I have never seen coffee packets containing nutritional information until few days ago when I bought a new brand of instant coffee that just hit the market. One hundred grams of coffee contains the following:
- Fiber: 30 grams
- Carbohydrate: 9 grams
- Protein: 6.5 grams
- Fat: 0.2 grams
- Natrium: 0.2 grams
- Energy: 510 kj/125 kcal
My initial reaction, wow that is a lot of fiber. On further thought I realized if I consumed 100 grams of instant coffee in a day I may have some problems, constipation certainly being not one of them. I don’t know what a serving size is in grams but it is not much, so we take a negligible amount of fiber through coffee. This information, while looking great on first sight, was totally useless. No wonder none of the other coffee packets contain this information.
However my morning coffee did have a lot of carbs, some fat, protein and other stuff, sort of. Together with coffee I ate 108 grams of rice crispies coated with caramel and chocolate. The supermarket had them on sale and a grabbed 9 bars, I ate 6 yesterday and 3 today. I hope I don’t repeat this kind of breakfast on a regular basis.

This summary is not really food related but it is still interesting. Amber Miller completed the Chicago Marathon on Sunday and guess what she did that evening – gave birth to her second child. And this is not the first time she ran a marathon while pregnant. So the baby also completed the marathon before being born.
Amber completed the whole marathon but the article didn’t say how long it took her. She alternated between running for two miles and walking for two miles throughout the race.
