The concentration of caffeine in some branded energy drinks such as wild dragon Power Horse, Climax, Malta Guinness, Red Bull and Blue Energy were determine using high performance liquid chromatography hitachi elite lachrome auto sample HPLCL-2200 model in a water spherisorb C18, 5 mu ODs 2 column with a flow rate of 1.0 ml/min in 50:50 methanol/ distilled water as mobile phase with a view to ascertain compliance to standards. The result showed varied concentration of caffeine in the range 23.4?0.4 mg/ml in these energy drinks always higher than the branded concentration in a deviation range of ?0.2. This indicates that enforcement of quality standards in product branding is weak and needs to be enforced as excess consumption has been reported to have health implications.
