What ingredients are in diet coke

Created with Sketch. When it comes to Coca-Cola products, people tend to be die-hard fans.

Many of us know someone who can’t go a day without a Diet Coke or two or three. And while Diet Coke has been a leading sugar-free soft drink since it was first released init came to light that young adult males shied away from this beverage — identifying diet cola as a woman’s drink.

The company’s answer to that predicament came in — in the kind of a shiny black can — with the release of Coca-Cola Zero. While Diet Coke was created with its own flavor profile and not as a sugar-free version of the original, Coca-Cola Zero aims to taste like the “real Coke flavor just. With that information in hand we at HuffPost Taste needed to know: Which of these two artificially-sweetened Coca-Cola beverages actually tastes better?

And can you tell the difference between them even? Before we get to the results of our taste test, here are the facts: Diet Coke Motto: Always Great Taste Nutritional Information: Many say that a can of Diet Coke actually contains somewhere between calories, but if a serving size contains fewer than 5 calories a company is not obligated to note it in its nutritional information.

Ingredients: Carbonated water, caramel color, aspartame, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate, natural flavors, citric acid, caffeine. Artificial sweetener: Aspartame Coca-Cola Zero Motto: Real Coca-Cola Taste AND Zero Calories Nutritional Information: While the label obviously advertises this beverage as a zero calorie cola, we are not completely certain that its minimal calorie content is simply not required to be noted in the nutritional information.

Artificial sweetener: Aspartame and acesulfame potassium Ingredients: Carbonated water, caramel color, phosphoric acid, aspartame, potassium benzoate, natural flavors, potassium citrate, acesulfame potassium, caffeine.

The Verdict: Twenty-four editors blind-tasted the two cokes, side by side, and There is not one artificially-sweetened Coca-Cola beverage that outshines the other. So how do people choose between one or the other? It is a matter of personal taste either, or the marketing campaigns will influence their choice maybe.

  1. I think Donald Trump is a great president I mean he is a HUUUUGGGEEEE !! !!! Part of how America is so great. And he’s gonna win the 2020 election stomping all the Democrats while toasting them with a Diet Coke !! !!!

  2. This is true. I have stopped drinking diet coke as of 1-21-2020. Lets start counting the days.

  3. Simple,calories in vs calories out. You don’t gain weight on diet drinks. Just don’t have anything else n you will not gain.

  4. So if I’m able to resist the temptations of reaching for sweets or overeating, it’s fine?

  5. What a lot of tosh,no one could get any sense of the person speaking,best for him to learn how to deliver a speech,completely incromprehenseble

  6. All I drink is water. Occasionally natural juice or homemade lemonade.

  7. I love diet pepsi
    it is good for you NOOT i love diet pepsi NOOT!!
    like if you dont like diet pepsi
    reminder dont like if you do…
    im on a diet
    and…so forth.

  8. I just found out and Iam not going to drink any diet drinks no wonder I wasnt loosing weight

  9. I drink Diet Coke because regular coke makes me wanna vomit. And I’m fine 🙂

  10. Alright, not gonna say Diet Coke is a better choice than water, and yes it isn’t great for your teeth, but it is scientifically proven that Diet Coke does NOT spike your insulin. This video is mostly pseudoscience.

  11. The only thing I get from Starbucks is the free water. I still tip though.

  12. Im liking this simply so when I go to drink Coke Zero or Diet Coke I will remember this and BURN IT

  13. Insulin is triggered by sugar in the blood not on your tongue, diet soda has no sugar so no insulin is released

    For a month now I lost 16lbs and the biggest change has been eating one salad meal a day, going to the gym 3 times a week and replacing all sugary drinks with diet soda. Beginning of April I weighed in at 185lbs now at the beginning of May I weigh in at 169lbs. Diet soda=no sugar= better for your body, sweet taste will not release insulin only sugar causes insulin release.

