28 Oct Deceiving Labels Leave Consumers Jittery
When you drink a shot of BAZI, you know exactly what’s going inside you. If the label is too small, you can simply go to our website and read our mega sized list of ingredients. In fact, I’ll post our label here:
Our nutrition label is one of our biggest selling points. We want you to see what makes up BAZI. Unfortunately, some other energy drink brands try to hide what’s inside them.
From the article:
On the 5-Hour Energy website, the manufacturers claim, “The key ingredients in 5-Hour Energy are also available in every day foods—like broccoli, avocados, bananas, and apples—or already in you.” A ConsumerLab.com analysis, released today, found otherwise. “The real key ingredient, as far as creating a sense of energy, is the caffeine, which is not in those foods,” says Tod Cooperman, M.D., founder of ConsumerLab.com.
Now, the manufacturers do also advertise that one bottle contains “as much caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee.”
Dr. Cooperman’s study found that one shot of 5-Hour Energy contains 207(!) mg of caffeine. To put that in perspective let’s look at some other energy drinks.
BAZI – 80 mg of caffeine
Rockstar – 160 mg
Monster – 160 mg
Amp – 144 mg
Dunkin’ Donuts Regular Coffee – 143 mg
The only thing worse than a warning label is false nutrition facts.
