The syrup is considered to be a healthy sweetener. Typically, tapioca syrup is a light golden color, and it contains a neutral flavor. It is used as an alternative sweetener in place of corn syrup, honey, sugar or maple syrup. Typically, the syrup is gluten-free and is not genetically modified. Many people use it as a healthy alternative to other sugars.

Caffeine,from the Italian word café, meaning coffee, is naturally made by about 60 plants. The most familiar of these are coffee leaves and beans, tea leaves, kola nuts, yerba mate, guarana berries, and cacao (the source of chocolate). In plants, caffeine is a pesticide. Insects eating plants that contain caffeine become disabled or die.
Humans have eaten plants containing caffeine for thousands of years; first chewing the seeds and leaves, and later boiling them and drinking the resulting liquid. Coffee, a major source of caffeine, was introduced to Europe from the Middle East in the seventeenth century and rapidly became a popular drink. Coffee houses began appearing in London in the mid-1600s. A German chemist purified caffeine in 1819. Today, besides being found naturally in coffee, tea, and chocolate, it is added to soft drinks, energy drinks and bars, headache remedies, and is sold as a dietary supplement to improve mental and physical functioning. The United States is a highly caffeinated nation. In 2007, it was estimated that 90% of North Americans consumed caffeine daily.
