Greener and Marginally Healthier Coca-Cola Life Coming to the UK

By Gary Cutlack on at

A new form of Coke will launch in the UK later this year, with the supposedly better-for-you Coca-Cola Life combining the fun of enjoying your favourite branded cola drink with a slightly lower amount of sugar and reduced calorie content.

Coke Life contains a third less sugar and calories than regular Coke, with its sugary hit coming from "natural" stevia leaf extract and regular sugar. But with the equivalent of four teaspoons of sugar per 330ml can, it's still not exactly the healthy choice the green label might have you believe. [Coke via Guardian]
