G Fuel vs Rogue (Which One to Choose?)

G Fuel and Rogue have already proven their worth in their niches especially in the gaming industry. They are both effective in boosting your energy and enhancing your cognitive functions. But, which one is the better energy drink for you?

This article will help you answer that question.

In terms of formulation, G Fuel has a higher content in nutrients such as calories, carbohydrates, and sodium, than Rogue. You have more advantage in G Fuel if you’re into heavy physical and mental activity. While Rogue can be an even better option to support the specific weight loss diet plan you’re in.

There are more differences to consider before you decide which is a better energy drink brand for you. Is it G Fuel or Rogue? Continue reading,

Comparison of Nutritional Facts

Nutritional Facts of G Fuel (left) and Rogue (right).

Calories

A calorie refers to the number of energy that you get from the food and drink you consume.

For your body to function properly, you’ll be needing energy. Therefore, no matter how damaged calories’ reputation is in the weight loss world, you need them. At least, a certain safe amount.

Don’t worry, G Fuel and Rogue are both low in calories to even make you gain weight. Here’s a table of comparisons:

G Fuel (7g)Rogue (6.9g)
25 calories0-5 calories
Calorie count comparison of G Fuel and Rogue.

Evidently, Rogue Energy has a lower calorie count than G Fuel. Its calorie count varies on the flavors but is nonetheless lesser in volume.

If you’re on a low-calorie diet, Rogue is your best friend. Although Rogue isn’t advertised for weight loss, it surely won’t contribute to your weight gain so you can safely enjoy it during a low-calorie diet.

But if you’re going to have vigorous physical activity, in my opinion, G Fuel is a better choice. More calories mean more fuel to burn, ergo more energy.

Stay vigilant, though, because too much consumption of calories can lead to obesity and diabetes. It’s a relief that these health risks are reduced with G Fuel and most especially with Rogue.

Carbohydrates

Another source of energy is carbohydrates. Like calories, they are always present in the food that you eat and the beverages that you drink.

Excessive intake of carbs can also result in weight gain and cardiovascular diseases. Fortunately, G Fuel and Rogue contain small amounts of them.

If you think you’re getting enough daily carbs to supply from other food sources like pasta, bread, and rice, then Rogue sounds like the better choice because it won’t contribute any more carbs to help you not exceed your carbs daily recommended intake.

But, if you’ve been avoiding carbs all day, G Fuel’s 5g of carbohydrates shouldn’t hurt. After all, you still need it to fuel your body with energy.

Sugar

“Sugar is the sociopath of foods. It acts sweet but it’s really poison.”

Karen Salmansohn

I could not agree more with this quote from Karen Salmansohn, a known author of self-help books. Although sugar in itself isn’t necessarily harmful, its uses and abundance in a lot of food make it dangerous.

Overconsumption of sugar can cause weight gain, increased blood pressure, and of course diabetes. The saddest part is all of these are associated with a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.

Here’s a table to show you how much sugar you’re getting from G Fuel and Rogue:

Sugar comparison of G Fuel and Rogue.

Yes, that’s right. Both of these brands are sugar-free so you don’t have to worry about developing the mentioned diseases by drinking either G Fuel and Rogue every day.

Sodium

Sodium is a kind of electrolyte that plays a role in balancing the fluids in your body. It also supports your muscle contraction. Both G Fuel and Rogue have sodium in their formula.

Take a look at this table:

G Fuel (7g)Rogue (6.9g)
79mg70mg
Calorie count comparison of G Fuel and Rogue.

Which has better sodium content, G Fuel and Rogue? In my opinion, it shouldn’t matter since their numbers are very close to each other. What’s important is that the sodium content shouldn’t be excessive to the point that it will pose health risks.

According to the FDA’s website, an adult must limit their Sodium intake to 2,300mg per day.

Sodium is part of what retains water in your body throughout strenuous activities. With toe to toe content, both G Fuel and Sneak can do just enough of this without going over the daily limit.

Comparison of Caffeine

Caffeine is one of the most important components of an energy drink. Hundreds of studies have already noted caffeine to be an effective energy booster and a substance that can keep you awake and alert.