  14. I dont like it

    It tastes like someone is shitting down my my mouth and getting shoved fakeness down my throat

    Leave a comment saying if u agree or not

  15. If Diet Coke was that bad for you Id be dead already. Delicious and nutritious

  16. so… worse than sugared soda? I never noticed the side affects he talks about.
    I gave up sugared sodas 30 years ago. It has been much easier to get down to manageable/maintainable weight with diet drinks (esp Crystal Light).

    I rarely drink plain water (less than a quart daily). But I also water down bottled fruit juices and most sodas… even the crystal light is too sweet to mix at directed proportions. I always add another quart.

  17. Im gonna die Ive been drinking it for 3 weeks straight omg !!!!! I just found out what it can do and drunk a gallon of water

  18. Trump is a great president build the wall keep on subject no one cares about your political views

  19. Now tell us about sugar? Sugar will kill you too, but no one ever mentions THAT. Im temporarily drinking one caffeine-free diet coke every night as a sweet reward for being good on my diet all day….so far its helped me lose 18 pounds….so this is BS

  20. People who watch this video please dont listen to this guy. This dude is very uneducated on the topic and completely lied as well. Diet soda does not raise nor spike your blood sugar and it doesnt make you store fat since you need a caloric surplus to gain fat at all. Honey also doesnt contain all those nutrients that he said.

  21. This video is making me want my own intervention to my soda addiction. Damn, this hit me like a ton of bricks.

  22. No one decided to go to his sources for this information (an opinion piece-who also used a bunk study that concluded NO CAUSATION). This is such utter bs. Channel blocked.

  23. Watching this while drinking a double gulp of Diet Coke and eating an ultimate bacon cheeseburger from Jacks.

    Ill be dead in a week 🤘😠🤘

  24. Check your sources man, the insulin thing has been completely debunked.

  25. OMFG a trump joke less than a minute in. Im not even in the states and im sick of american videos bringing him up 👎🏼

  26. Bro Diet coke does note make you fat, its 1 calorie and im dieting and as long as it tasts good without getting me fat all scientests can **** off

  27. Anyone who thinks this crap tastes good, has no taste buds. I was at a party and mistakenly picked this up and poured it into a glass, with a couple of shots of vodka, and even that couldnt kill the after taste of this garbage. Regular sugar is no good for your, but at least its natural. This is like choosing between Pot, and Oxycontin! The pot may not be really good for you, but we all know what the Oxycontin will do to you! Crap made with man made chemicals are never good for yoi!

  28. Does the increased phosphoric acid of diet coke promote further tooth decay than the phosphoric acid AND sugar of the regular kind?

  29. According to this dip shit all my teeth would have fallen out long ago and I would be obese.

  30. I just watched this video and threw a fresh bottle in trash lol

  31. Ive always known about these facts and still drink diet coke. Its a nice treat to have after drinking water for days.

  32. Or you can go old fashioned and get your but in the kitchen to make some sweet tea . Tea / water /1cup sugar to 2quarts = healthier than soda or diet soda 👍 and still taste good

  33. The political smear shows me the maturity level is too low to watch the rest. Can’t take it seriously.

  34. So its not the diet Coke itself that makes you fat but the craving that comes after drinking it. Ok got it

  35. I don’t like Diet Coke and I’m glad I don’t. That stuff made me throw up!

  36. The suns bad for you everything’s bad for you i don’t give a shit if it’s bad at this point watching tv is bad for you walking around in ways is bad for you 🤣

  37. This is true for some people. For other people who like a carbonated beverage that isnt sparkling flavored water that tastes absolutely disgusting and bitter, this is a fine option if moderated. I drink 1 a day. Thats it. And i stick to my meal plan. Im not fat by any means neither. I train calisthenics even. Im 22 damnit! I just havent experienced those sort of side effects. I dont feel more hungry after drinking one, usually because i drink it during a meal. Idk what the big deal is. Also artificial sweeteners are not bad for you in the slightest… that type of logic makes people go for sugar instead, and then they end up fat.

  38. Donald Trump is an awesome President. But yeah don’t drink sugar drinks.

  39. Trump left the chat* (btw trump likes diet coke toooo much lol)

  40. Well diet soda is an icon in the ED community so i dont think i will be stoppin anytime soon
