Our green coffee extract is a natural source of caffeine. Kerry research from 2019 demonstrated a higher consumer demand for products that support energy. To fulfill this demand, our RD&A, sensory and analytical scientists teamed up to create a powdered green coffee extract which is obtained from 100% unroasted coffee beans and is a naturally occurring source of caffeine. Unlike our other coffee extracts, which are often primarily developed for taste, this newly developed green coffee extract has a standardised level of caffeine and can be used across a wide variety of wet and dry applications to deliver natural caffeine with subtle earthy and herbal flavors.
Coffee is said to have been discovered by a goat herder who noticed his goats became extremely energetic after eating certain berries. While coffee is native to Ethiopia and Sudan, the earliest credible evidence of coffee drinking appears in 15th century Sufi shrines of southern Arabia, now Yemen. This marks the first-time coffee seeds were known to be roasted and brewed in a manner similar to how coffee is currently prepared and consumed. Today, coffee is the most popular beverage worldwide, with more two billion cups consumed every day.
