Harvey Pough for helping us plan out the project and for making this project possible. Also, thank you Dr. Michael Osier for assisting us the laboratory and thank you to the teaching assistants for their help with the experiment. l All of the tested high-energy foods had much higher carbohydrate concentrations compared to protein concentrations with no product containing more than 5mg/g or 1% of a person’s daily value of protein. l Every substance tested had significantly more carbohydrates than protein, usually 100mg/g or more, showing that all of the tested substances relied much more on carbohydrates than protein to induce their advertised effect. l Energy (protein) bars had a more balanced ratio of protein to carbohydrate, but they did not contain a significant amount of either substance. l Two of the three energy drinks tested had no protein at all and the original formula drinks had high carbohydrate concentrations. Red Bull had the highest concentration of carbohydrates, 4155mg/ ml, which is over 300% of a person’s daily recommended value. l The cookie, which served as a control, had a better balance of protein and carbohydrate than the energy drinks, but a worse balance than the energy bars. l
