Caffeine in Your Foods

One of the things I’ve been doing recently is making a concerted effort to cut back on my caffeine usage.  Coffee was the obvious place to start, but you’d be surprised by just what other foods and medicines contain caffeine

What surprised me is that Sunkist Orange Soda has just about the same amount of caffeine as Mountain Dew.  And even more surprising is that Extra Strength Excedrin has slightly less amounts of caffeine that No Doz caffeine pills, but not much. 

It’s advised that a person not consume more than 400 mg of caffeine a day, which is basically the amount of caffeine in one 16-oz. Starbucks (Grande) double brewed coffee (380mg).  [via]
