About our organic guarana powder

Guarana has become extremely familiar in the mainstream consumer market as a caffeine substitute in an ever widening list of ‘energy drinks’. A native evergreen sprawling shrub-like vine grown in the Amazon region, the guarana tree produces red berries that have been used like coffee in its native country Brazil for centuries. Each fruit harbours one seed which contains approximately five times as much caffeine as coffee beans.

When ripe the fruit partially opens and at this stage the seeds are harvested, to prevent them from falling on the ground; they are then roasted, dried and grounded into a powder. As with other plants producing caffeine, the high concentration of caffeine is a defensive toxin that repels pathogens from the berry and its seeds.

Guarana is widely employed to flavour carbonated soft drinks and is often used in energy bars and even chocolate bars for flavour and to market a product as an ‘energy booster’.
