With the use of certain stimulants known to enhance athletic performance, caffeine is a popular stimulant of choice for athletes’ training and competition schedule.
Why use microencapsulated caffeine in your brand?
Carbohydrate, specifically muscle glycogen, is essential fuel for the high levels of energy used by athletes.
Increased levels of caffeine can appear in the bloodstream within 15 to 45 minutes of consumption, and peak concentrations are evident one-hour post-ingestion.
Consuming caffeine in traditional forms, such as tea and coffee, leads to rapid absorption, making its stimulating effect rapid and transitory. In addition, caffeine can impart a bitter taste and may distort flavours in food systems. Microencapsulated caffeine however, overcomes these defects.
