What is guarana?

Guarana (Paullinia cupana) is a climber plant that belongs to the maple family. It bears leathery brown, sometimes red fruits called guara-ná which means “fruits like the eyes of people.”

The fruit opens up when it’s ripe revealing a black seed that’s surrounded by a white flesh. It is striking how at this stage, the fruit looks like an eyeball. Once you’ve seen how the fruits and seeds look like, you’d know how apt its name is.

Almost the same size as a coffee bean, this versatile plant can be utilized from the fruits down to the roots. It is a native of Brazil, Venezuela and the Amazon and has two varieties: domestic and wild.

Sateré-Maué Indians have been using guarana since pre-Columbian times in food and drinks such as tea in order to take advantage of its effects. During the 17th century, A Jesuit missionary noted that tribesmen who ingest it have so much energy that they could go hunting for days without feeling tired or hungry.

Guarana—or Brazilian cocoa as it is sometimes called—has also been included in Brazilian soft drinks since 1909.
