Guarana soda is a classic Brazilian drink. It is made from the wild plant Paullinia Cupana, found in the Brazilian rainforest. The plant actually yields a red berry. It’s seeds are used to produce soda as well as other guarana products such as teas, juices and candies to name a few.
Guarana soda tends to have a sweet fruity flavor. Like most sodas it is carbonated and its ingredients include sugar and corn syrup . It can be purchased in bottles and cans.
Guarana has characteristics similar to caffeine. Therefore, guarana is a stimulant and is used in many energy drinks and diet supplements. However, it is most popular as soda. There are many different guarana soda brands of such as Kuat, Brazilia, Schin, Bawls and Triunfo, However, the granddaddy of them all is Guarana Antarctica.
