B-group vitamins

Vitamins are essential micronutrients that are required for maintaining normal body functions.

There are two types of vitamins: fat soluble and water soluble. Red Bull contains water-soluble vitamins. Water-soluble vitamins do not get stored as much in the body as fat-soluble vitamins. Instead, they circulate through the blood plasma. Whatever the body does not use is released. Red Bull contains the water-soluble B-group vitamins niacinamide (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6 and vitamin B12.

These B-group vitamins contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism, such as the build-up and break-down of carbohydrates and proteins, and contribute to normal mental performance (pantothenic acid) and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue (niacin, pantothenic acid, B6, B12).

Moreover, B-group vitamins play a central role in the brain. They contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.


Taurine is an amino acid, naturally occurring in the human body and present in the daily diet. It is involved in a wide range of biological processes. 

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 different foodstuffs like scallops, fish, poultry and most infant formulas.

The human body contains 70 times more taurine than one 8.4 fl oz can of Red Bull.

Aspartame & Acesulfame K

Acesulfame K is a non-caloric sweetener. It is used worldwide in over a thousand different products including foods and drinks like chewing gum, dairy products, baked goods, etc.

Aspartame is a low-calorie sweetener that is produced synthetically. It is used worldwide in over 5,000 different products (such as soft drinks, yogurts, candy, chewing gum, etc.).

Both, Aspartame and Acesulfame K, 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).
