Why is Hot Coffee Healthier than Cold?
For fans of coffee, changing seasons often also bring changes in habits in the morning. If now in the rainy season, it seems that hot coffee is more appropriate. Not only makes work more enthusiastic, drinking coffee served warmer is more healthy than cold.
A new study shows hot coffee has health benefits that are superior to cold coffee. This was revealed in a study published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Researcher Thomas Jefferson from the University of Philadelphia, United States compared the acidity and antioxidant activity of hot and cold drinks. As a result, higher levels of antioxidant activity are found in higher temperature coffee.
Antioxidants are molecules that have many health benefits. Starting from reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and premature death. "Research shows moderate coffee can be very good for you," said co-author Megan Fuller, PhD.
"We found hot coffee, has more antioxidant capacity," he continued again as reported by Health on Friday (11/09/2018).
Then, is there a difference in the acidity level of hot and cold coffee? Indicators of acidity of both hot and cold coffees are similar, ranging from 4.85 to 5.13 for all coffee samples tested.
However, for those of you cold coffee lovers, don't need to be discouraged. The pleasure of cold coffee makes some people not add anything to it.
"Many people think cold coffee is better, which means you will be less tempted to fill it with fat or calories in the form of cream, milk, and sugar," said Frank Hu, MD, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition Leadership Council at TH Harvard Chan School of Public Health.
