Posted on 31/03/2015

A can of 250 ml of Hype Energy drinks contains 80 mg of caffeine, about the same as a cup of coffee.

Caffeine is a substance naturally found in certain plants. It is a central nervous system stimulant and a diuretic. It does not accumulate in the blood or stored in the body. It may be used for relief of fatigue or drowsiness.

Caffeine is widely consumed and is found naturally in the leaves, seeds and fruits of more than 60 plants, including tea leaves, cola nuts, coffee and cocoa beans.

It is also found in processed foods:

  • Regular Coffee: 65-120 mg per cup 
  • Black Tea: 14-60 mg per cup 
  • Dark Chocolate: 18-123 mg in a 100 g bar 
  • Most Colas: (unless labeled "caffeine"): 40-60 mg per cup 
  • Cocoa beverages: 5-35 mg per cup 
  • Energy Drinks: 40-100 mg per serving

In the case of Hype Energy Drinks, each 250ml can contains 80mg of caffeine which is, approximately, as much caffeine as a cup of coffee or even less depending on the size of the cup or the type of coffee.
