Tests Reveal That Energy Drinks Contain Ingredient Extracted from Bull Urine

A recent study done by Longhorn Cattle Company, to test some of the top energy drink brands such as Red Bull, monster etc. have revealed that these drinks contain bull urine and semen.

Taurine is the ingredient that has been found in the drinks. Taurine is named after the Latin Taurus, which means bull. It was first isolated from ox bile in 1827 by Australian scientists Friedrich Tiedemann and Leopold Gmelon.

It is often called an amino acid, but it lacks a carboxyl group and  is not strictly an amino acid. Taurine is present in bulls livers, semen and urine. This gives a clue as to where the taurine used in energy drinks is gotten from.
