what else you should know

guarana seed

Guarana is a spreading, vine-like that is native to the Brazilian Amazon region, most notably Parintins and Manaus. The red, berry-like fruit of the plant houses a black seed that is roasted and brewed into a beverage in the same manner as cocoa or coffee beans.

The powdered seed is stirred into hot beverages and smoothies, or is made into a paste known as Brazilian chocolate and used to enhance the sweetness and flavor of fresh fruit.
