What drinks are high in nickel?

Importantly, some foods, beverages, and medications can contain high levels of nickel and can lead to an increase in the body’s nickel levels, so it is important to be aware of their sources. Examples of nickel-containing drinks include beer, tea and coffee, chocolate, cocoa and cocoa products, soft drinks containing caramel coloring, energy drinks, and soy milk.

Other nickel-containing beverages include mint tea, some fruit juices, white wine, and hard liquor. In addition, certain beers, particularly dark German beers and stout beers, can contain high levels of nickel.

Many people who suffer from nickel allergy and intolerance tend to avoid these beverages in order to prevent nickel overload and the associated adverse health effects.
