Not to defend energy drinks, but if I were you I would compare them to cola,orangejuice and whatnot. They almost have the same g/l as those energy drinks (dunno about rockstar but redbull, effect are actually less then cola in my country)
just out of curiosity, what country is that?
i don't think you're being honest about that last bit...
I´ll list some juices and drinks I have in front of me currently (just for you)
g/l means how much Grams per Liter.
Ok, EnergyDrink has 0.1g/100ml more than Cola, I remembered it the other way. But look at the GrapeJuice....
Be aware, while the two juices are made from concentrate, natural juices have almost the same values, except it´s fructose, not sugar. Do you still think I´m not honest?
ok, maybe not dishonest, just not properly informed....sugar isn't the active ingredient, or ingredients that make energy drinks effective....if that were the case, we could dump an assload of sugar into plain old water, and be good to go....
the active ingredients, that make them "energy drinks" are things like caffine, taurine, guarana, B-vitamins, yerba mate, creatine, things like this....
these are the things you need to look at, in terms of amount in g/l
I for one avoid these energy drinks not because of the caffeine but because of the sugar.

So I have to smell that you did not read the post I was replying to?
And now it´s my fault for correcting you, using your own technique?
Great. And still, you´re not able to say "I was wrong", yet you write "essentially I was write".
