Rockstar Energy Drink

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
does anyone know if rockstar drinks are vegan? they have taurine and i'm not sure if it is synthetic like Red Bull claims or if it is from animals.

Actually I wondered the same thing. No answer, just another curious mind.

Here's from their website

Who knows where that taurine comes from.

Oh bugger, you're all useless. I'll contact the company.

This doesn't answer your question, but I contacted the company in charge of Monster Energy Drink, and they confirmed that it was vegan.

Charity~ What did they say?

I don't trust when a company says it's vegan. Companies have been known to call things like gelatin and honey vegan so I'm suspicious of a company saying "it's vegan".

I didn't just ask "is it vegan?" I don't assume customer service reps know what that means.



I asked if specific amino acids were synthetic or animal derived. And I'm still waiting on the answer.

The artificial flavors are enough to keep me away from this product, vegan or not.

Ouch! If anything, I'd applaud his endevous in avoiding the unknown.

I wish I could..."artificial flavours" always give me the willes.....but they make my junk food taste good so..

FalafelsRule's countless posts about his dietary purity suggest a skittishness akin to self-satisfied supremacy. The vibe I'm getting is when the Princess won't eat off the plates the servants have touched.



Flame me. Whatever.



I'm sick of people posting useless comments such as these. We come to these boards with questions about the vegan status of foods. And when others comment with "yea but that product contains preservatives/hydrogenated oils/artificial colorings that are bad because x,y,z & I certainly would not be caught dead eating such a thing" it does NOTHING to further the discussion.



It's just off-topic banter about your own personal purity.



We're not here to criticize people for eating junk or convenience foods. We're here to assist each other in the ease of a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Agreed!

I agree with Charity, even though I understand that when people feel strongly about certain things, it can be difficult not to say their opinions.



That was too funny though.

They usually don't know.

It looks like no one ever answered the OP's question satisfactorily, so here it is (from http://www.rockstar69.com/productFAQ.php):

Rockstar is 100% Vegetarian and Vegan. The Taurine contained in Rockstar is synthetic and not derived from animals.



(Yes, I realize that this thread is 2 years old...)

You still shouldn't drink it cause it's full of artificial flavors !

Sorry I couldn't resist!
post #21 of 28
But it can give you quite the little buzz!

pretty much all commercial amino acids are synthetic plant derived made in a lab... in energy drinks, and it sports stuff such as eaa's and bcaa's

Weird that it's here. I just saw some guys in a white pickup throw about a dozen such cans (could have been Amp, though) out of their window going about 30 mph over the speed limit, then almost wreck having not seen some tire tread in the road, then pull off between some cones. Rockstar.
post #26 of 28
yea its vegan, rockstar, redbull and monster are all vegan
post #27 of 28
But I only drink Full Throttle! Maybe the ones that taste good aren't vegan, just the carbonated cough syrups



No, they probably are, at least I hope they are ...

I wouldn't buy rockstar, vegan or not. This is why:

I'll spend my money elsewhere, thanks.
