    Is coffee from ground roasted beans healthier than instant coffee?

    My understanding is that instant coffee has added chemicals in it while drinking coffee from ground roasted beans doesnt have those added chemicals.

    Is that true? Is instant coffee unhealthy in some way and is it healthier to drink coffee made from ground roasted coffee beans.

    Thanks.

    More than likely not a widely pondered question in this forum mate.

    If your understanding is correct, that instant coffee has chemicals added, and I can guarantee that mine and everyone elses here roasted coffee doesnt, then yeah, its probably healthier for you.

    So healthier for you and tastes like coffee......who would have thunk it?

    I dont think it has chemicals. Mostly is will be from very low grade beans, which are cleaned, roasted, ground, made into a soup and then they spray it at pressure to to freeze-dry it.

    There are a few slightly different ways of ending up with instant granuals or powder but I expect they are all 100% coffee.

    Not good coffee but it will be coffee.

    I saw a show earlier this year that tried to recreate processed foods with home made equipment. They touched on instant coffee and like Andy mentioned, they pretty much made a big batch of coffee, the sprayed in into a stainless steel barrel with pretty much a furnace to instantly evaporating the water thus leaving just dehydrated powder. So basically you will be drinking second hand coffee.

    No chemicals required, just coffee dehydrated.

    Yes, Yes, Yes coffee made from freshly roasted, and freshly ground beans, is much healthier for you than any kind of instant, cos its fresh not stale.
