Frequently asked questions

Is Clutch an energy drink?

No, Clutch is a plant-powered drink for brains – NOT an energy drink. Clutch is not based on caffeine or any of the other common ingredients from energy drinks (i.e. caffeine, taurine, table sugar and/or artificial sweeteners like sucralose, aspartame and acesulfame K.). Clutch is a completely different concept based on active plant extracts, so the nutritional quality and effect is completely different.


We like to refer to a Clutch as having an acute long-term effect of up to 4-6 hours with no backlash effect contrary to many other substances you may find in vitamin drinks, energy drinks etc.


Is there really no caffeine in it? It contains green tea extract…

Right, but green tea extract can mean lots of different things. Same goes for all other plant extracts. We have taken great care in picking all the ingredients we use, and we found a brilliant green tea extract that has been purified from caffeine. However, you are absolutely right in assuming that when a product contains tea extract it ALMOST always contains caffeine.

Why did you choose to leave out the natural caffeine in a Clutch?

While having certain positive effects, caffeine also has many negative effects, so we didn’t feel it fit our concept. Disabling the adenosine receptors in your brain, so you don’t feel tired for a short while (despite the fact that your body thinks you are), is not really what our brain concept is about. We are focusing on promoting health wherever possible which is why we chose a long-term, holistic and more advanced approach to nutritional performance optimization.

What does it taste like?

While everyone has their own unique taste perception, there is a phrase that frequently pops up when we are sampling our products. People generally think is tastes like a sparkling and sweetened tea with flavours. To most people it tastes less sweet than many soft drinks available on the market today, which is due to the nature of our unique recipe, that is based on a completely different philosophy than trying to make a liquid dessert. So don’t expect a gummy bear drink.
