Expert advice

Which coffee is the healthiest

"Coffee should be consumed according to the rule that everything is good in moderation. And for coffee to be healthy, in addition to moderation in consumption, it is also necessary to choose and prepare it correctly. It is better to buy coffee beans. Ground coffee loses some of its flavor, so the most delicious is the one that is ground just before brewing," Fuss explained.

Which coffee is the most harmful and dangerous

"Avoid solubility resulting from complex industrial processes. The worst is 3-in-1 coffee or instant cappuccino in bags. It contains a lot of sugar, unhealthy fats, and emulsifiers. And the flavor and odor enhancers added to such coffee can negatively affect liver function," the expert said.

How coffee affects the liver

"Natural coffee is not only not harmful to the liver, but in reasonable quantities it is beneficial. This benefit is determined by the presence of bitterness and antioxidants in the beans. However, it should be mentioned that milk and cream added to coffee reduce the activity of coffee antioxidants and make it difficult for the body to absorb them," the expert said.

How not to make coffee

"Avoid the popular type of preparation - pouring boiling water, that is coffee with floating coffee grounds. Such coffee contains a lot of diterpenes – cafestol and caffeoyl. These chemical compounds can increase the level of "bad" cholesterol in the blood and negatively affect liver function. Paper filters help to prevent caffeol and caffeostol, and the filter allows valuable antioxidants contained in coffee beans to pass through the filter into the drink. Do not boil coffee, as it loses not only its taste but also its benefits, it releases more harmful substances, especially from finely ground coffee, and destroys essential oils and useful antioxidants," the nutritionist said.
