This flavouring additive has been used for a long time in the food industry to add a little Raspberry sweetness to certain foodstuffs. Indigo Herbs has acquired a very high quality, 100% pure Raspberry Ketone Powder to add to our growing list of ingredients that can be used to subtly enhance the flavour of foods and drinks. Offered in 50g, 100g and 250g weights we are sure this relatively new supplement will be a fantastic addition to your kitchen. So what is a Raspberry Ketone? Essentially it is a phenolic aroma compound that has been isolated by modern science. In its natural form Raspberry Ketone is extremely expensive with the extraction process being lengthy and complicated. To make this supplement more available to the public and for industrial food purposes, the Raspberry Ketone is synthetically produced and results in a white crystalline powder. It has a soft subtle aroma and taste, and is the exact replication of natural Raspberry Ketone.
In 1995 Japanese researchers discovered that Raspberry Ketone had a similar molecular structure to two anti-obesity compounds known as Ephedrine and Synephrine. Later after this finding some experiments were conducted in vitro (test tubes) that concluded that Raspberry Ketones could have fat burning properties. These claims have yet to be conducted in controlled scientific studies on humans; therefore there is no scientific evidence to support the above claim of weight loss. There have been similar claims relating Raspberry Ketones to greater skin elasticity and helping in reducing hair loss. These claims also cannot as yet be strengthened by positive scientific conclusions.
Here at Indigo Herbs we make no assertion to the validity of the above claims. We offer you, our customers this ingredient to be able to make your own decisions on whether Raspberry Ketone Powder is effective. As a company we are always interested in new cutting edge ingredients and will be looking closely to see if Raspberry Ketones proves to have a positive outcome in scientific study in the near future. One thing seems certain - Raspberry Ketones have been found to have absolutely no adverse effects on human physiology.
