Why do some flavors of CLIF SHOT Energy Gel have caffeine?

Caffeine is an effective performance-enhancing ingredient. It gives athletes a boost in enhancing mental alertness. We use green tea extract, a source of caffeine, and have a special label on the packages of those flavors so you can easily tell that they contain added caffeine.

CLIF SHOT Energy Gel offers a variety of caffeine options (three levels – 25, 50, 100mg) so athletes can customize their caffeine consumption. Our flavors containing caffeine are Citrus (25mg), Strawberry (25mg), Mocha (50mg), Double Expresso (100mg) and Chocolate Cherry (100mg). Caffeinated flavors of CLIF SHOT Energy Gel are not intended for individuals under 18 years of age, pregnant or nursing women, or for those sensitive to caffeine. We also offer three flavors with no caffeine: Boston Cream Pie, Chocolate, Razz and Vanilla Flavor.
