Fluoride In Coffee: Ranking & Guide (238+ Coffees Tested)

It seems like fluoride has found its way into many things, but is there fluoride in coffee?

The beverage that millions around the world rely on everyday to get their day started.

Unfortunately, the bad news is that there is very little research in regards to fluoride in coffee.

However, there is good news

Truth About Fluoride has new information after testing over 238+ samples of coffee for fluoride.

What We Already Know About Fluoride In Coffee

4 cups of coffee held in hand

When it comes to coffee, it’s a bit more unique than other sources of fluoride.

For instance, fluoride content in coffee is not “high”, especially compared to fluoride in tea or even fluoride in kombucha.

However, studies have shown that plasma fluoride concentrations are higher by up to 100% when fluoride is ingested alongside caffeine (like when drinking coffee) compared to ingestion alongside water.1,2

Suggesting an increased initial absorption rate of fluoride within the body.

In other words, lower levels of fluoride may have a stronger effect.

Which is bad news if you’d like to avoid fluoride’s health effects:

On the bright side, it’s not all bad news…

In just minutes, you’ll know exactly what you need to know to avoid fluoride in coffee.

How Much Fluoride Is In Coffee?

Considering there is very little and consistent research on fluoride in coffee, this leaves us with only one option to answer this all-important question…

To buy a bunch of different coffees and test them for fluoride.

And that’s exactly what was done, as I’ve been able to test 238+ types of coffee.

To be exact, 87 whole beans, 14 Nespressos, 118 pods, 16 instant packs, and 2 cold brews.

All of which have been organized into a table you can search and filter, to hopefully find the coffee you currently drink.

5 Tips On Using The Table

To better help you use the table, here are a few tips.

1) Use The Search Bar…

You can search the exact brand or flavor of coffee by entering it’s name into the search bar.

2) Sort Fluoride Content In Coffee From High or Low…

By clicking on “Fluoride” once, you’ll sort the fluoride content in coffee from low to high.

While if you click on it two times, the fluoride content will show from high to low.

3) Narrow Your Search By Using The Filters…

By clicking on “type” you’ll be able to sort through a variety of coffees (cold brew, instant, Nespresso, pods, and whole beans).

While if you click on “roast” you’ll be able to look through light, medium, and dark roasts.

4) Sort Through Coffee That Is Approved…

By clicking on “Approved?” and then selecting “YES”, you’ll be able to see which coffees are approved by Truth About Fluoride.

Being approved means the coffee is safe in regards to fluoride and does not contain any other dangerous ingredients (more on this later).

In addition, only approved coffees will have their name in blue text, which when clicked on, will bring you to the exact coffee I tested, on the Amazon website.

5) Combine ALL Tips To Find Your New Favorite Coffee…

After going through this entire article, for the sake of your health – you’ll probably want to experiment trying a new coffee.

So let’s say you want to find toxic-free, dark-roast whole beans.

To do this, first click on roast and select “Dark“, then select type and click on “Whole Beans“, and lastly, click on approved and select “YES“.

Before we get to the results, I must say, when you take a look at the table…

You’ll notice there is very little to no fluoride in coffee.

However, that’s not all you should know and I highly recommend you read the next section after the table to explain everything.

For example, there could be “hidden” fluoride that is undetectable to testing along with other sneaky ways fluoride can enter your cup of coffee.

6 Important Things You Should Know About Coffee

women drinking coffee while on computer

Taking a look at the test results of over 238 coffee samples, it’s clear that coffee does not contain fluoride.

However, this is not entirely true.

Now let me tell you why…

1. Hidden Fluoride In Coffee?

When it comes to fluoride in coffee, this is where it gets interesting.

Specifically when you look at Sulfuryl fluoride.

A fumigant that’s widely used on many post-harvest foods, especially coffee beans.3

Now the way fumigation works, is by filling an enclosed area with gaseous fumigants to suffocate or poison the pests within. At that point, its toxic effect appears within the cells of the insects by disrupting glycolysis and other critical metabolic processes.4

sign of sulfuryl fluoride being used as a fumigant

However, it’s toxic effects don’t stop at insects and pests…

Especially when you consider the residue leftover.

In addition, taking a look at the Federal Register shows us federal allowances (USA) for inorganic fluoride residues in food fumigated with sulfuryl fluoride fall into toxic levels that are known to cause serious health complications, including crippling skeletal fluorosis.4

Shockingly, these new allowances allow up to 15 ppm of inorganic fluoride residue on coffee, while sulfuryl fluoride residue is capped at 1 ppm.3

Unfortunately, the EPA is well aware of this and sulfuryl fluoride will not be disconnected anytime soon.

Thankfully there’s an easy solution explained in the next section.

2. Pesticides In Coffee

To add insult to injury, coffee beans are among the most heavily sprayed crops in the world.

Beans are steeped in synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides- creating a swirling cocktail of toxins in your morning cup of coffee.

