We promote natural and organic sources of caffeine and nutrition and ask consumers to educate themselves about what they are drinking. Steaz encourages all energy drink manufacturers to do the same with open and accurate product labeling.

Steaz, the innovation leading USDA Organic, Fair Trade Certified™ green-tea based beverage company, has smart energy drink options that contain healthy levels of naturally occurring plant based caffeine and added vitamins to stimulate the mind, body and soul. Steaz Energy provides a clean source of energy to consumers. Unlike other, non-organic energy drinks, Steaz contains nature’s most balanced stimulants and sustainably sourced ingredients such as guarana berries, green tea, rainforest grown yerba mate, and nutritionally enhanced further with acai.
Michael Hill of the Associated Press explains, “As energy drink sales soar like a caffeine-fueled rocket, more drinks are promoting organic ingredients, added juices, natural caffeine and something called “clean” energy” (http://bigstory.ap.org/article/energy-drinks-go-natural-market-buzzes-along, July 1, 2013, The Associated Press). Fortified with acai and a boost of B vitamins, Steaz Energy provides a natural “buzz” consumers can actually feel good about.
Recently, there has been purposed controversy amongst regulators about the caffeine levels in energy drinks. “The Food and Drug Administration in April said it would investigate the safety of caffeine added to snacks and gum and its effects on children and adolescents” says Hill (http://bigstory.ap.org/article/energy-drinks-go-natural-market-buzzes-along, July 1, 2013, The Associated Press)
Steaz accurately and voluntarily discloses its caffeine content on all Energy drink labels and ensures these levels are healthy and effective. “There is a broad range of caffeine levels and sources in everything caffeinated from chocolate, to coffee, to energy drinks,” explains Steaz co-founder Steven Kessler. “We promote natural and organic sources of caffeine and nutrition and ask consumers to educate themselves about what they are drinking. Steaz encourages all energy drink manufacturers to do the same with open and accurate product labeling.”
The Mayo Clinic suggests a moderate dose of caffeine (up to 300 milligrams) isn’t harmful for a healthy adult; caffeine is noted to increase alertness and the ability to concentrate. At 100 milligrams of naturally occurring caffeine per 12 ounce can, Steaz Energy is on the low end of the spectrum, especially when compared to 240 milligrams of caffeine in a 12 ounce coffee from the leading coffee chain or 128 milligrams in the same size unnatural energy drink with added caffeine.
