Study finds synthetic caffeine in beverages claiming wholly ‘natural’ sources | FoodieDoc says: | Scoop.it

FDA demands that added caffeine be listed on ingredient labels, but not for drinks from tea or coffee.

 

German scientists say they have found synthetic caffeine in four beverages on sale that claimed to use wholly natural sources, according to an article in the Journal of Anlytical Chemistry .

 

The German group has developed a simpler test for determining caffeine’s origins that could curtail a ‘high risk’ of fraudulous labeling.
