Powdered Caffeine likely to be banned by FDA


The ability to stay fully engaged in a monotonous career or simply working to the point of exhaustion has led to the undisputed rise of the energy drink market. Primarily led by the shining star caffeine.  However fairly recently caffeine has taken a new form of delivery to users in the form of powder.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have the authority to regulate these powders because they are typically marketed as a dietary supplement.

It’s still something that should be shied away from. It’s use has already killed a young person in 2014.  Since powdered caffeine is pure it will be very dangerous in small quantities a teaspoon of the powder could likely be deadly clocking in at about the equivalent to 25 cups of coffee.  Not to mention any other sources of caffeine you may consume.
