Following the recent death of an Ohio teenager whose autopsy reportedly revealed blood levels of more than 70 micrograms of caffeine per milliliter, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) this week issued “consumer advice” warning parents that powdered pure caffeine is a “powerful stimulant and very small amounts may cause accidental overdose.” Such products are unregulated and sold as dietary supplements. According to the agency, a teaspoon of pure caffeine is “roughly equivalent” to the amount contained in 25 cups of coffee. FDA is encouraging the public as well as health care providers to report any adverse events related to consumption of powdered pure caffeine to the agency.
