12 functional drinks test: Red Bull performance is average, not recommended Zhongwo, Magic Claw, Youzhen

Whenever they exercise, drive, stay up late, and work overtime, many people choose to drink the effects of anti -fatigue and other functions as a functional drink, wake up the brain to reflect the energy.

However, there are many functional beverage brands and the same advertising words. Which one is more effective and healthy? This is the issue that consumers are particularly concerned.

In October 2020, the “Consumer Report” sent a inspection of the mainstream of the market to the authoritative third -party testing agency to choose the mainstream of the market to choose the best.

Test results

1. 12 beverages refreshing the content of taurine is very different, ranging from 40mg/100ml ~ 1000mg/100ml, of which

War horse

and

Full day

All are 40mg/100ml,

Health care

Up to 1000mg/100ml.

2. From the perspective of the total sugar content of each bottle,

Dongpeng, Red Bull, Youzhen, Lehu, Zhongwo

Five of the 5 models reaches more than 30g/bottle, drinking a bottle will exceed the reasonable “control line” of 25G recommended by the dietary guide.

3. In addition,

Germ

The sugar content reaches 66.6g/bottle. Consumers drink a bottle daily. The ingested sugar will exceed the daily maximum limit (50g) recommended by the dietary guide.

4. In terms of subjective evaluation,

Dongpeng

The taste and smell are good. The comprehensive score reaches 8.1, which is the most popular volunteer;

Health care, black 、

The taste and smell are evaluated as “weird”, and the comprehensive score is backward, with only 3.7 and 4.3, respectively.

5.

Claw

At the same time, sodium benzoate and potassium pear acid were detected;

Leopard Fairness, Lehu

Wait for 7 models to add artificial pigments;

Black, Youzhen

Waiting for 5 models contains sweeteners. Although the amount of detection meets the standards, in view of the purpose of drinking functional beverages to supplement energy and resist fatigue, this magazine recommends that consumers try to choose drinks with less food additives as much as possible.

6. Comprehensive evaluation results show,

Vitamin -type energy beverage CCR score reached 7.9, which performed better;

Physical energy vitamin drink,

Excellent

Taurine -type vitamin enhanced flavor drinks and

3 CCR scores such as energy -flavored drinks ranked back, with 6.1, 6.5 and 6.7, respectively.

The highest difference between anti -fatigue components is 25 times

At present, there are many anti -fatigue food additives, and one of the more common components is taurine. Telonic acid is also known as beef gallic acid. It is an essential non -protein amino acid for the human body. About 70%of taurine in the human body needs to be taken from food.

It is understood that a large amount of free radicals will be generated in the exercise process. Free radicals will attack various tissues and cause physical fatigue. Telonic acid has a good impact on the metabolism of free radicals in the human body, which shows the role of resistance to exercise fatigue.

The “GB14880-2012 Food Nutrition Reinforcement Standards” stipulates that the amount of taurine in functional beverages is ≤60mg/100g (ML), but health food beverages are not subject to this restriction.

The test results show that the taurine content of 12 functional beverages is between 40mg/ml ~ 1000mg/ml, of which

Both war horses and Japan are 40mg/100ml

,,

Health care is as high as 1000mg/100ml

Their gap is as high as 25 times.

It is worth noting that because the health care is a health food, its taurine content is higher than that of the “GB14880-2012 Food Nutritional Repertory Standards”, which is normal.

Taking the health care as an example, the taurine that can be intake per bottle (150ml) is 1500mg. Is there an excess risk for consumers?

Medical data shows that for adults, the daily maximum intake of taurine is 6000mg (6g), so

The tunnels tested at each bottle (tank) provided by the 12 functional beverages are within the scope of safety.

“So far, no adverse reactions caused by taking taurine due to taking taurine, but if anyone has an allergic reaction to taurine, it is recommended not to take it, so as not to cause discomfort.” Some experts said that some experts said Essence

7 total sugar, including Zhongwo, exceeded the diet “control line”

“Functional drinks add sugar, in addition to providing energy, there is also a taste problem. In order to reconcile the mouth, a certain amount of sugar will be used.” Some food experts said.

