Caffeine in Food

There’s Caffeine in Food, But What About Water?

Read labels carefully to figure out what gives your energy water that extra boost

Hi-Ball Energy Sparkling Energy Water, MiO Energy, Neuro Sonic, Vitaminwater Energy. Some “energy” waters (or powders or drops) list green coffee extract or guarana extract on their labels, but any “lift” you get from those ingredients comes from their caffeine. Some also add unproven energy boosters like taurine, B vitamins, and ginseng.

The caffeine in most products ranges from about 50 milligrams (Starbucks VIA Refreshers), which some people would barely feel, to 160 mg (Hi-Ball Sparkling Energy Water), about what’s in a “short” (8 oz.) coffee or two shots of espresso at Starbucks. Most labels list caffeine, often in small print.
