Where can I get decaffeinated chocolate

How much caffeine can decaf coffee contain?

According to the regulation on coffee, coffee and chicory extracts within the EU, decaffeinated coffee may contain a maximum of 0.1 percent caffeine. As with "non-alcoholic" beer, decaffeinated coffee can also contain a small amount of caffeine.

Here is a small overview of the caffeine content of various foods and drinks:

Drink / foodaverage caffeine content (mg)
1 cup of decaffeinated coffee (150 ml)3
1 cup of coffee (150 ml)50-100
1 cup of espresso (50 ml)15-90
1 cup of black tea (150 ml)20-60
1 cup of cocoa (150 ml)2-8
Milk chocolate (100 g)approx. 20
Semi-dark chocolate (100 g)approx. 75
Cola (330 ml)32-60
Energy drinks (250 ml)about 80

There are, of course, many reasons for a palpitations. We cannot judge whether the amount of caffeine in decaffeinated coffee is the cause for you.

What is certain is that the tolerance of caffeine differs from person to person. If you are very sensitive to caffeine, you should also notice reactions after consuming other caffeine-containing foods (see table).
