Steaz Organic Energy Drink – Berry Flavor
Summary: Tastes great and is fair trade, but not that big a jolt of energy!
They call it “organic fuel for the mind, body and soul.” I almost overlooked this at the store because the can was less than striking. But the design doesn’t reflect how good it tastes. (Update: image on the right is of the redesigned can)
As an energy drink, its kick is moderate. Each can (12 ounces = a cup and a half) has only 80 milligrams of caffeine, but it does contain other healthful ingredients — acai juice, guarana extract, yerba mate, Ceylon green tea, and Vitamin C. The sweetener is evaporated cane juice. The fact that it’s certified USDA organic and fair trade is impressive.
- Made with Fair Trade Certified Organic Ceylon Green Tea
- Guayaki Yerba Mate – nature’s most balanced stimulant
- Sambazon Acai – super fruit, high in antioxidants and vitamins
- Guarana – high in naturally occurring caffeine
No HFCS (high fructose corn syrup)
All Natural – Nothing Artificial.
Each can is supposed to be one and a half servings. At 90 calories per serving, that’s 135 calories per can.
