Coffee beans are actually green seeds inside a bright red berry. Roasting them turns the seeds brown and creates the characteristic aroma and flavor coffee lovers crave. To create green coffee bean extract, the seeds are left unroasted. Instead they’re soaked and then concentrated to create the extract. Green coffee beans have a higher level of chlorogenic acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans. The reputation of green coffee bean extract has increased in recent years due to its range of health benefits. It has won people over through its ability to ease digestion and boost weight loss efforts.
