I have purchased a product from Wal-Greens (Finest Nutrition Brand). Should it be considered generally “safe”? Here are the ingredients: Svetol 400 mg Yerba Mate Extract 120 mg other ingredients: cellulose Gelatin
I cannot advise if this product is classed as GRAS, generally recognised as safe, however what I can say is that green coffee bean extracts have very little science to show their effectiveness. As far as I am aware there are very few studies and those that exist have only been carried out on very small numbers of people. Personally I would be sceptical to use this product.
