A new green coffee powder has been claimed by its maker to offer drinkers a gradual supply of caffeine for up to eight hours – removing the “boom and bust” effect of the stimulant.

By providing a sustained release of caffeine, WGCP (whole green coffee powder) can reduce its associated side-effects, according to Taiyo.

Conventional energy drinks are often criticised for their immediate caffeine boost and subsequent period of fatigue. However, with its sustained release, WGCP was suitable for “natural”​ and “gentle”​ energy products, Taiyo said.

Manufacturers also can incorporate the powder into a variety of products, such as breakfast cereals, oatmeal, granola bars, and protein powders, it added.
