Caffeine is a safe ingredient. It is one of the most studied food and beverage ingredients in the world. Caffeine is present naturally in tea leaves, coffee beans and cocoa beans (chocolate) and has been used for centuries. It can also be man-made in a laboratory.

Caffeine is used to enhance the flavour of some carbonated drinks, adding a slightly bitter taste. It complements both calorific and low and no calorie sweeteners to provide an overall enjoyable flavour in drinks. Caffeine is also added to energy drinks for its ability to aid alertness.

The amount of caffeine found in our sparkling drinks is relatively small - about 30mg of caffeine per 330ml serving.

Suitable for regular consumption

The European Union, and other health and regulatory authorities around the world, recognise caffeine as safe for regular consumption. The European Commission and the Food Standards Agency of Great Britain both state that caffeinated drinks are safe to consume daily in moderation. Moderate caffeine consumption for adults, considered to be about 300mg per day - or the amount contained in 2-3 cups of coffee - has not been associated with adverse health effects. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, or women trying to become pregnant, should consult a doctor regarding caffeine consumption. Parents should consult with their healthcare providers about what is age appropriate for their children.
