Safe daily intake level for caffeine, according to EFSA

20May, 2015

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has ruled that a daily intake of caffeine of up to 400mg does not raise any concerns for the safety of adult consumers.

EFSA also stated that single doses of caffeine up to 200mg in quantity fell within safe levels, as it launched a five-week public consultation on the findings. The body also plans to discuss the opinion with interested stakeholders at a meeting in March.

Further conclusions of EFSA’s scientific opinion claimed that it was “unlikely that caffeine interacts adversely with other constituents of ‘energy drinks’” such as taurine or D-glucorono-y-lactone; caffeine intakes of up to 200mg a day do not raise safety concerns for pregnant women; and daily intakes of 3mg per kilogram of body weight is considered a safe level for children between the ages of three and 18.

EFSA also conceded that doses of 100mg of caffeine may increase sleep latency and shorten sleeping time in some adults
