Is Your Decaf Really Decaf?

Use New 'D+CAF(TM) Caffeine Test Strips' to Know for Sure Studies show that up to 30% of coffees ordered as 'decaf' contain high

levels of caffeine

MONROVIA, Calif., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever wonder whether the coffee you had after dinner was really decaf? Now you can know for sure with new D+CAF, the first ever do-it-yourself caffeine test strip from Silver Lake Research, the leader in at-home water quality testing.


"Caffeine-sensitive people need to beware of coffee labeled 'decaf'," says Tom Round, Vice President, Silver Lake Research. He noted that Silver Lake Research analyzed 100 decaf coffee samples ordered between 3-9 p.m. at specialty coffee houses and popular restaurants. "We found that 25 percent of the decaf coffee ordered had high caffeine levels. Previous studies by others have produced similar or even more alarming results."

Designed for use in coffee or tea, D+CAF is easy to use, provides quick results, and has the same accuracy rate as professional laboratories (98+%). Users simply contact the test strip to a sample of the beverage and view the results.

If the beverage is decaf, the "D" line on the test strip will be darker than the "C" line. If the beverage is not decaf, the "C" line will be darker. For this test, a beverage is considered decaffeinated when the caffeine level is below 20 mg caffeine per 6 ounce serving.

In addition to sleeplessness, caffeine sensitive people can experience a wide range of reactions, such as restlessness, irritability, anxiety, muscle tremors, headaches, gastrointestinal problems, nausea and abnormal heart rhythms. For pregnant women, type-2 diabetics, and seniors, the consequences of consuming caffeine can be serious.

D+CAF, which was just recognized as a most innovative product finalist at Natural Products Expo East, is available in bright orange, pocket-size, flip top containers. Each one holds 20 test strips and has an affordable suggested retail price of $9.95 each. Look for D+CAF at leading natural food grocers and specialty shops and on-line at or call Toll Free 1-888-438-1942.
