What is the best way to consume guarana seed powder? Answered
I recently bought 50g of guarana seed powder so use as a flavoring agent and caffeine source for my own energy drink. As i sadly discovered, Energy drinks such as red bull , rockstar and V dont actually use guarana, they use a synthetic substitute which tastes just like the seeds when prepared carefully to avoid being spoiled, aka, guarana flavoring. Then they add a small amount of guarana extract for the guranaine , a slow releasing form of caffeine which makes it last longer than caffeine alone.
Anyway, i have my guarana seed which was improperly produced resulting in it becoming extremely bitter and completely losing its normal guarana flavour. What is the best way to consume the amounts i need to get a decent boost in the start of the day, i really do need it for work, i have a new job as a labourer, laying turf, and in a day ill lay several tonnes of grass, which takes up allot of energy, especially in 80-100 humidity at roughly 30-33 celcius.
whats the best way to take my guarana seed powder, its fully dry and super fine, but also extremely bitter and foul tasting, like a half teaspoon of pure caffeine inside a mouthfull of cinnamon powder .
Any ideas on how to mask the taste?
