Nature.com Draws on Health Benefits of Cold Brew Coffee for In-Depth Article

The debate over what is healthier, and tastes better between Cold Bew & Drip Coffee has waged on, with many people being quite passionate about their position on the subject, despite a lack of conclusive data. A recent article in Nature.com published enlightening scientific data.

Evanston, United States - December 12, 2018 /PressCable/ —

If not for a strong cup of coffee or two, many would find it quite difficult to make to work on time or finish-up an important project in university or to earn a paycheck. This has led to seemingly bitter debates on Cold Brew vs. Drip Coffee taking place with both sides having little in the way of facts to back their claims up, but very strong opinions. Coffee blog Coffee-Brewing-Methods.com has changed this with their fact-filled article “5 Health Benefits of Cold Brew Coffee – Why is Cold Brew Better Than Drip Coffee” by Dorian Bodnariuc recently used as a source for two scientists from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.

Ninny Rao and Megan Fuller investigated how cold brew is different than hot brew coffee. The above-mentioned article and other coffee blogs were what started the research. Rao and Fuller were intrigued by the numerous claims that cold brew coffee is healthier than regular coffee, lacking scientific references. As coffee drinkers, the two scientists felt compelled to study the chemical differences between the two brewing methods. Their findings were published in the prestigious Scientific Reports, a journal of Nature.com.

“The work of the two scientists is very important,” commented Bodnariuc on the Nature.com piece. “This confirms the previous research, but it also brings up new information about hot brew. Even though cold brew retains more of the famous chlorogenic acid compared to hot brew, the antioxidant properties of hot brew is higher.”

According to the author, the other aspect researched was the acidity of the two brewing methods. While the ph was virtually identical, hot brew contained more acid compounds that ultimately influence the flavor. This led Bodnariuc to remark, “acidity is only important from a flavor perspective. Acidity in coffee is not responsible for gastrointestinal distress after drinking it.”

The author’s blog Coffee-Brewing-Methods.com has no shortage of coffee-related pieces of all kinds, with the general quality quite high, along with a growing number of product reviews in the board space.

Nature.com’s approach to science-based articles tends to get to the heart of a subject with an editorial vision of keeping biases as low as possible. By all accounts, “Acidity and Antioxidant Activity of Cold Brew Coffee” has managed to accomplish this.

Where have the wild birds gone? 3 billion fewer than 1970

Sep 22, 2019

WASHINGTON — A comprehensive study shows there are nearly 3 billion fewer wild birds in North America than in 1970. The new study finds that the bird population in the United States and Canada was probably around 10.1 billion nearly half a century ago and has dropped 29% to about 7.2 billion birds. Study lead author Kenneth Rosenberg, a Cornell University conservation scientist, says the thinning of the flocks is happening before our eyes but is so slow we don't often notice. Rosenberg and colleagues projected population data using weather radar, which captures flocks of migrating birds, 13 different bird...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Sep 22, 2019

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Sep 22, 2019

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...

Pesticide criticized in bee deaths could also kill birds

Sep 22, 2019

PORTLAND, Maine — Scientists studying a widely used pesticide say even small doses of the chemical can have crippling health effects on migrating birds, and it might be contributing to declines in their overall populations. The researchers with the University of Saskatchewan will publish their research about the insect-killer imidacloprid in the journal Science on Friday. The insecticide is among a class called neonicotinoids that has been widely studied for its health impacts on bees. The scientists studied white-crowned sparrows that consumed small doses of the pesticide and found that the birds experienced weight loss and delays in migration. They...

Apple takes on Netflix with a $5-a-month streaming service

Sep 22, 2019

CUPERTINO, Calif. — Apple is finally taking on Netflix with its own streaming television service and, uncharacteristically for the company, offering it at a bargain price — $5 a month beginning on Nov. 1. Walt Disney Co. is launching its own assault on Netflix the same month, for just $7. It may be sheer coincidence that the cost of paying for both Apple and Disney subscriptions will still be a dollar less than Netflix's main plan, priced at $13 a month. But the intent to disrupt Netflix's huge lead in the streaming business couldn't be clearer. Apple delivered the news...
