    The Benefits of Low-Acid Coffee

    The Benefits of Low-Acid Coffee

    by Alex Brecher April 19, 2023

    Are you going to make the switch to low-acid coffee? Let’s take a look at the potential benefits. Once you learn about them, you may be ready to give it a try. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is a pure and high-quality choice that can give you a coffee-drinking experience that is gentle on the stomach every time.

    Benefits of Coffee

    Coffee is a nutrient-rich beverage. It is packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants, and research studies suggest that the nutritional profile of coffee translates into real health benefits. Compared to non-coffee drinkers, regular drinkers may have improved heart health, lower risk for diabetes and certain cancers, and short and long-term improvements in brain function and cognition.

    Benefits of Low-Acid Coffee

    Low-acid coffee has the same benefits as regular coffee due to the nutritional profile, but may also have other benefits. These are some examples.

  • Suitable for a low-acid diet. Many patients with heartburn or acid reflux believe that coffee is a trigger for symptoms due to its acid content. A low-acid coffee may be more suitable for this type of diet.
  • Gentler on the stomach. Acidic foods and beverages can trigger symptoms if you have conditions such as a stomach ulcer or irritable bowel disease. Having less acid, such as in a lower-acid coffee, can limit this effect.
  • Tastes better. Acid has a sour or bitter taste, like that of vinegar. Low-acid coffee does not have so much of this taste. You may enjoy the smoother taste more. You may also be able to use less sugar or sweetener in your coffee, and that’s another advantage. 

  • How to Make Low-Acid Coffee

    Now that you know some benefits of low-acid coffee, let’s talk about what it is. Is low-acid coffee even coffee? Or is it some kind of poor substitute for real coffee that will make you miss your usual cup of joe?

    Here’s good news: low-acid coffee is absolutely real coffee. It can even be made out of the exact same coffee beans as higher-acid coffee. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, for example, contains blends of coffee beans from places such as Mexico, Honduras, and Sumatras, which are prime coffee-growing regions in the world.

    Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is lower in acid due to the careful way the coffee beans are processed. They are roasted using air convection instead of steel drums, which means the coffee beans never touch hot metal. Hot metal can increase the acid content. 

    Another reason why Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is lower in acid is because of the way the beans are perfectly roasted. The Regular, Decaf, and Half-Caff varieties have a medium dark French Roast, and the Rise and Shine versions have a slightly lighter Italian roast. 

    When you are ready to try low-acid coffee, consider Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee. It is free from hundreds of synthetic chemicals, pesticides, and herbicides, and it is free from mold, mycotoxins, and heavy metals. It is guaranteed to be fresh, and each variety is available in Fresh Ground, K Cup, and Whole Bean versions.
