    It convinces me again that you dont want to know what any food you eat is made up of. At least it finishes on a high note:

    Trigonelline
    Chemically, its a molecule of niacin with a methyl group attached. It breaks down into pyridines, which give coffee its sweet, earthy taste and also prevent the tooth-eating bacterium Streptococcus mutans from attaching to your teeth. Coffee fights the Cavity Creeps.

    Niacin
    Trigonelline is unstable above 160 degrees F; the methyl group detaches, unleashing the niacin—vitamin B3—into your cup. Two or three espressos can provide half your recommended daily allowance.

    A cuppa a day keeps the dentist away so gargle with espresso before bedtime...hmmm. Vitamin B3 is also very important. But your chances of stepping on a cocky are quite low as youve already warned them well in advance.
