DELIVERING THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHOCOLATE WITHOUT THE GUILT
Chocolate is the most craved food in the world, and for good reason. It delivers not only powerful sensory benefits, such as aroma, flavor and texture, but it also delivers mood-related benefits such as increased energy and improved focus along with other health benefits − all in one package. RFI recognized that few products in the food and functional ingredient fields could deliver the same attributes and impact. In the 1990s, our team of researchers dedicated themselves to developing and bringing to market this remarkable solution – Chocamine®.
Chocamine® is a patented cocoa-based extract, comprised of a synergistic blend of substances found in chocolate, and known to promote energy, focus, mood and performance as well as satisfy cravings. The beneficial effects of chocolate come from more than one component and Chocamine® is standardized to leverage the full symphony. Some of the most notable compounds include xanthine alkaloids (principally theobromine, a mild stimulant and cognitive aid), amino acids, nutritional minerals, biogenic amines, anandamides and polyphenols. It is GRAS, great-tasting, clinically tested and a convincing source of energy.
