Despite its reputation as a villain in the past, coffee is actually beneficial to one’s health. Coffee is high in antioxidants, and many studies have connected regular coffee consumption to a lower risk of major diseases. According to certain research, ‘coffee drinkers’ may live longer.
Many consumers, however, have been wondering if their coffee contains mold. The prospect of sipping a dark beverage and discovering an insect or a speck of dirt in the bottom of their cup is terrifying to most individuals. Is this scenario, however, better or worse than drinking a cup of coffee laced with mold that you can’t see?
We’ve got some terrible news for you: that delicious cup of coffee you had this morning could contain mold spores.
Some claim that most commercial coffees are infected with mycotoxins, which induce toxicity when inhaled or taken in large quantities, raising the risk of sickness. Mycotoxins are produced by microscopic fungi that thrive on coffee plantations or in improperly stored beans.
Increased risk of liver cancer, brain damage, neurological disorders, and olfactory issues are all caused by these fungi. Dopamine depletion, which causes sadness and persistent fatigue, may potentially be connected to mycotoxins.