However, in addition to overweight and obesity, the intake of too much sugar may increase the risk of chronic diseases such as dental caries, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.

With reference to the definition of “high sugar food” in the Hong Kong Food Safety Center in China, the sugar content of more than 15g per 100g (ml) food is called “high sugar”.

According to the suggestion of the “Chinese Resident Dietary Guide (2013 Edition)”, controlling the intake of sugar is controlled, the daily intake does not exceed 50g, it is best to control below about 25g.

The test found that the total sugar content of 12 functional beverages is 0g/100ml ~ 15.2g/100ml, of which

Aliens, Black Kitza, Renji, Magic Claw, Youzhen

The total sugar content is below 10g/100ml,

alien

It is 0g/100ml (not detected).

It is worth noting,

The total sugar content is as high as 15.2g/100ml, which is the highest of all functional beverages, and at the same time meets the standard of “high sugar food”.

However, because consumers’ consumer consumer is basically standard, the sugar that can be intake in 12 functional drinks is different.

The total sugar available for 12 functional beverages is 12.7g/bottle ~ 66.6g/bottle, of which

Waiting for 5 models to reach more than 30g/bottle, drinking a bottle will exceed a reasonable “control line” of 25G per day.

In addition, Zhongwo has a sugar content of 66.6g/bottle. Drinking a bottle will exceed the daily maximum limit (50g) recommended by the “Chinese Resident Dietary Guide (2013 Edition)”.

Strive for health taste “unpopular”

The taste of functional beverages is mainly adjusted by adding sugar and sweeteners to cover up the bitter taste of B vitamins in it; the purpose of adding flavors is to prepare a soft smell to avoid irritation.

Among the 12 functional drinks for this inspection, all the flavors such as sugar and flavors were added. In order to evaluate their tastes, this magazine specially invited 10 volunteers to conduct subjective blind evaluation experiments.

The evaluation dimension of subjective blind evaluation experiments mainly includes two indicators of taste and smell. The single scores are 5 points. The total score of the two indicators is a comprehensive score of the sample, with a full score of 10 points.

experiment result shows,

The taste and smell are good, respectively 4.0 and 4.1, respectively, and the comprehensive score reaches 8.1. It belongs to the level of “very much” and is the most popular volunteer.

Some volunteers evaluate Dongpeng with a faint fruity aroma and healthy flavor, and the taste is slightly sweeter, but the overall sweet and sour feeling is still more coordinated.

Ranzan, Red Bull, Youzhen, War Horse, Leopard Fitzi, China Wo, Vitality Forest

The taste and odor scores are above 3.0, and the comprehensive scores are 7.8, 7.2, 7.1, 6.8, 6.7, 6.4, and 6.3, which are all levels of “favorite”.

Lehu, magic claws

Black

Both taste and odor performance, comprehensive scores are 5.7, 5.3, and 4.3, which belong to the level of “general favorite”.

Some volunteers believe that Lehu has a flavor and delicate taste and the taste is sweeter; the smell of the magic claws is pungent, not real, and the entrance is acidic; black ore has wind oil and fine taste, pungent, and ginseng flavor at the entrance, and the aftertaste is bitter.

The taste and odor scores are only 1.6 and 2.1, respectively, and the comprehensive score is only 3.7, which belongs to the level of “don’t like”. Most volunteers spit out the strong potion, sour and bitter taste, and it is difficult to say.

2 kinds of preservatives detected by magic claws

“GB2760-2014 Food Additives Use Standard” stipulates that the limited use of sodium benzoate in special use drinks and flavor drinks is ≤0.2g/kg and ≤1.0g/kg; potassium peardate in special use drinks and flavor beverages The limited edition is 0.5g/kg.

