderful aromas and flavours! What we do is, given that we know how coffee lovers love that special taste, is that we capture this natural goodness so you can enjoy the rich aroma and delicious taste of Nescafé - anywhere, any time.

At Nestle, we make sure that we only use carefully selected Arabica and Robusta coffee beans to deliver a flavourful cup every time you make your coffee. Why? Because we know that every cup of coffee should be special! 

The intriguing complexity and rituals of coffee means it can also deliver wonderful emotional benefits such as stimulation or relaxation. A cup of coffee can be a perfect companion for cherished moments of solitude and reflection, or convivial times with friends and colleagues.

Coffee’s antioxidant benefit

You may know that eating foods with antioxidants is a great way to protect yourself from damaging free radicals and help support your body’s defences.

But did you know that coffee is also rich in antioxidants? They naturally occur in green coffee beans. And, as a cup of decaffeinated coffee contains as many antioxidants as regular coffee, those that choose a caffeine-free product can enjoy the same benefits.

So it is important to know that coffee's positive health effects may be due to its impressive content of powerful antioxidants, including hydrocinnamic acids and polyphenols. Coffee has also been linked to a reduced risk type 2 diabetes, liver diseases and Alzheimer's. 

A study showed that berries contain a large number of antioxidants per serving, however, given that people drink a lot more coffee than eat berries, the total antioxidants provided by coffee far outweighs that of berries!
