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.
