A variant of the liana plant harvested in the Amazon, the skin of Guarana is red whilst the inside of the white meat is surrounded by black seeds. These seeds contain many tannins, proteins and starch. Guarana is packed with antioxidants and large amounts of Guaranine which acts as a natural alternative to caffeine. The Guarana seeds are carefully extracted by hand for the highest quality, cleaned in natural water and dried. The dried Guarana seeds are ground into powder in their raw state. This preserves their nutritional value.  

Paullinia Cupana (Paullinia sorbilis) belongs to the Sapindaceae (Soapberry family). It is a climbing, shrubby vine, growing in northern Brazil, in moist, sandy locations. The flexible stem is very long, and takes root readily wherever it touches the ground, so that a single plant often extends over considerable space. In the wild state the vine attaches itself to large trees, and the fruit is difficult to collect, and of small yield; the vine is cultivated without support. The leaves are alternate, stipulate, and consist each of 5 smooth leaflets. The flowers are small, numerous, and disposed in erect, axillary, close panicles; the sepals are 5, the petals are 4, and have each a large pubescent scale on the inside, near the base; the stamens are 8, attached to a thick column. The pistil has a 3-lobed ovary, and a sessile, 3-parted stigma. The fruit is pear-shaped, and generally has a single brownish seed attached to the base, and nearly filling the pericarp.[3]

Most modern commercial Guarana is grown on government plantations where the highest quality plants are harvested.

Organic Guarana powder is certified organic by the Soil Association under the code GB-ORG-05.
