Delivering the health benefits of chocolate without the guilt
Chocolate is the most craved food in the world, and for good reason. It delivers not only powerful sensory benefits, such as aroma, flavor and texture, but it also delivers mood-related benefits such as increased energy and improved focus along with other health benefits − all in one package. RFI recognized that few products in the food and functional ingredient fields could deliver the same attributes and impact. In the 1990s, our team of researchers dedicated themselves to developing and bringing to market this remarkable solution - Chocamine®.
Chocamine® is a patented cocoa-based extract, comprised of a synergistic blend of substances found in chocolate, and known to promote energy, focus, mood and performance as well as satisfy cravings. The beneficial effects of chocolate come from more than one component and Chocamine® is standardized to leverage the full symphony. Some of the most notable compounds include xanthine alkaloids (principally theobromine, a mild stimulant and cognitive aid), amino acids, nutritional minerals, biogenic amines, anandamides and polyphenols. It is GRAS, great-tasting, clinically tested and a convincing source of energy.
Preliminary clinical study - 2005
Participants: 3 healthy adults
Assessment Tool: Audio-Visual Multiprocessing
Dosage: 1000 mg Chocamine®
Results: The data from the AVMT studies show that consuming Chocamine® resulted in improved ability to react quickly to alternating auditory and visual commands and improved ability to ignore interfering auditory commands while remaining focused on a visual task.
Clinical study - 2009
Participants: 40 healthy volunteers
Assessment Tool: IMPACT™ Cognitive Assessment − a prominent neurocognitive research tool used by scientists in the field of neuropsychology, particularly to measure the impact of odor, flavor and the stimulation of other chemical senses.
Dosage: 1000 mg Chocamine®
• Significant improvement in test assessing short-term memory and visual-motor response speed
• Up to 39% improvement after Chocamine® consumption
• Positive trends in tests assessing reaction time and impulse control/response inhibition
Chocamine® was formulated to provide functionality in several areas, including energy, mood, cognitive function and craving control. Clinical research supports improvement in the ability to focus and in short-term memory. In addition, the following benefits are supported by general research findings and conventional wisdom:
• Energy, endurance & stamina
• Mental acuity & concentration
• Mood & outlook
• Patented & unique formula
• Self-affirmed GRAS
• Not based on caffeine
• Clinically tested
• Aroma and flavor of chocolate − great tasting!
Chocamine® has been evaluated by an expert panel and awarded self-affirmed GRAS status.
