Next up, Gentlemen: We shall invent a round thing that we can mount in pairs upon a support structure to make it easier to move goods and people across a plane. We'll call it "WHEEL"

Except if you poured that stuff on like they are in the picture of the fries, you'd probably be dead from a caffeine overdose

So mix it with maltodextrin?

Just what you need when you sit down to a greasy, salty meal: your diabetic heart pumping even faster than normally is. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Powdered caffeine isn't news (caffiene already comes in tablets, tablets are made from powder, in a pinch you could crush the tablets - though I'm sure you could find it powdered if you looked hard enough).

IIRC though, the difference with this thing is that they supposedly have a non-bitter caffeine.

// Because if you've ever let a caffeine pill dissolve too much, you know the issue.

Death by caffeine overdose is a nasty way to go.

I must know:

Will it make me so excited?

...or so...

...so...

...scared?!?
 
2014-06-25 12:22:43 PM
Oh, that's exactly what my heart needs. EXACTLY.

Side story:

Eventually came to wonder where caffeine comes from, letting my imagination take me to sprawling sub-african caffeine mines and ocean bulk carriers with giant holds filled with caffeine ore and a crew that never slept.

Apparently, and considerably less interesting, most of it supplied by recovering it from the decaffeination process used for coffee.

Seriously.  How do people not know this?  I've been doing this for 10 years, it's in the spice drawer next to the paprika and garlic.  I prefer coffee, but if I don't have time to make it - 1/8th teaspoon in my oatmeal and I'm set.

moike: Death by caffeine overdose is a nasty way to go.


Nicotine OD is also a bad way to go.  Which is about the only strong downside I see to vaping - having vials of concentrated nicotine that could get in the hands of a youngster or a dimwit.  The stuff absorbs through skin, too.

200 doses at 300 mg each, 60,000 mg per bottle. Half the bottle is possibly a lethal dose, the full bottle would very likely kill you.

Make it caffeine plus MSG and we might be on to something....

Friend of mine did some work as a grad student to find a way to make decaf coffee with out all the chemicals. He made a filter. Just brew coffee as normal, pour through the filter and what's left is 100% decaf coffee. The caffeine stays in the filter which he collected and sold on the side, I think...

Decaf is usually made using a water extraction technique.

/yes I know water is a chemical

This was awhile back when the used other things.... the biggest draw back was that pure caffeine was the result and company didn't want the liability of having some schmoe brew 20 pots of coffee, collect the caffeine and take one big hit.

That's what the powdered alcohol is for.

use citric acid, titrate to pH 7.0, then oven dry.

Psycho active chemical with horrendous withdrawal profile in powder form?  It's OK because it's caffiene.

From caffex.com:

Our new non-breakable shakers, with 1 (one!) sprinkle shot giving you 100 mg caffeine, the equivalent of 1 cup of strong coffee


Uh....that's extremely dangerous if you reasonably expect the average person to be able to measure out such a small quantity.

FDA banhammer in 3........2.........1........

I work in labs where we make artificial cerebrospinal fluid and plasma.  I have everything I need to make the best sports drinks ever. I have done so on a few occasions. I once did the math on how much it would cost to order a bulk supply of caffeine powder, how much caffeine is in the average coffee, how many coffees the  bulk order would be equivalent to, etc... turns out, making your own stuff is a LOT cheaper than buying regular caffeinated drinks.

/drinking straight ACSF is a hard thing to do.
