We have global standards which we follow in every country to ensure our brands are marketed responsibly and never to children under 12. In Mexico and elsewhere, we offer low and no sugar options and a wide variety of pack sizes to help people choose the right drinks for them and their families. As a major food and drink manufacturer, we know there is more we can do to play our part in tackling obesity, so we continue to work to raise awareness
Being overweight or obese is a major risk factor for Type 2 diabetes. Eating and drinking too many calories, including from soft drinks, can contribute to weight gain, which in turn increases the risk of diabetes.
A balanced lifestyle is key to successful weight management. Like all food and drink, soft drinks with sugar can be consumed in moderation as long as people don’t consume them to excess.
For those who want to reduce their calorie and sugar
Here’s the list of ingredients in Coca-Cola:
Carbonated water – Approximately 90% of Coca-Cola is water. The carbonated part is purified carbon dioxide, which gives the drink its “bubbles” or “fizz”.
Sugar – Coca-Cola Classic’s sweet taste (and also some of its mouthfeel) comes from sugar. Coca-Cola Zero Sugar and Diet Coke are sugar free, while Coca-Cola Life has a blend of sugar and stevia plant extract, a sugar-free sweetener from natural
Because it’s impossible.
The taste of Coca-Cola has been often imitated but never replicated. Our secret formula for making Coca-Cola has remained a trade secret for 130 years.
Did you know? The formula for making Coca-Cola is the best-kept secret in the world of food and drinks.
Here’s how they differ:
Coca-Cola Classic – the original and refreshing great taste of Coca‑Cola
Coca-Cola Zero Sugar – tastes more like Coca-Cola Classic taste but with zero sugar and zero calories
Diet Coke – a lighter taste with no calories
Coca-Cola Life – the great Coca-Cola taste made from a blend of sugar and stevia plant extract sweetener, which reduces the sugar and calories by 45% compared to Coca-Cola Classic
The basic ingredients and process used to make Coca-Cola are the same in all countries, although people perceive taste in very different ways. It is possible for the same soft drink to vary slightly in taste due to other factors such as the temperature at which it is consumed, the foods with which it is consumed, or the conditions in which it is stored prior to consumption.

The basic structure and function of taste buds are the same for everyone, however some people have different chemical receptors to others, changing the way they taste food or drink. This may mean that some people enjoy the taste of Coca-Cola in different ways to one another. Coca-Cola now has other variants including Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke and Coca-Cola Life, all of which offer unique cola taste.

We think that it’s all to do with the science of bubble formation, believe it or not.
The surface of a Mentos mint appears to provide a highly efficient place for tiny bubbles to form (these places are known by the boffins as nucleation sites). When Mentos are dropped into Diet Coke, these bubbles form very rapidly. As a result, the carbonated part of the Diet Coke reacts explosively causing an eruption.

Coca-Cola Ireland today launched Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, the new and improved sugar free Coca-Cola. The new recipe brings Coca Cola Zero Sugar closer to the taste of original Coca-Cola Classic, but without sugar. The launch is being supported by a strong marketing campaign.
This is the latest in a number of actions taken by Coca-Cola Ireland to help people reduce their sugar consumption. It marks the next step in the Company’s strategy from offering,
The UK Government’s plan to impose a tax on soft drinks containing sugar made headlines after it was announced in the Budget in March. People are curious about what Coca-Cola Great Britain thinks of the proposal; I get asked about it a lot - at work and also at home with friends and family.
While we agree with the Government that obesity rates are too high and need to be reduced, we do not believe additional taxes are the solution. There is no reliable
