What is Caffeine?

A nerve stimulant, Caffeine is a product used widely throughout the world in countless products. A white, crystalline powder, the manufacture of Caffeine occurs both from natural and synthetic means.

In nature, you can find Caffeine in a range of nuts, plants and seeds, usually within Africa, Eastern Asia and South America. It is used in plants to protect them from animals and competition from nearby plants. A typical example is the coffee bean.

Synthetic Caffeine undergoes a range of steps to become the product we know in production. It initially starts with Ammonia conversion. Various other changes occur until the raw "caffeine" is created. It is then rinsed with sodium Nitrite, Acetic Acid, Sodium carbonate and Chloroform to remove a mild glow that comes through during manufacture. Following this, it is milled, sieved and purified to become Caffeine.

Most companies use Caffeine primarily to increase their customers' energy (through Caffeine's use as a stimulant). As such, you can find this in sports nutrition, pre and post work out supplements.

Additionally, medicines also use Caffeine to aid with this. Food and beverage companies have a similar application, but traditionally within smaller doses in carbonated drinks.
