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.

Researchers come face to face with huge great white shark

Jan 20, 2019

HALEIWA, Hawaii — Two shark researchers who came face to face with what could be one of the largest great whites ever recorded are using their encounter as an opportunity to push for legislation that would protect sharks in Hawaii. Ocean Ramsey, a shark researcher and conservationist, told The Associated Press that she encountered the 20-foot (6-meter) shark Tuesday near a dead sperm whale off Oahu. The event was documented and shared on social media by her fiancé and business partner Juan Oliphant. The Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources said it was aware of photos of the great...

Hyundai, Kia recall vehicles due to increased fire risk

Jan 20, 2019

DETROIT — Despite a government shutdown, Hyundai and Kia are moving ahead with a recall of about 168,000 vehicles to fix a fuel pipe problem that can cause engine fires. The problem stems from improper repairs during previous recalls for engine failures. The affiliated Korean automakers have been dogged by fire and engine failure complaints from across the nation. They're both under investigation by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which has been trying to figure out whether initial recalls covered enough vehicles. But the agency is mostly closed due to the shutdown. In addition to the recall, each...

Sinclair debuts streaming service for its local TV stations

Jan 20, 2019

NEW YORK — Sinclair Broadcast wants to "Stirr" up streaming. The nation's largest owner of television stations launched a free, ad-supported streaming service Wednesday drawing on local news, sports and other programs from the 191 TV stations it owns in 89 U.S. markets. Sinclair said the motivation behind Stirr is in part to help viewers "access the local news and lifestyle programming that is relevant to their everyday life." Sinclair was admonished by media watchdogs in April after the sports news service Deadspin pieced together clips of dozens of TV anchors for Sinclair reading from the same script. The script...

Robot recreates the walk of a 290-million-year-old creature

Jan 20, 2019

WASHINGTON — How did the earliest land animals move? Scientists have used a nearly 300-million-year old fossil skeleton and preserved ancient footprints to create a moving robot model of prehistoric life. Evolutionary biologist John Nyakatura at Humboldt University in Berlin has spent years studying a 290-million-year-old fossil dug up in central Germany's Bromacker quarry in 2000. The four-legged plant-eater lived before the dinosaurs and fascinates scientists "because of its position on the tree of life," said Nyakatura. Researchers believe the creature is a "stem amniote" — an early land-dwelling animal that later evolved into modern mammals, birds and reptiles. Scientists...

No-shows for auto shows? Detroit and others aim to retool

Jan 20, 2019

DETROIT — At first glance, this year's edition of the North American International Auto Show might look like any other from the past: gleaming vehicles, bright lights and flashy displays trying to lure spectators to their offerings. But after traversing Cobo Center's massive exhibition space and ticking off the automakers, you'll notice what's not there: namely BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Audi or Mazda. Those brands had been mainstays of the Motor City's celebration of the auto industry, which opens to the public on Saturday. But they are pulling out not just from Detroit but shows worldwide because of a bad date...
