 Head Honcho of Monster Agrees to Put List of Nutrition Facts on Labels of Energy Drinks

The head honcho of Monster has communicate its affirmative stance of enabling the list of "Nutrition Facts" rather than "Supplement Facts" on the labels of their cans of energy drinks to avoid any confusion to consumers.

In the recent past, there has been extreme scrutiny on energy drinks, owing to their caffeine levels. There have been requests to the FDA to verify caffeine levels in energy drinks. Consumers may also be confused regarding the labeling of the drinks.

A study conducted by Consumer Reports brought out the problems consumers face in understanding labels. When researchers verified caffeine contents in 16 energy drinks - they found differences in the amounts of caffeine mentioned in the labels and the actual contents in the drink.

"Consumer and scientific groups have for years urged the Food and Drug Administration to make companies disclose caffeine levels, but the agency says it lacks the authority," the report said.
