Found this......

(Red Bull) said coca leaf extracts were used worldwide as a natural flavoring, and that its own tests had found no traces of cocaine.

The illegal cocaine alkaloid - one of 10 found in coca and representing only 0.8% of the plant's chemical make-up - is chemically removed before use, as mandated by international anti-narcotics agencies.

"There is no scientific basis for this ban on Red Bull Cola because the levels of cocaine found are so small," Fritz Soergel, the head of the Institute for Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Research in Nuremberg, Bavaria, told Time magazine.

"And it's not even cocaine itself. According to the tests we carried out, it's a non-active degradation product with no effect on the body. If you start examining lots of other drinks and food so carefully, you'd find a lot of surprising things."

Red Bull cola tastes like poop. Just my.02

I like how the article plays up the fact that a decocainised coca leaf is used in the drink... as if Coca-Cola and Pepsi don't use the same exact leaf with the same exact process.
