If you’re a consumer of Energy drinks, you’re lucky that you got a lot of options. Each brand has several flavors to facilitate its consumers with the product best matching their requirements. Here is presented a review of the peach edition of Redbull.
Redbull was founded in the year 1984 and since then the company has dominated the energy beverage industry without any breaks. Although it has not made any changes to its formulations since its beginning they have launched different versions of its original energy drink.
Redbull Editions have the same ingredients, calories, and serving size however they come with different flavors. Some of its popular editions are Blue, green, yellow, and peach editions.
Just like the original version, the Redbull peach edition is a performance enhancer. Also, it boosts your mental functions so you may get more focused and alert after drinking it. If I were to rate this energy drink I’ll rate it a 7 out of 10 ratings.
Let’s take a deeper look at the benefits of this energy drink. I’ll go over the ingredients, nutritional data, and other questions about the Redbull peach edition in my article.

Nutrition Facts of Redbull Peach Edition
|Nutrients||Amount per serving|
|Total carbohydrates||40 grams|
Caffeine in Redbull Peach Edition
Caffeine in Redbull peach edition contains 114 milligrams of caffeine per serving.
Caffeine is a chemical compound present in coffee, tea, and cocoa beans. Our body absorbs caffeine very quickly and its short-term effects are usually experienced between 5-30 minutes after having it.
Since caffeine is a stimulant. It stimulates the central nervous system, heart, muscles, and the centers that control blood pressure. It is also helpful for mental alertness i.e. headache, migraine, athletic performance, concentration, and physical energy.
Depending on the individual, these effects can last up to 12 hours. For that reason, caffeine becomes a core ingredient in many energy-boosting drinks. As with any other ingredient, caffeine has its pros and cons.
Caffeine intake should be limited to 400mg per day and no more than 200mg in a single dose. In the Redbull peach edition, the caffeine content is 80 mg/8.4 fl oz. (250ml). Consumption of 8.4 ounces can of Red Bull increases both concentration and memory by about 24%.
According to FDA the caffeine range from 40-250 mg per 8 fluid ounces in energy drinks is acceptable. 600 mg or more is considered too much. Redbull peach edition has just the perfect amount of caffeine to wake you up which is neither too excessive nor too less.
Sugar in Red bull peach edition
Redbull Peach edition contains 38 grams of sugar per 12 fl. oz can.
After water, sugar is present abundantly in energy drinks. Sugars play a vital role in the enhancement of flavors in energy drinks. These sugars give synergistic effects along with caffeine to boost your energy levels.
Not only this, sugar provides aid to their energy-boosting effects and is a main source of calories. The mix of sugar and caffeine in energy drinks is required to provide an optimal effect. Red Bull has 27 g of sugar (about 7 tsp) in every 8.4-ounce (250ml) can and 38 grams per 12 fl. oz can.
Anyone’s blood sugar will jump if they consume this much sugar. But people who have trouble controlling their blood sugar or who have diabetes should be very cautious with energy drinks. Sugar-sweetened beverages, like Redbull Peach, elevates blood sugar levels.
Added sugar has been linked to the following health concerns:
- Increased levels of oxidative stress
- Mood swings
- Poor dental health.
Even those who do not have diabetes should avoid energy drinks because of their sugar content. One study found that drinking one or two sugar-sweetened drinks per day raised the risk of type 2 diabetes by 26%.
Due to its high sugar content, I won’t recommend you to consume more than a single can of Red Bull in a day.
B vitamins in Redbull Peach Edition
Niacinamide, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12 are found in the Redbull peach edition.
They are present in energy drinks because they play an important role in energy metabolism. B vitamins in an energy drink break down carbohydrates into energy.
Vitamin B is a set of eight vitamins known as the vitamin B complex. Because they’re water-soluble, those that aren’t absorbed by your body are flushed out of your system, leaving no toxins behind.
Taurine in Redbull Peach edition
Every 250 ml can of Redbull contains 1000 milligrams of taurine.
Redbull contains Taurine a type of amino acid that perform metabolic activities in humans. It also helps get rid of muscle damage and fatigue.
Calories in Redbull peach edition
The total calories present in a single Redbull peach edition can is 160.
A healthy adult needs 2000 calories a day to balance his energy levels. Caloric intake largely depends on your weight, height, gender, age, and medical conditions.
160 calories are considered normal for energy drinks but, in some energy drinks, the calorie count is double per serving. If you are looking for a zero-calorie energy drink you can also opt for Redbull Zero.
If you’re trying to burn down your calories, the Redbull Peach edition might not benefit you as it is not nutrient-dense. Peach edition is energy-dense (means they have more calories than nutrients in them).
What does it tastes like?
Redbull peach edition tastes like one of those fruity gummies with a cloudy white color. It is similar to the Haribo Peach gummies with enough caffeine for your heart to pump faster and get a pleasant energy rush from it.
The look of this energy drink was surprisingly different from what I expected. When you think about peaches the orange-yellow color comes to mind. However, the Redbull peach edition has a cloudy white color which I think is related to the peach fuzz.

Is the Redbull peach edition good for you?
If you’re feeling lethargic and feel difficulty focusing while working late or if you want to skip the gym, the Redbull peach edition might help.
It gives you an instant source of energy that will boost your metabolism and keep you more focused. Redbull peach edition mentions the amount of caffeine present in their label which gives consumers a broader perspective on either this will fit in their daily energy intake or not.
Keep tabs on your caffeine intake because it is unsafe when consumed in higher doses (more than 400 milligrams a day). It can cause the following problems;
- Chest pain.
However, if you are planning to lose weight or are prediabetic then it is not good for you at all. You can opt for Redbull sugar-free version instead.
Can you drink it every day?
Yes, you can but I would suggest not doing it.
Healthy adults who choose to drink energy drinks should not exceed one can per day and do not make it a habit to consume energy drinks daily.
Drinking regularly or more than once a day increases the levels of caffeine and sugar simultaneously in your body which may cause negative effects on your body such as;
- Abnormal heart rate
Usually, young adults are more involved in the consumption of energy drinks. It is completely fine if you’re a workaholic person or an athlete or someone who does work out daily at the gym.
But if you have a sedentary lifestyle and have less physical activity then drinking Red Bull peach edition daily might not be good for your overall health.
As mentioned on the label the Red Bull peach edition is not recommended for children, pregnant or nursing women. Also, people with heart problems or sensitivities to caffeine should avoid it.
Here I want to appreciate Red Bull for clearly mentioning the recommendation information and making it easy for the consumers to identify and contemplate their buying decisions.
In my opinion, the Redbull peach edition is the best-tasting edition of Redbull so far. If you like gummies and fruity flavors then you should try it.
However, it is not meant to be taken daily. The number of sugars and calories in it may seem not much but if taken regularly can cause you many health concerns in the long run.
The taurine used in the Peach edition is completely vegan. Thus vegans can also enjoy this energy drink.
