By using a blend of immediate release, Delayed Release and Extended Release caffeine, zümXR can create a truly customized caffeine release profile in products your customers will truly experience.

Why zümXR technology is better

Caffeine is a bitter, white crystalline xanthine alkaloid that has an objectionable taste. Initial technologies created to ‘coat’ caffeine - lipids, waxes and water soluble resins, focused on masking flavor – were later adapted to modified release applications. Beyond this, other early modified release caffeine solutions were accomplished using tableting technology rather than functional coatings, which eliminated the ability to create powders and beverages. One more thing: most lipid or waxed based products are not stable These technologies limit the flexibility that formulators have in designing products and energy profiles.

zümXR Targeted Release Caffeine has been designed from the ground up to give you the most flexibility in designing your energy products and to deliver an ‘energy experience’ to consumers.
