Energy Drinks With No High-Fructose Corn Syrup

By Amber Canaan

Energy drinks are a popular beverage, providing college students, night-shift workers and busy parents with a needed boost. Their ingredients generally include caffeine and some type of sweetener. That sweetener is often high-fructose corn syrup. There is some controversy regarding the safety of high-fructose corn syrup. You can find varieties that don't have any high-fructose corn syrup if you're trying to avoid it.


Guru Beverage Co. of New York offers a line of organic energy drinks. They are sweetened with pure sugar-cane juice and do not contain any preservatives, artificial caffeine, artificial vitamins or taurine. Guru also offers a light version with stevia, a natural sweetener. Varieties include original, light, Guru 2.0 and Guru 2.0 Lite.

Pure Bio

Pure Bio Products USA offers a line of natural energy drinks sweetened with unrefined cane sugar. The cane sugar adds minerals including iron, calcium and magnesium. Pure Bio drinks are also USDA-certified organic and contain 10 percent fruit juice for additional sweetness and nutrient value.
