A 100% natural healthy alternative to coffee, Caf-Lib is recommended for anyone who wants to reduce or eliminate their caffeine intake: pregnant or menopausal women; people suffering from a heart condition, upset stomach or sleeplessness; athletes and others looking for natural alternatives; children and teens for whom coffee is not suitable, etc.
Why a coffee alternative?
Caffeine has always been present in coffee, tea, cola, and chocolate. Today it is added in the preparation of several foods, beverages, medicines and even some cosmetics. Anyone who wishes to reduce their caffeine intake, can use Caf-Lib as a coffee substitute.
Which ingredients are used to make of Caf-Lib?
Caf-Lib is composed of purely plant-based ingredients, including chicory. There are absolutely no chemicals or preservatives used in the production of Caf-Lib. Caf-Lib is not decaffeinated: it is made from ingredients that never had caffeine to begin with.
Caf-Lib contains a small amount (about 1.6%) of organic acids coming from the grain used in the ingredients. It is worth noting that Caf-Lib does not contain chlorogenic acid found in dark roasted coffee and coffee extract.
Thanks to superior manufacturing and packaging practices which ensure its microbiological integrity, Caf-Lib requires no preservatives to maintain its freshness.
Finally, the only sugar present is produced in minimal quantity by the grain itself during the malting process.
Are there any side effects associated with Caf-Lib?
No. Caf-Lib is not known to cause any side effects. It is a 100% natural coffee substitute recommended for people suffering from upset stomach and heartburn, rapid or irregular heartbeat (tachycardia), ulcers, insomnia, etc.
How does the taste of Caf-Lib compare to actual coffee?
The taste of Caf-Lib Original is similar to instant coffee. Our Dark Roast offers a more robust flavour to please people who prefer a stronger brew. As for our Organic blend, its taste resembles our Original blend.
How is Caf-Lib made?