Caffeine in G Fuel (7g serving) Caffeine in Rogue (6.9 serving)
150mg175mg
Caffeine content comparison of G Fuel and Rogue.

Clearly, Rogue has higher caffeine content than G Fuel. This means Rogue has a greater and stronger kick in energy and alertness once consumed. This equates to higher performance, longer endurance, and intensified vigilance.

While all of these sounds like everything you want to achieve after consuming a serving of an energy drink, these aren’t always the results that you get.

If you have a low tolerance for caffeine, the higher the caffeine level, the higher your risks of experiencing side effects, or even caffeine overdose. So you must understand how sensitive your body is to caffeine and how it reacts to it before you decide which one to pick.

Comparison of Ingredients

G Fuel and Rogue have a lot of similarities in their ingredients. They have grouped their components into complexes to better emphasize each ingredient’s purpose in their respective formulation.

Both G Fuel and Rogue have Energy and Focus Complexes while only G Fuel has an Antioxidant Complex and only Rogue has a Recovery Complex.

Energy Complex Ingredients

As the name suggests, this group is focused on the ingredients that are solely geared towards providing you with energy.

You can find caffeine and taurine here. These two are a popular combo among energy drinks. A study shows that their synergy improves sports performance.

All ingredients are the same for both brands under the Energy Complex group, except only G Fuel has an aphrodisiac called Velvet Bean Seed Extract and only Rogue has an amino acid called Glycine.

These differences aren’t huge in number therefore the comparison is strongly toe-to-toe.

Focus Complex Ingredients

The ingredients found here promote better concentration and are directed towards your cognitive function.

This set of ingredients has a lot of differences but there’s one common ingredient in the Focus Complex of G Fuel and Rogue, and that’s the Bacopa ingredient, they may have different names but they’re very similar in effect.

Their ingredients are varying. For example, both the Toothed Clubmoss and N-Acetyl Tyrosine focus on brain chemicals, but the rest of the ingredients are different.

G Fuel contains more extracts, which are antioxidants meant to help fight neuron diseases (ex. aerial parts extract), whereas the ingredients in Rogue focuses on present neurological support.

G Fuel Antioxidant Complex Ingredients

These are the ingredients that help fight free radicals that damage your cells, causing you to develop certain types of health problems like cancer and heart diseases.

  • Cabbage Palm Berry Powder

Rogue Energy Recovery Complex Ingredients

This group supports your muscles and prevents fatigue. These are beneficial components especially when you’re always physically active.

Admittedly, these two complexes unique to only one of the brands are beneficial in their own ways. Added antioxidants are definitely good for you, as well as ingredients aimed for body recovery. In the comparison of these, it will all boil down to whichever benefit you find you want more.

Comparison of Other Ingredients

The ingredients under this group are food additives. They improve the texture, color, and shelf-life of a certain product.

Natural and Artificial Flavors Natural and Artificial Flavors
Silicon Dioxide Silicon Dioxide
Sucralose Sucralose
Maltodextrin Maltodextrin
Acesulfame Potassium
Malic Acid
Comparison of food additives in G Fuel and Rogue.

This table of comparison appears to have a lot of similarities too, except only G Fuel has Acesulfame Potassium and Malic Acid.

Malic Acid is meant to emphasize the taste of certain fruits in its formula. This would make sense seeing as it benefits G Fuel’s variety of fruit-derived antioxidants. It is not really a loss for Rogue who doesn’t focus on fruit-derived ingredients.

As for, acesulfame potassium, this is simply an artificial sweetener of which its absence won’t be noticeable. But more of this is below.

Artificial Sweeteners Used

G Fuel and Rogue are both sugar-free, instead, they use artificial substances to sweeten their energy drinks.

G Fuel Rogue
Sucralose Sucralose
Acesulfame Potassium
Comparison of artificial sweeteners used in G Fuel and Rogue.

G Fuel uses two types of artificial sweeteners: Sucralose and Acesulfame Potassium.

Rogue only makes use of sucralose.

Both ingredients are very effective in sweetening drinks, comparably up to 600 times sweeter than ordinary sugar. There really isn’t much of a difference here either.
