TORONTO, June 24, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Beverage Association
welcomes the assessment on energy drink safety by Health Canada. This
adds to the weight of evidence from health authorities across the world
that energy drinks are safe to consume. The CBA agrees with Health
Canada that Canadians should be aware of all the caffeine they are
consuming, not simply the caffeine found in one single product. Health
Canada states that 90 per cent of our caffeine comes from coffee and
tea, leaving 10 per cent from other sources. The amount of caffeine in
an energy drink is lower that the caffeine found in an equivalent-sized
filter drip coffee.
The Canadian Beverage Association is the national trade association
representing the broad spectrum of brands and companies that
manufacture and distribute the majority of non-alcoholic refreshment
beverages consumed in Canada.
