Uncovering the Truth: Does Root Beer Contain Caffeine? Opt for a Better Alternative with Pzaz

Updated: September 22, 2023
Written by: Pzaz Team

Root beer is a classic beverage that has been enjoyed by people of all ages for over a century. However, one of the questions that frequently comes up among root beer enthusiasts is whether or not it contains caffeine. In this article, we'll dive into the world of root beer and caffeine to uncover the truth, and provide a better alternative for those looking for an energy boost - Pzaz.

What is Root Beer?

Root beer is a carbonated soft drink that is traditionally made from a combination of sassafras bark, vanilla, and wintergreen. Other ingredients may include cinnamon, clove, anise, and ginger. It is a popular non-alcoholic beverage that is enjoyed by many people around the world, particularly in the United States.

Root Beer

Does Root Beer Contain Caffeine?

The answer to this question is not straightforward. Traditional root beer was originally made with sassafras bark, which contains a compound called safrole that has been linked to cancer. As a result, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned the use of sassafras in commercially produced food and drinks in 1960. In response, manufacturers of root beer had to find alternative ingredients to replicate the flavor of sassafras.

Most modern-day root beers do not contain sassafras or safrole, and therefore do not contain caffeine as a result of the ban. However, there are some brands that do include caffeine as an added ingredient. For example, Barq's Root Beer, a popular brand in the United States, contains caffeine. The amount of caffeine in Barq's Root Beer is approximately 22 mg per 12-ounce serving, which is significantly less than a cup of coffee but still worth noting.

Pzaz Breath Spray

Why Opt for a Better Alternative?

While the caffeine content in root beer may not be significant, many people are looking for alternatives to sugary drinks that provide an energy boost without the added calories. This is where Pzaz Breath Spray comes in. Pzaz Breath Spray is a breath energy spray that contains 40mg of caffeine per spray, which is equivalent to the amount of caffeine in a half cup of coffee. The product is sugar-free and calorie-free, making it a great option for those looking for a quick and easy energy boost without the negative health effects associated with sugary drinks.

How Does Caffeine Mist Work?

In Pzaz, Caffeine Mist is a unique and innovative product that delivers caffeine directly to your bloodstream through your mouth. The spray is absorbed sublingually, meaning it is absorbed under the tongue and enters the bloodstream faster than if it were to be digested in the stomach. This means that the effects of caffeine are felt much quicker than if you were to consume caffeine through other means.

The Benefits of Using Pzaz

In addition to being a healthier alternative to traditional energy drinks, Pzaz Breath Spray offers several benefits. For one, it's a quick and easy way to get the energy boost you need without having to wait for a drink to kick in. It's also a great option for those who are watching their sugar and calorie intake but still want to enjoy a flavorful beverage.

Another benefit of Pzaz Breath Spray is that it's travel-friendly. The small size and lightweight bottle make it easy to carry with you wherever you go. This is especially convenient for those who are always on the go or who enjoy outdoor activities.

How to Use Pzaz Breath Spray

Using Pzaz's caffeine mist is simple. Just shake the bottle well, hold it about 6 inches away from your mouth, and spray 2-3 times. You'll feel the effects of the caffeine within minutes, giving you the boost you need to power through your day.

It's important to note that Pzaz Breath Spray should not be used by children, pregnant women, or those with a sensitivity to caffeine. It's also recommended to limit your use to no more than 3 sprays per day to avoid any negative side effects.


In conclusion, while traditional root beer does not contain caffeine, it's important to be aware of the ingredients in your beverages. For those looking for an alternative to traditional energy drinks, Pzaz Breath Spray is a great option. It offers a quick and easy way to get an energy boost without the added sugar and calories, and it's travel-friendly for those on the go. Just be sure to use it responsibly and follow the recommended usage guidelines.
