Green coffee extract
Green coffee beans are beans that are “raw” and have not been roasted. Coffee beans are naturally green, but they are usually roasted before being sold to the consumer. This is the process that turns them brown. Coffee beans contain a plant compound called chlorogenic acid. Levels of this acid diminish if the beans are roasted.

The white kidney bean plant (Phaseolus vulgaris) is native to Peru, Europe and the Indies.
