Parmalat, an international producer and distributor of mainstream dairy products and fruit-based drinks, has also jumped on board the guarana boat with the launch of Ice Break Loaded—Real Coffee with a Guarana Hit, featuring a blend of milk, coffee, sugar and guarana.

Rainfloresta, a division of Natranique, Inc., distributor of health, energy and cosmetic products from the Amazonian rainforest, sells Guarana GoGo packets for the energy-seeker on the go. Each packet is said to contain one gram of pure organic guarana, which can be added to tea, juice, yogurt, cereal, smoothies or water.
