Caffeine in Food

Pure Caffeine Powder

Pure Caffeine Powder
4706 mg
per teaspoon
This item contains dangerous levels of caffeine

Pure caffeine powder can be purchased by anyone to boost the caffeine content of food or beverages.

However, this product is not recommended. 

Just 1 teaspoon of caffeine powder has about 4706mg of caffeine, which is enough to cause serious harm and severe overdose symptoms. This product is the most dangerous caffeine-related product!

The FDA posted a warning, urging consumers not to purchase this powdered caffeine. More recently, the FDA sent warning letters to 5 distributors of powdered caffeine.

In 2018 the FDA issued a ban on bulk caffeine powders. 

In 2019 Australia banned caffeine powder from being sold to the general public. 

The only people who should consider this product are those that have a digital scale and can precisely measure out a safe dose of caffeine.

Using common measuring devices like measuring spoons etc. will likely result in too large of a dose. 

Some caffeine powders also use an "anti-caking agent" but this doesn't change the caffeine content enough to justify being more generous with this type.

We feel that unless you are a food or beverage manufacturer,  buying bulk caffeine powder isn't a wise decision unless you buy the necessary equipment needed to measure it accurately.

Those in possession of caffeine powder should keep the product in its original packaging and out of the reach of children.

At least two deaths have been officially reported from overdosing on caffeine powder when accidentally ingested 2 spoonfuls.
