Default Coffee brands that contain aspartame?

Does anybody know which brands of coffee use aspartame? My step dad drinks a lot of coffee who has bi-polar disorder (yes I know caffeine alone is bad for BPD) but apparently aspartame is much worse, inducing panic attacks and the such.

We buy Blue Ribbon All Purpose Roasted Coffee. He is also an elderly, so I believe this drink is what has messed with his health and well-being immensely.

Buy organic coffee, preferably fair trade and not a big corp version of coffee, anything less is not coffee imo.

coffee in general is bad news, it prevents the absorbing of b vitamins, that alone should be able to cause bipolar

Commercial coffee is also said to have msg!

If you feel you must buy commercial coffee at least stay away from pre-ground stuff, you'll never know whats in it plus it's most likely gone rancid.

Do you know of any good sites that would ship to Canada? We still on this corp. coffee grains and I'm still unsure if this brand has aspartame as I can't even find their site anywhere. I don't know if you can grow an immunity (vibrate high enough to cancel out any harmful effects?) to aspartame if you supplement your immune system enough with nutrients, meditation, exercise, and regular cannabis smoking. Who knows maybe I'm limiting myself just by drinking it (if there even is any aspartame in this brand of coffee).

Basically if you buy your coffee from such places as "Costco" or "the "99 cent store", you can bet that anything goes as to what the true ingrediants are. Not to mention that the coffee has long gone stale.

You're question is interesting, so I conducted a thorough indepth study (ok I googled aspartame in coffee ) but I couldn't find anything. but I should thank you for getting me to think about the amount of coffee I drink (way too much).
time to cut down methinks.

As one of the other posters mentioned, coffee inhibits the absorption of B Vitamins. I think there is a really strong link between B vitamin deficiency and depression (maybe why celiacs so often suffer from depression).

This website is useful:

http://chetday.com/vitaminbdeficiencies.html

"Once your body has been deprived of the vitamin B complex due to reasons stated above, it begins to show symptoms (signs) of altered, diminished or poor health. This is because the vitamin B complex (within foods, not vitamin pills) is responsible for such a wide variety of activities, including cellular differentiation, transmission of nerve electricity, health of nerve cells, heart pulse rate, muscular contraction, digestion, brain function, thought processes and energy production. Without adequate vitamin B complex from foods, you can experience one or more of any one of these symptoms:

* mental problems
* heart palpitations
* heart arrythmias
* fibrillation
* indigestion
* chronic fatigue
* chronic exhaustion
* paranoia, vague fears, fear that something dreadful is about to happen
* nervousness
* ADD (attention deficiency), inability to concentrate, irritability
* feeling of uneasiness
* thoughts of dying
* easy agitation, frustration
* inability to sleep (insomnia)
* restlessness
* tingling in hands
* tingling fingers and toes
* rashes
* crying spells, inability to cope
* soreness all over
* and so much more. "

P.S. Organic decaff is OK. I have felt much better since cutting out caffeine.

That is a brilliant point you have made there... I don't think that people really make that association between the two..

I gave up coffee 3 years ago as it just didn't seem natural. If my body was tired, I would drink coffee. Is that not falsified strength and somewhat of a physical crutch? I decided to allow my body to cope naturally with the working day..Hence if my body could not cope, where was my business in adding something into my system that would enable me to cope? Is that not similar to the effects of speed??

I can taste aspartame no matter what its in.

I have not found a UK coffee brand of ground coffee which has aspartame in it. Maybe the crap freeze dried suff, but that tastes nothing like coffee anyway, should be re-branded freeze dried brown cranules of whatever we want.

I am gifted with a tongue which picks out aspartame within the first few seconds of a swig, it's not hard the stuff makes the tongue feel fury and dry and makes the drink you are drinking not quench your thirst at all.

Why would they try n sweeten coffee anyway?

Me thinks this is an urban myth.

Never heard of aspartame or any other artificial sweetner being added to coffee though it might be in this (fake) Cappucino powder that especially girls love to drink. This brew has nothing to do with Cappucino. It is nothing more than chemicals mixed with tons of sugar.

I am glad I have managed to cut down the amount of coffee I used to drink from about 4-8 cups a day to 0-1. Before I started working a few years ago I could not even drink one cup without gettig incredibly anxious. Then I started to drink it to keep myself awake at work. Soon I found myself not eating my healthy breakfast like I used to but having just coffee and cigarettes before work.
I don't know how I managed not to have a breakdown from often consuming not much more than coffee and cigarettes until I came home from work and sleeping only 3-5 hours a night.
Now getting about 8 hours of sleep and almost no coffee and less cigarettes
I realize what a mess I was in the last years without actually realizing it.

Now I sometimes get an very unpleasant buzz from coffee in the 1. and 2. chakra. Maybe that is what makes clozaril feeling horny. Same thing with speed. (Tried it a few time, very ugly substance) It just messes with your energy system because it gives you the illusion of beeing full of energy while you are actually depleting your body.
