Guarana is the legendary fruit of the Paulina Cupana vine grown in the Amazon Jungle and used by the Amazonian Indians for thousands of years. Guarana is a prominent ingredient and flavor in Brazilian and Venezuelan culinary culture, found in sodas, drinks, chocolates and as flavorings in sweets.
Guarana has recently been "discovered" in the United States, though like many "exotic" imported foreign flavors, it has been severely misunderstood. Because of the high level of guaranine, an alternative name for caffeine, it has been considered a "miracle" drug for energy and weight loss and its inclusion has been advertised in a number of supplement and energy drink products. Aside from being a natural caffeine stimulant, guarana in all forms is a cherished and distinct flavor and is very dear to Brazilian culture.
