Understanding the Risks of Smoked Yerba Mate

Yerba mate, a beloved beverage enjoyed worldwide, undergoes processing methods that can impact its safety. Most notably, the prevalent practice of using smoked drying systems, employing burnt wood to dry the mate leaves, poses significant health risks. This method is known to yield yerba mate containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), chemicals that have been linked to carcinogenic effects when consumed in elevated concentrations.
