Sugars

Red Bull Energy Drink is made with real sugars.

Sugars are well known carbohydrates and can be found in many foodstuffs from fruits and fruit juices to other beverages including energy drinks. Carbohydrates are basic nutrients consumed in the daily diet, and whether found in fruits or Red Bull Energy Drink, your body processes these sugars the same way.

Red Bull Energy Drink contains 27 g of sugars per 250 ml. This is the same amount of sugars as an equivalent amount of orange or apple juice.

There is also Red Bull without sugars: Red Bull Sugarfree.

Did you know?

The amount of sugars in a can of Red Bull Energy Drink is comparable to the sugar level in an equivalent amount of apple or orange juice. One 250 ml can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains 27 g of sugars.

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 foodstuffs 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.
