Mio Energy Review
What You Should Know
Mio Energy is a diet supplement we found in the most interesting place – the juice aisle of our local grocery store. Mio Energy is a drink mix sold by Kraft Foods. There are generic forms of the drink mix popping up in major retailers like Walmart with the same ingredients for a cheaper price. What makes Mio Energy so interesting is the same thing that makes it dangerous. The energy drink mix comes in a tiny bottle that the dieter can use to flavor water. Any bottle of water is instantly turned into Black Cherry or Green Thunder energy drink. There is no definitive dosing system. The dieter can essentially add the entire bottle to one bottle of water and intake far too much caffeine in one sitting.
List of Ingredients
- Citric Acid
- Propylene Glycol
- Guarana Extract
- Ginseng Extract
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
Mio has been around for a small while, but the Mio Energy line is a newer addition. The ingredient list looks more like a weight loss supplement than a drink mix, but then again it is supposed to promote energy. We did not see a total caffeine amount listed on the product label so we searched the FAQs section. We found that each bottle contains 12 servings and each serving contains 60 mg of caffeine. Essentially, the dieter can consume 720 mg of caffeine in one bottle of water if they used the entire bottle of Mio Energy.
We love the taste of Mio and the review from users. The Mio Energy product is a fantastic addition, for adults, but there are a few things that concern us. The Mio bottles are all the same shape, so kids may not recognize the difference and use the Energy drink instead of a traditional Mio drink mix. There is no means of measuring so you just have to squeeze until you feel you’ve added enough. Our final problem is with the utter lack of information about how much of each ingredient is in the formula. The company openly states in the FAQs section that they will not share the formula with readers or consumers.
- Mio Energy can increase energy and metabolism.
- The drink mix tastes great.
- You can add Mio Energy to sodas, tea, juice, water and milk with ease.
- There is no way of measuring Mio Energy.
- The company will not reveal the formula for Mio Energy.
- Generic forms of the drink mix have a similar taste and cost less.
Mio Energy is not for kids though Mio does offer a drink mix that kids can use. With no means of measuring the Mio Energy, we suggest dieters choose a dedicated fat burner for weight loss and leave the Mio Energy on the shelf.
