Caffeine Production Cost Analysis 2020
Caffeine is widely known as a central nervous system or CNS stimulant of the methylxanthine class. It is the world's most commonly consumed psychoactive drug. Unlike several other psychoactive substances, it is legal as well as unregulated in nearly all parts of the world. There are numerous known mechanisms of action to explain the effects of caffeine. It reversibly blocks the adenosine action on its receptor, thus consequently preventing the onset of drowsiness induced by adenosine. Moreover, caffeine stimulates certain portions of the autonomic nervous system.
Caffeine is bitter, and in appearance, it is a white crystalline purine, a methylxanthine alkaloid. It is chemically related to the guanine bases of deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA as well as ribonucleic acid or RNA. It can be found in the seeds, nuts, or leaves of several plants native to Africa, East Asia as well as from South America, and further helps to protect them against predator insects and prevents the germination of nearby seeds.
A well-known source of caffeine is the coffee bean. It is a misnomer for the seed of coffea plants. People drink beverages containing caffeine to relieve or prevent drowsiness as well as to boost cognitive performances. To make these drinks, caffeine is derived by steeping the plant product in water, which is a process called infusion. Caffeine-containing drinks, like coffee, tea, and cola, are popular and are extensively consumed.