All of which is confirmed in a recent search of the BC Global database on pesticides, which listed 45 different pesticides that are currently used on coffee in the USA.5

Not to mention, several of these pesticides have the ability to wreak havoc on human health.

As many studies have linked increased pesticide exposure to cancer, fertility issues, Alzheimer’s, ADHD, and even birth defects. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

danger, pesticides sprayed on plant sign

Despite all of this, chemical usage continues to grow all over the world.

Which means it’s up to you to protect yourself.

And thankfully, it’s quite easy.

Buy organic coffee and most importantly, buy from a brand that prides itself in doing it the right way.

3. Fluoride In Store-Bought Coffee? (Starbucks, McDonald’s, Tim Hortons, etc)

Up until now, we’ve been talking about coffee made at home with filtered water.

Water that does not contain fluoride.

But what if you buy your coffee at a coffee shop like Starbucks?

Do they use filtered water or do they serve you coffee with tap water, that contains a mix of fluoride, chlorine and a dash of lead?

starbucks coffee cup

Thankfully, I’ve been able to test samples from dozens of different stores.

Unfortunately, to keep this article to only one table I’ve decided to send the results through email (don’t worry I won’t spam you with emails, I’m too busy reading about fluoride).

But before you fill out your information below let’s just say I was shocked and disappointed.

Enter your email below to receive fluoride test results on 14+ coffee shops!

transparent coffee cups

Especially when you consider it would cost stores a couple pennies to filter their water.

So imagine going to Starbucks, paying $24 for a cup of coffee, only to have tap water used…

Which brings us to the next point.

4. Make Sure You Use Fluoride-Free Water

Since coffee beans naturally don’t contain fluoride, the only other concern is the water you use.

And let’s not forget that ingesting fluoride with caffeine results in more fluoride being absorbed into your body.

Something that can easily be avoided if you use bottled water without fluoride (list of fluoride levels for 114+ brands).

Or the more cost-friendly and convenient option of water filters that remove fluoride (link to my guide where I’ve tested 33+ filters and give you the top 3 to choose from).

Now the most popular and easiest way of getting started, would have to be getting a pitcher from Clearly Filtered (best brand of all the filters I’ve tested).

Clearly Filtered Pitcher

Fluoride Reduction: 98%

Fluoride Reduction: 98%

Note: if you plan on buying the pitcher, you should buy from Clearly Filtered (link to their website) and not Amazon. The price you pay will be cheaper and shipping time is the exact same if not faster through Clearly Filtered.

It’s important to know, not all filters remove fluoride and many brands lie.

That’s why I’d suggest for reasons outlined in the water filters guide, to stick to either reverse osmosis, gravity-fed filters like the Berkey, or Clearly Filtered.

As demonstrated in does reverse osmosis remove fluoride and do Berkey water filter remove fluoride– both filtered tap water all the way down to 0.0 ppm of fluoride.

As well as doing it for pennies per gallon.

And no, for those wondering, as shown in does boiling water remove fluoride, boiling water can NOT remove fluoride.

5. Does Roasting Remove Or Transform Fluoride?

After testing hundreds of coffee’s only to see 0.0 ppm each and every time, a new thought emerged.

I thought maybe coffee beans contain fluoride but the process of roasting either removed or transformed the fluoride, making it undetectable to fluoride testing.

To confirm this possibility I decided to get my hands on unroasted green coffee beans.

green bean coffee beans

Once I found a coffee roastery, I bought 24 different samples of green beans, made green bean coffee, and tested for fluoride.

The results…

Each and every sample, came back fluoride-free.

Confirming that green coffee beans also do not contain fluoride.

Now, you’d think coffee would get my stamp of approval since it’s fluoride-free.

But there’s one last thing you should know.

6. What Coffee Do I Recommend?

women choosing coffee in store aisle

The goal here is to enjoy a cup of coffee while minimizing the effect it has on your health.

With this in mind, choosing a coffee that does not contain fluoride, pesticides, and other toxins is a great place to start.

And after going through more coffee than I could have ever imagined, a few brands stuck out.

Natural Force and Clean Coffee Co (links to Amazon) are by far the best quality, pride themselves in doing it the right way and most importantly, make their coffee quality lab results available to the public.

While a cheaper but great alternative would be Kicking Horse.

Concluding Thoughts

At this point you’ve learned everything you need to know about fluoride in coffee.

But let’s not forget, if you continue drinking coffee it’s very important to eliminate all fluoride exposure.

As stated before, caffeine helps fluoride absorb into the body.

So I’d highly suggest visiting the fluoride detox page, where you’ll go through the 8 steps to completely eliminate fluoride exposure and detox your body of stored fluoride.

Or even better, you should complete the 28-Day Fluoride Detox Program (link to sign up page).

Lastly, here are a few other useful resources:

Anyways, that’s all for this article.

I lied, one last thing!

With so many people drinking coffee now a days, you’re bound to help someone by sharing this information.
