Interesting piece of news for you this morning. Did you know that a grande coffee from Starbucks contains almost 330 milligrams of caffeine? That’s just 70 milligrams shy of the recommended maximum daily caffeine intake of 400 milligrams.
Bertil B. Fredholm, professor of pharmacology at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden says “Whereas low dose caffeine effects are wakefulness, a little bit of arousal, and slight euphoria. High dose effects are anxiety, irritation, and general mental discomfort—a completely different kettle of fish.”
Past studies have provided findings that when Starbucks is compared to another coffee giant, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks has about 100 milligrams more on average than DD’s coffee. CEN has a chart to help put this a little more into perspective.
