Workshop on Potential Health Hazards Associated with Consumption of Caffeine
in Food and Dietary Supplements

This two day workshop, held by the Institute of Medicine on August 5 and 6, 2013, discussed potential health impacts stemming from the consumption of caffeine in dietary supplements and conventional foods, alone or in combination with other substances found in products commonly referred to as “energy products.” The workshop examined cardiovascular and central nervous system (CNS) effects and other important health hazards of caffeine that may arise in at-risk populations consuming varied amounts of caffeine.

An individually-authored summary of the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur and will be made available later this year.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. A description of the workshop, its agenda, accompanying documents, and videos of the meeting can be found on the Web site of the Institute of Medicine.
