FRS products contain Quercetin which is naturally yellow. Therefore FRS ready to drink products including concentrates, cans and bottles are yellow in color. Subtle browning can naturally occur in some ready to drink products due to oxidation (much like once an apple is cut, it can start to brown, but it's safe to consume).

In FRS ready to drink products, sedimentation is due to certain natural ingredients such as Quercetin falling out of suspension. It is completely natural and nothing to be alarmed about.

FRS products were originally developed to provide healthy sustained energy. Some may feel the benefits of FRS® products right away. For others, it may take a few times to see the benefits of regular use.

Instead, FRS® works at the cellular level to produce natural sustained energy so you don’t experience the “dips” or run low on energy.
