Caffeine is found in tea and coffee, but not only! Ice cream, chocolate ... Discover 7 foods that contain even more.
Swallowing a cup of tea or coffee in the morning before going to work is a reflex for many of us. A gesture that allows for a boost of energy, since these hot drinks contain caffeine.
If the little boost that they offer can be useful, there is no question of abusing it as much, because consuming too much caffeine promotes stress is anxiety! Dr. Prudence Knight, a British general practitioner relayed by the Daily Mail, says moreover that the daily threshold not to exceed is 300 mg.
A threshold not always easy to identify because tea and coffee are not the only foods to contain caffeine! To avoid unpleasant surprises, Dr. Prudence Knight has listed caffeine-containing foods. And the result is sometimes surprising:
- Starbuck's Nitro Cold Brew Coffee (590 ml) contains 469mg of caffeine
- Starbuck fresh filter coffee (473 ml), contains 308mg of caffeine
- One can of Red Bull (250 ml) contains 80 mg of caffeine
- A dark chocolate bar (100g) contains 80mg of caffeine
- A coffee-flavored ice cream contains 52 mg of caffeine for two spoons
- One tablet of Anadin Extra, a pain reliever sold in the UK, contains 49mg of caffeine
- One can of Coca Cola light (330ml) contains 42mg of caffeine
Caffeine doses much higher than those found in tea! For comparison, a cup of black tea infused for 5 minutes contains only 31 mg of caffeine, while a cup of green tea also infused for 5 minutes contains 21 mg. What to think about!
