Taurine

Taurine is an amino acid, naturally occurring in the human body and present in the daily diet.  

Taurine is found in high concentrations in muscle, brain, heart and blood. A person weighing 70 kg has approximately 70 g of taurine distributed throughout their body. Put another way, a 70-kg person naturally already has in their body 70 times the amount of taurine contained in one can of Red Bull Energy Drink.

Taurine is also contained in various foods like scallops, fish, poultry and most infant formulas.

Did you know?

The human body contains 70 times more taurine than one 250 ml can of Red Bull.

Sucralose & Acesulfame K

Sucralose is a non-caloric sweetener made from sugar and therefore, it tastes like sugar. It is produced synthetically and is used in a wide variety of products, including beverages, baked goods, desserts, dairy products, canned fruits and syrups.

Sucralose and Acesulfame K are among the most-tested and most-used sugar substitutes worldwide. Both have an excellent safety profile. Numerous scientific studies demonstrate that these substances are safe for use as sweetening ingredients.

The safety of these sweeteners has been evaluated by regulatory bodies all over the world (e.g. FDA in the US). Health Authorities rely on the safety evaluations of independent scientific advisory bodies such as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA).
