FDA Investigates Ingestable Caffiene Dietary Supplement

American Food and Drug Administration officials intend to investigate whether or not inhalable caffeine sold in lipstick-sized canisters is safe for public use and whether or not its manufacturer is right in branding it a dietary supplement.
AeroShot has been on sale since last month in New York, Massachusetts and in France.
You place one end of the canister in your mouth and breathe in, releasing a fine powder which dissolves practically straight away.
AeroShot inventor, Harvard biomedical engineering professor David Edwards, states that the product is safe, contains no taurine or other common additives which are utilised to enhance the caffeine effect in energy drinks .
AeroShot did not need an FDA review prior to hitting the American market as it is sold as a dietary supplement there. However, New York’s U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer stated that he had met with FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg, and she agreed to review its safety and legality.
The company asserts that when used as per its label, AeroShot offers a safe amount of caffeine and B vitamins. It does not contain common additives which are commonly used to enhance the effect of caffeine in energy drinks.
