Some energy drinks have as much as 58 grams of sugar per container, or about 15 teaspoons. The amount of
sugar in energy drinks is difficult to determine as it is not stated on the label or on many of the product websites. A
variety of sugar sources are used including sucrose and glucose andsuch as acesulfame
potassium (Ace K), aspartame and sucralose. Artificial sweeteners have been approved for use by Health Canada

Energy drinks are not sports drinks
An Internet search for “sports drinks” brings up a mix of web pages for both sports drinks and energy drinks where
the terms are used interchangeably. Manufacturer websites for energy drinks also serve up mixed messages,
promoting energy drinks for “improved performance” and use “during times of increased mental and physical
exertion.” They frequently use athletes, teams and sports to promote their products.
However, energy drinks are not. Energy drinks should not be used during activity or exercise as
fluids or to replace electrolytes. Energy drinks are a source of carbohydrate with a very high sugar content
similar to soft drinks (approximately 10–12%) and much higher than sports drinks. Therefore, energy drinks cannot
be absorbed as quickly or as easily as sports drinks and can cause stomach upset. In addition, the majority of
energy drinks are carbonated, which makes it harder to drink enough to stay hydrated. Their high caffeine content
can actually mask the signs of dehydration.
While some improvement is noted when energy drinks are consumed (likely due to the caffeine content), there is
to support the use of energy drinks for enhancing strength performance or for aerobic and
anaerobic endurance in active individuals.
