Coke & Pepsi Racing To Make HEALTHY Soda Drink!!!
It is no secret that the world is becoming more and more health conscious nowadays.
A big culprit to obesity in many parts of the world, are sodas. The Associate Press reported that Coke and Pepsi are hard at work trying to come up with a more healthy soft drink. Here is what AP and Baller Status reported...
|With the surgence of healthy beverages***tting the market, Coke and Pepsi are in a race for a new drink with no calories, no artificial sweeteners and no funny aftertaste.
According to the Associated Press, the two companies -- as well as other top soft drink companies -- are on a hunt to find the right mix of ingredients in hopes the trifecta (no calories, no artificial sweeteners and noaftertaste) that will silence health concerns about sodas and reverse the decline in consumption of carbonated drinks.
However, some say that formula could be years away, because the ingredient that makes soda taste good is also what packs on the pounds: high-fructose corn syrup.
Artificial sweeteners used in diet drinks don't have any calories, but are seen as processed and fake. Natural sweeteners that come from plants present the most promising alternative, but companies haven't yet figured out how to mask their metallic aftertaste.
So, each company continues with their search before their competitors get there.
"I can't say when it will be here, but it's in the reasonable future," Al Carey, who heads the beverage unit for the Americas at PepsiCo Inc., the world's #2 soda maker, told the AP.
