Coffee is the most popular beverage in the world but that delicious taste and aroma are like torture for most heartburn sufferers – just one cup is usually all it takes to get the pain started in your chest. But why is that?
Heartburn occurs when stomach acids leak into the esophagus, specifically when the LES opens when it shouldn’t – such as when you have a cup of coffee. But why is that?
The main culprit is the higher levels of caffeine in coffee which cause the stomach to produce excess quantities of acid. The same thing happens when you drink caffeinated sodas and even cocoa (although there are other factors involved there as well). Most stewed and percolated beverages contain caffeine – even tea – but coffee is by far the worst culprit.
The other factor is the natural acidity and high level of other irritants contained in coffee – it really is an assault on the system despite the great flavor!
However, a new technology, called Hevla, may hold the answer for those who suffer from heartburn but miss that great smelling cup o’ joe. Helva Low Acid Coffee has a special all-natural steaming process that removes over 70 of the harmful irritants from coffee beans, without compromising on taste.
The Hevla process involves steaming coffee beans at high pressure. This reduces the acidity to a level low enough to be tolerated by those heartburn sufferers who are hypersensitive to excess acid in the stomach. They also offer a range of decaffeinated options.
Hevla coffee is now available in your supermarket and online in a wide variety of flavors – espresso, bavarian, chocolate almond, hazlenut, irish creme and many others at reasonable prices.
