This chart does not include energy shots as they are almost always sugar free anyway.

Also, several natural sugar free energy drinks are beginning to appear in the marketplace. These generally use stevia or sugar alcohols and some are included in the list below.

monster-zero-ultra-energy-drinkThe diet beverage market has been growing. In fact, last year Diet Coke and Coke Zero both found their way into the top ten soda’s according to sales.

The same is true with diet energy drinks since more and more consumers are becoming aware of the dangers of sugar filled beverages.

As you see above, most sugar free energy drinks use the standard artificial sweeteners with the exception being Guru who is marketing some natural low calorie sweeteners. Sucralose a.k.a. “Splenda” has been getting some bad press lately, so who knows if that will cause other companies to go the more natural route as well if consumers begin shunning sucralose the way they did aspartame and saccharin which were previously used in sugar free energy drinks.

Stevia based sugar free drinks are also becoming more popular. This natural sugar is being marketed as a better alternative to artificial sweeteners.

Time will tell if the trend eventually filters into big brands like Monster and Rockstar.

    I like that you list the sweeteners. I’m the kind of guy who doesn’t eat or drink refined sugars or artificial sweeteners and it’s really helpful to have a list like this. Way to go!

    You forgot the whole Xyience Xenergy line.

  • Dr. Spaceman

    You also forgot Redline, and Spike Shooter, the King of all sugar free drinks

  • hellzenvy

    You left out Fixx, unless they went out of business then you didnt forget anything and Fixx will always be king in my book for Sugar free energy azz kicking.

    Hey thanks for the great suggestions, they were added except for Fixx as they only make shots now.

  • nikitas

    What about Bawls Exxtra?

    As someone who is allergic to sweeteners, I really appreciate you making this list. Now I know the only sugar free energy drink I can handle will be this Guru Lite. Although I’ve never seen that sold anywhere.

  • X-MAN

    The thing is… Artificial sugar is a tumor causing drug. The fact that it even might be slightly better than real sugar (not white processed crap but RAW sugar) is that IT IS NOT BETTER, IT IS WORSE. IT IS POISON. It should have a DO NOT CONSUME sticker on it… Not that this would actually stop you from poisoning yourselves I mean who the f*** drinks coke and knowing full well that it is not good for you. Well look it up and don’t get referance from sites with .org or .gov or whatever… Man its a big scam to make you sick to make you go to the doctor and pay money and then go to work to get more money and then going to get supplies and having nothing all the time because everyone is in some kind of debt… F*** BIG INCORPERATIONS! DON’T BUY THEIR S***!

    what about alcohoic drinks??

  • http://www.caffeineinformer.com ted

    We don’t cover alcoholic drinks on this site, but a good sit to check is http://www.drinkaware.co.uk/tips-and-tools/drink-diary/

  • bob

    Sandy. The Alcoholic energy drinks don’t have to list calories or sugar. I have yet to see one that does but from my research I think they have a crap load of sugar and calories.

  • Rachael

    I cannot believe that poison is still being sold to the public!! please please think about what you are eating and drinking. Aspartame kills!! It kills braincells and is linked to many illnesses. The more you support any buy these products the more sugar-free drinks will be put on our shelves. Most Children’s drinks now contain aspartame :( don’t you people realise what you are doing??? A childs brain is not fully developed and giving your child drinks containg sweeteners will infact kill there brain cells, at such an early age this can be life threatening! As for us adults the same goes! think about it! Aspartame kills!!!

  • TN

    Could several doctors please advise something about these energy drinks. My son loves to drink these things -thinks that they are helping him. I think that they are all garbage. Please, are these drinks OK or are they also have the tendencies to kill us?

  • b-grizzled

    can sum put sum good links up about the dangers of these chemicals. maybe an updated list of ‘natural’ energy drinks.
    also is the monster low carb off the market, in adelaide I’ve noticed it has almost disappeared…

  • D

    Monster Absolutely Zero has Sucralose. Upon finding this page I thought I might have misread the label but I just went and checked the ingredients online. It’s in there.

    I wish they would have chosen to make Absolute Zero without it. Why bother with another diet version that uses Erythritol only to feature sucralose yet again. The market for sucralose avoidance is big and Absolute Zero misses the point.

    You should add Blue Sky Blue Energy free to the list. It’s mostly natural and it has ingredients which are most similar to commercial energy drinks. I like it a lot but it’s overpriced ($2.69 per 16 ounce can at Whole Foods).

  • tommy

    i like to drink a single 8 or 12 once redbull everyday helpa give me wake up faster give me energy go gym i think anything can be bad for you if you take to much of it but if you watch how much your drinking than i think they are safe i still think the ones with all calroies in them are wose for your body and heath cause anyone to gain some weight after awhile but if you watch how much of it you take than it shouldn’t!

  • tommy

    forgive my typing have the spell check thing on

  • Kelsey

    Rockstar’s might be terrible for me but they are the only way I’m surviving college right now.

  • Matt

    Personally I love the rockstar’s – especailly the green ones, very strong clean buzz. Got sick of them few year’s back in Ibiza though ;-)