12款功能饮料测试:红牛表现一般,不推荐中沃、魔爪、优珍

The test results found,

Aliens, War Horse, Zhongwo, Youzhen, Red Bull, Devil Plaw, Health Care, Dongpeng

Wait for 9 models to detect sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate, and the content is 0.09g/kg ~ 0.3g/kg, of which

From the perspective of preservative additions and types, the detection results of the above 9 functional drinks meet the provisions of the “GB2760-2014 Food Additives”.

However, there are some controversy about the safety of sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate. It is understood that the biological toxicity of sodium benzoate is greater than that of potassium sorbate, so sodium benzoate cannot be used in stricter green food standards.

This test found that the war horse, Red Bull, Dongpeng, and Black Kurite added sodium benzoate, and the potassium pear acid is added with the Chinese, Youzhen and Lili health care.

7 models such as Lehu and Leopard Faqi detected artificial pigments

Public information shows that synthetic pigment refers to the organic pigment made by artificial chemical synthesis, mainly based on aniline separated from coal tar.

From the perspective of industry data and functional beverages, the two artificial pigments of lemon yellow and temptation red are very common. However, their additions cannot play a function of increasing food nutrition. Therefore, the lower the content, the better.

“GB2760-2014 Food Additives Use Standards” stipulates that the limited edition of lemon yellow and tempting red in special use drinks and flavor drinks is ≤0.1g/kg.

The test results show,

War Horse, Zhongwo, Lehu, Youzhen, Red Bull, Leopard, Devil

The 7 models were detected by artificial pigment lemon yellow, and the content was 0.0091g/kg ~ 0.025g/kg, which complied with the provisions of the “GB2760-2014 Food Additives”.

but,

War Horse, Zhongwo, Lehu, Youzhen, Leopard’s Fighting

12款功能饮料测试:红牛表现一般,不推荐中沃、魔爪、优珍

Waiting for the five models to be nominated in the ingredient table, the temptation red pigment is not detected.

The technicians responsible for this test said that it may be because the temptation in these beverages is a small amount of small amounts, which is lower than the detection limit of methods and instruments. Therefore, the above situation occurs.

For health care, day full, Dongpeng, black and aliens

The above five functional drinks are not added with the above -mentioned artificial pigment.

This magazine believes that although the addition of artificial pigments can make the appearance of the beverage look more vivid and seductive, it seems not necessary to add artificial pigment from the perspective of health and nutrition. It is recommended that consumers choose to choose without adding or less added Pigment drinks.

5 types of monster claws, day -to -day full detection sweeteners

Among foods such as beverages, the most commonly used artificial sweeteners are Ansai Mi and trichlorotonose, because they have high sweetness, no heat and no dental caries, so they are widely added.

However, too much sweetener still has health risks. “If you eat too much sweetener for a long time, you will bring a certain liver and nervous system harm to the body.” Some experts have told this magazine.

The “GB2760-2014 Food Additives Use Standards” stipulates that the use limited editions of Ansisi and tricanlose sucrose in functional beverages are ≤0.3g/kg and ≤0.25g/kg, respectively.

Wait for 2 models to detect Anti Mi, and the content is 0.028g/kg and 0.12g/kg;

Magic claws, full sun, black 日

The 3 models were detected, and the content was 0.0531g/kg ~ 0.137g/kg.

Judging from the above detection results, the additions of Ansisi or trichlorite in the five functional beverages meet the provisions of the “GB2760-2014 Food Additives Use Standard”.

However, some nutrition researchers believe that in fact, sweeteners are fooling our brains and digestive systems. Its sweetness makes the human body feel foods containing sugar, but the blood sugar does not rise but still decreases. The human body will feel insufficient sugar, which will enhance appetite reflectively. The final result may be to promote the occurrence of obesity.

In 2019, a report from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) prompts that people who often use artificial sweeteners will also increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, and the increase is similar to those who directly drink sweet drinks.
