Caffeine-free, Naturally Decaf, Decaf…what’s the difference in teas and coffee

Caffeine-free: Some teas grows naturally w/o caffeine.

Naturally decaffeinated: Water was used to extract caffeine, however there’s still a small percentage left in tea and or coffee.

Decaffeinated: If label doesn’t say naturally decaffeinated, a chemical was used to extract caffeine. Again, there’s still a small percentage of caffeine left in the tea and or coffee.

Soft-drinks: Some soft-drinks contain added caffeine (E.g., Mountain Dew, Sunkist Orange Slice, Dr. Peppers…) Read the labels. Better yet, buy sodas free of GMOs or make your own. You can use sparkling mineral water or use the recipe below thanks to http://alifeunprocessed.blogspot.com/2012/02/lacto-fermented-ginger-ale.html
