IFIC Webinar: Myths and Facts about Caffeine Safety: An Expert Evaluation of the Current Science
Caffeine is one of the most studied food ingredients in today’s food supply. Its safe use is confirmed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, as well as the European Food Safety Authority. U.S. regulatory agencies confirm that caffeine consumption of up to 400 milligrams/day is safe for adults and up to 200 milligrams/day is safe for pregnant women. Caffeine is naturally occurring in many foods and, according to IFIC's 2020 Food & Health Survey, more and more Americans are confirming that added caffeine and naturally occurring caffeine have the same effect. A variety of reasons for use of caffeine have been reported in the literature. Surgeons report using caffeine to reduce fatigue. Athletes report using caffeine to enhance their physical performance. Adolescents state they use caffeine for energy, taste and image enhancement. However, questions about caffeine safety and in particular, its effect on pregnancy and toxic effects of over exposure, continue to be asked by consumers and health professionals alike.

Join this one-hour webinar to 1) learn IFIC’s latest research findings on consumer perceptions and behavior regarding caffeine and 2) receive an expert, toxicological evaluation of the current science from Dr. Candace Doepker, Practice Director, ToxStrategies Food and Consumer Products. Dr. Doepker's presentation will address questions about caffeine metabolism, toxicity and safety, as well as current controversies in caffeine research.
