A recent study by Longhorn Cattle Company tested the most popular energy drinks like Red Bull and Monster. What they found in them will shock you: your favorite energy drinks contain bull semen!

The energy drink industry has come under a lot of fire about this recently. Their products contain Taurine, or Taurus in Latin, which means bull. This substance was isolated from ox bile in 1827 by Friedrich Tiedemann and Leopold Gmelon, prominent Austrian scientists. Taurine is perceived as an amino acid, but is not an amino acid as it doesn’t contain a carboxyl group. It is present in bull liver, semen and urine, so people must wonder where does the taurine in energy drink come from.


The truth is hard to swallow, but the taurine in energy drinks is a byproduct of bull testicles and is not suitable for vegetarians. The natural substance is normally found in breastmilk and bull bile. The video shows how it is extracted from the bulls, filmed by an employee of a company that supplies the substance to many energy drink companies. It has since leaked online, releasing a top kept secret to the public. If you’re wondering what happened to the employee, he was fired for violating the company policy.
