A large variety of new caffeinated beverage products have entered the market in recent years, including new types of energy drinks, cold brew and ready-to-drink specialty coffees and teas, and caffeinated waters and sports drinks. With shifts towards remote work and learning, online food and grocery ordering, and rapid pickup and delivery options for consumers, an updated evaluation of beverage consumption patterns and caffeine intakes in the U.S. population is warranted. The study will provide a current perspective on caffeinated beverage consumption patterns and caffeine intakes from a nationally representative sample of the U.S. population.
