The phosphoric acid in Pepsi gives the soda a more pronounced flavor and delays the growth of bacteria and mold. Citric acid is a natural preservative that also enhances the flavor of Pepsi and balances the sweetness in the soft drink. Gatorade contains sugar, dextrose, citric acid, natural flavors, salt, sodium citrate, monopotassium sulfate, gum arabic and glycerol ester of rosin. Gatorade also contains food coloring depending on the flavor of the beverage. Amp energy drink is available in regular and sugar-free varieties. Ingredients in the energy beverage include caffeine and a variety of B vitamins such as pantothenic acid (B6), vitamin B12 and riboflavin.
