Is Red Bull Energy Drink safe?

Red Bull Energy Drink is available in more than 167 countries, including every state of the European Union, because health authorities across the world have concluded that Red Bull Energy Drink is safe to consume. More than 5 billion cans were consumed last year and about 50 billion cans since Red Bull was created more than 27 years ago. One 250 ml can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains 80mg of caffeine, about the same amount as in a cup of coffee. With regards to the other key ingredients the European Food Safety Authority concluded in 2009 that these are of no health concern.
