"Hidden" sources of caffeine if you are an idiot that is:

1. Supplements:  "A study published earlier this year analyzed 20 dietary supplements - including multivitamins and performance-enhancing supplements - and found that six of the supplements' labels failed to list the amount of caffeine contained in the product. "  - So they just don't tell you how much, but caffeine is ON THE LABEL

2.  Medication:  "Some medications contain caffeine. Two tablets of Excedrin Extra Strength pain medication contain a total of 130 mg of caffeine" - Again, ON THE LABEL.  And thanks, I take Excedrin FOR the caffeine, as it helps kill a migraine right quick

3. Decaf coffee:  "A 2006 study found that decaf coffee purchased at coffee shops and restaurants contained up to 14 mg of caffeine per 16-ounce serving." - So, about 1/10th the amount of a cup of coffee?

4. Chocolate:  "Eat a whole cup of semisweet chocolate chips, and you'll get a caffeine dose equivalent to that of a cup of coffee (104 mg) " - Who the FARK eats a whole cup of chocolate chips in one sitting?  Someone with bigger worries than caffeine, that's who

5.  Tea:  No shiat, sherlock.

One of our coffee pots at work has the orange lip that traditionally denotes decaf.  None of us who work there and virtually none of the customers drink decaf though, so we use it to denote the pots made with three bags of coffee instead of the normal one and a half.  It works well except when someone thinks it's actually full of decaf.

FTFA: Tea: Some people who get jittery after drinking coffee switch over to tea. Although tea contains less caffeine than coffee, it can still be a significant source of the ingredient. Regular black tea contains between 14 mg and 60 mg of caffeine, the Mayo Clinic says, and green tea contains between 24 mg and 40 mg.

Since when has tea ever been a "hidden" source of caffeine?

It sounds like this MyHealthNewsDaily Staff Writer, Rachael Rettner, is just making sh*it up to meet her article deadlines.

I wish manufacturers would list the amount of caffiene in stuff.  That way I could regularize my intake.

Are you suggesting manufacturers should be required to, for example, list the ingredients and nutritional content of their product on the label?

/what are you? some kind of commie liberal heartbleeder?
//and do you think anyone would actually read that sh*t?

It's addictive, that's why they put it in there. It's well past time that the FDA acted on the inclusion of caffeine in beverages/supplements.

Decaf crystals have caffeine?!?!

Why you son of a b*itch !

I guess that is why it is called decaf and not nocaf or caffeine free.

Did Romero discover a starbucks 'funfact' sheet, or something...?

We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the stimulant-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of not sleeping and seeing through time exists and will persist.

Yo dawg, I heard you like caffeine....
 
2013-05-01 07:23:28 AM
I may be the only one who was surprised, but only because I read that as "full of cat."

Decaf coffee is coffee that has been through a decaffeination process.  It still has some caffeine in it, just a heavily reduced amount compared to normal coffee.

I was under the impression that tea has more caffeine in it than coffee but it also contains another chemical that reduces absorption when drunk (tannine?).

So where's the surprise?

Eat a whole cup of semisweet chocolate chipsand you're a farking hippopotamus.

I suspect that the coffee they serve at Sonic is all decaf, since I consistently fell back asleep after drinking it.

Your coffee isn't full of cat, but your civet might be full of coffee.

Five hidden sources of caffeine:

Supplements
Medications
Decaf coffee
Chocolate
Tea

Which totally explains THIS picture accompanying TFA:

i.livescience.com

I'm pretty sure that those are not coffee, chocolate, or tea, so I'm just wondering if they're supposed to be supplements or medications.

Looks like a pack of chewing gum to be honest, perhaps its supposed to be a stand-in for something like Anadin Extra (or "Extra power fast pain relief" generics) which is Caffeine, Aspirin and Paracetamol mixed together?

/Tylenol perhaps in America?  Don't know your brands vs ours.

"Eat a whole cup of semisweet chocolate chips ..."

Seriously? Just the idea gives me a sugar-rush.

Probably not a farking hippo, just a lonely one.

I know this is Fark, but try to read at least the first 3 paragraphs of TFA:

The statement came on the heels of Wrigley's launch of a new caffeinated gum. The product, called Alert Energy Caffeine Gum, is marketed to adults and contains 40 milligrams of caffeine, the company says.

Sheesh.

It's interesting how prevalent the use of this stimulant is in our society. I think caffeine has shaped our society even more than alcohol has at this point.
