Guarana


Guarana is a vine native to the Amazon basin named in honor of the Guarani tribe, who brew a beverage used in medicine and ceremony from the roasted seeds of the bright red berries of the plant.

The whole seeds contain a substance called guaranine, the most abundant naturally-occurring source of caffeine known. In fact, a cup of brew made from guarana seed has nearly three times the caffeine as a cup of coffee.

Because of the similarity in flavor and aroma to chocolate or cocoa, guarana is also known as Brazilian cocoa and Brazilian chocolate. Be aware, however, that guarana seed contains caffeine that exceeds coffee by 1.5 to 3 times in concentration. In fact, the seed is the highest, naturally occurring source of caffeine known.
