Is coffee acidity bad for you?

Research shows that close to 34 combinations of natural acids are present in coffee similar to in oranges, apples, and vinegar.

With the presence of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, coffee beans are inherently acidic.

But, each body reacts differently to the natural acids when we drink coffee.

Some feel discomfort. Some experience a burning sensation is similar to heartburn and acid reflux. Those with weakened or thinning tooth enamel tend to develop tooth decay when drinking coffee.

Though such issues occur, it’s not necessarily a direct correlation to coffee. Coffee does not cause or result in acid reflux or tooth decay. Instead, those with existing conditions often have a negative body reaction to coffee.

Coffee isn’t all that acidic anyway. An average black coffee has a pH of about 5, which is similar to carrots, and the most acidic coffees have a pH of around 4.7, or about the same as a banana.
