Q: Hi can you tell me what process is used to decaffeinate this Cliper organic instant coffee. I am looking for an instant decaff that doesn't use chemicals to extract the caffeine.
A: Clipper Organic Instant Decaffeinated Coffee is certified organic by the soil association.
The Organic certification guarantees the decaffeination process employed is totally natural, ensuring there are no chemical residues in the product.
You can be confident that the caffeine has NOT been extracted using solvents such as methylene chloride or ethyl acetate. The latter is better than the former from health and environmental aspects but neither method would be allowed for organic.
There are two further processes. One is decaffeination using carbon filtration and the other uses liquid Carbon dioxide. As activated carbon and Carbon dioxide are both allowed as processing aids in organic production these processes may be used. The former is known as the Swiss water process and is the most common for organic coffee.
