Sometimes it can be hard to separate the myths from the facts, particularly when you see so many media reports about energy drinks. That’s why we created EnergyDrinkInformation.com. Here’s an example of what you’ll find there:
Myth: Energy drinks have “high” amounts of caffeine
Fact: The vast majority of energy drinks consumed in the United States – including Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar, AMP, Full Throttle and NOS – have similar or lower levels of caffeine than home-brewed coffee which many Americans enjoy on a daily basis. And many contain about half the caffeine of a similarly-sized coffeehouse coffee. A 16 fluid ounce energy drink typically contains between 160 and 240 milligrams of caffeine, while the same size coffeehouse coffee contains around 300 to 330 milligrams. Moreover, caffeine has been safely consumed around the world for hundreds of years.
Also - remember that energy drinks, their ingredients and labeling are all regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). So, the next time you find yourself in a conversation about energy drinks, don’t forget that you can always get the facts by visiting EnergyDrinkInformation.com and LetsClearItUp.org.
