Health Canada is committed to the health and safety of Canadians and is taking seriously the concerns that have been expressed regarding caffeinated energy drinks, particularly their use by young people.
An independent Expert Advisory Panel on Caffeinated Energy Drinks (the Panel) was convened in Fall 2010 to review scientific literature, data and adverse reaction reports received by the department to date associated with the consumption of caffeinated energy drinks. The selection of the Panel members included consideration of previous or current experience with Health Canada advisory bodies, security clearance, affiliations and interests, and availability to participate in a one-day meeting in Ottawa in the timeframe identified by Health Canada. The Panel has submitted its report to Health Canada. The opinions expressed in its report are those of the Panel.
The independent Panel's advice was considered along with all other information gathered by Health Canada.
