By no means are we saying that all decaffeinated products are toxic, however, it’s very dependent on the process utilised for decaffeinating.
There are four types of decaffeination process:
- Indirect-Solvent Process (Methyl Chloride – colorless, flammable, toxic gas)
- Direct-solvent Process (Ethyl Acetate – effective asphyxiant for use in insect collecting)
- Swiss Water Process
- Carbon Dioxide Process
We recommend using products decaffeinated with the Swiss Water Process.
So, you can still enjoy your favorite Organic Decaffeinated drinks, as long as you’ve done your due diligence on production.
