Sugar in Coca Cola Life

Totally shocked. I changed from pepsi max to Coca Life because I'm trying to stick to natural sweetners and I just got told that it has 6 teaspoons of sugar in a can

I checked and they're right
http://www.coca-cola.co.uk/faq/ingre...cola-life.html

I thought it was diet? It's marketed as a stevia instead of sugar!

Wonder how many others have got caught out with this

Wow that's a lot! I always assumed it was low carb/sugar!

Coca‑Cola = 42 calories per 100ml
Coca‑Cola Life = 27 calories per 100ml
Coca‑Cola Zero = Less than 1 calorie per 100ml
Diet Coke = Less than 1 calorie per 100ml

They state:
Coca‑Cola Life is made with a blend of sugar and stevia leaf extract1, and contains a third less sugar and a third fewer calories than Coca‑Cola2.

So really they are only saying the sugar is less than the full sugar coca-cola.

It's a good example why to read labels I guess. I assumed on adverts etc that it would have been lower sugar than that also!

I don't understand why they can't make a good tasting cola just using Stevia.

Well, Coca‑Cola Life is made with a blend of sugar and stevia leaf extract1, and contains a third less sugar and a third fewer calories than Coca‑Cola2.
