Energy food drinks are carbonated drinks that contain large amounts of caffeine and sugar with additional ingredients, such as taurine, amino acids, vitamins and herbal stimulants as guarana. Their popularity among people especially adolescents continues to grow. The success of energy drink is related to their reputation of enhancing physical performances, driving ability when tired, cognitive functions, mental concentration level and reduced the reaction time. The expanded usage of energy food drinks set some problems between producers and consumers. The problems concern quality control questions, limitation of doses of biologically active caffeine and taurine, compatibility of ingredients, side effects. The present literature review analyses and generalized analytical approaches and methods in quality control procedures, their applications, restrictions and priorities.
