Folgers low acid coffee
Has anyone tried the new Folgers low acid coffee they are advertising on TV which is supposed to be stomach friendly and what did you think of it?

Coffee - low acid
I haven't tried that one, but I have used Gevalia's low acid coffees with much success. I joined their club and you can talk with the sales rep who will check the coffees and tell you which ones have the lowest acid in them.
Also, if you put some of those little packets of acid reducer into the grounds before you make the coffee, you don't need to add them to each cup. If you go to a restaurant, you can take the packets with you and use them in your coffee on the go. I don't recall the name of the product without going to get some from the pantry.
Regardless I still only use decaffienated coffee no matter what coffee I am drinking -- that is to me the biggest difference.
I will have to check out the coffee you mentioned -- I am guessing it is less expensive than the Gevalia since this is from a mail order service... but it is very good coffee and with IC, it is nice to have something you REALLY enjoy and be able to eat/drink it!
Thanks for the news -- I will check it out!

I have a toddy maker, like the one sold in the ICN Shop, and it's much less expensive to make my own low acid coffee. The toddy maker "cold brews" a coffee concentrate, which is kept refrigerated and added to hot water as used. I have one of those really hot water faucets so it's easy for me.
DonnaHave you checked the ICN Shop?

What are you talking about when you say "little packets of Acid Reducer"? Are you talking about Prelief or something else?

The "Simply Smooth" is good. It is a med. roast.
What is the acid reducer you speak of in restaurants???
