AUSTIN, TexasApplied Food Sciences, a functional ingredient maker, announced its new ingredient, PurCaf, will be presented at the annual BevNet Live conference in New York City, May 14-15. PurCaf is an organic, chemical-free botanical energy solution, sourced from green coffee beans. PurCaf is non-GMO (genetically modified organism) and 92 percent pure caffeine extract derived from water-extracted green coffee beans. It is ideal for companies looking to manufacture organic energy drinks.
“PurCaf and all of our green coffee extracts are targeted to be the ‘pioneer’ of natural energy for energy drink formulators looking for alternatives to synthetics," said Jackson Zapp, vice president of marketing at Applied Food Sciences. “It’s clear that organics are booming, and energy drinks are here to stay. PurCaf intersects both of these exploding markets. We’re definitely on the cutting edge in purity, sustainability and functionality."
PurCaf formulated at 150mg per serving is equal to the amount of caffeine in a specialty cup of coffee. It is easy to formulate, water soluble and clear in solution, and made from coffee beans that are 100 percent certified organic through Eco-cert and USDA. Applied Food Sciences will exhibit at the BevNet Live Tabletop EXPO.
