Benefits of Iced Coffee

According to Healthy Living Made Simple: Coffee contains many phytochemicals, antioxidants and other nutrients that research has shown as beneficial to our bodies. Luckily, some research has shown you can still have your daily coffee(s) if you brew it cold. Coffee brewed hot is far more acidic than cold-brewed, according to a number of scientific studies, and some say cold-brewed coffee even has a sweeter taste because of its lower acidity.
