May, 2002, Wayne, New Jersey……Triarco announces its introduction of Metabromine and Metabromine-G into the $41-billion diet and energy category and is expected to be welcomed by millions of consumers looking for a pure, natural energy source!

Derived from the Theobroma Cacao tree, the fruit of the caocao has been used for centuries in South and Central America for its stimulating effects. Triarco now brings this remarkable energizer to its U.S. customers with Metabromine -- a standardized extract of 6% theobromine and 1.5% caffeine blend. Metabromine-G offers further stimulating effects with a standardized extract of 5% theobromine and 5% caffeine from pure Guarana.

Millions of consumers can already attest to the “euphoric effects” of theobromine, a key constituent found in chocolate -- safely consumed for centuries throughout the world. The natural blend of both theobromine and caffeine in a standardized extract provides both a mild stimulating and thermogenic effect without over-stimulating the nervous system and is expected to appeal to a vast consumer base in the diet, energy and sports categories.

Metabromine can be taken as a single-ingredient supplement or incorporated into numerous blends and dosage forms including bars, protein powders, juices and functional foods.
