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.

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