According to Businessweek, it’s not just one product that’s a problem, but whether the huge number of food items containing caffeine could present too much exposure for the average adult. Right now, federal guidelines suggest that adults keep their caffeine intake below 300mg a day—about three cups of coffee (or cans of Red Bull)—and teens stay below 100mg a day. But with caffeine cropping up pretty much everywhere, it might just be time to consider caffeine as the drug it is.
Take a peek at the off-the-wall products that contain caffeine, and then tell us if you think it should be regulated like tobacco and alcohol currently are.
ARMA Energy Snx
What’s a hungry girl to do after school but…toss back some
caffeine-laced trail mix, dried fruit, granola or kettle chips? That’s
what ARMA has to offer with their product line that is also infused with
B-vitamins and taurine.
Buzz Strong Bakery’s Real Coffee Cookies
Calling all chocoholics—this one’s for you: Buzz Strong Bakery has
staked it’s reputation on baking up quality cookies that just so happen
to be loaded with the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Er,
forget the post-lunch slump, huh?
Whatever your feelings about dried beef, you’ve gotta admit that the
name’s pretty darn clever. These snacks contain guarana, which, as a
seed, contains twice as much caffeine as a coffee bean. Half a container
of Perky Jerky will give ya about 150mg of caffeine.
They might looks like Pixie Sticks, but this ThinkGeek exclusive
product gives you a test tube-worth of sour powdered goodness that’s
infused with 200mg of caffeine. Wowza!
Have you ever looked at your handful of nuts and thought, gee, I wish
I could get a bit more of an energy buzz from these babies? Well,
someone evidently did, because one package of these special sunflower
seeds offers up 140mg of caffeine. Um, yum?
No need to hit up Starbucks for your morning jolt of caffeine. These
babies—which are preservative free, we feel the need to note—contain
200mg of caffeine per serving. Pair ‘em with the brand’s caffeinated
syrup for an extra burst of energy.
This “artesian water” comes from an underground aquifer and offers up
a shot of caffeine derived from coffee beans. The bottled water comes
in three sizes; the smallest at 60mg contains as much caffeine as a cup
of coffee or a 12-oz soft drink.
