So for those who have always called themselves teetotalers, if you have been drinking Coca Cola or Pepsi, you have been consuming alcohol.
That is right, a new study by our friends in thick-rimmed glasses and white dust-coats says that the two beverages contain minute traces of alcohol. Tests go even further. They show that more than half of leading colas have alcohol in them. The trace is about 0.001% but it is there.
Of 19 colas tested, the nine which did not contain alcohol were made by brands including Auchan, Cora, Casino, Leader Price and Man U-Cola. Ten which had traces of alcohol in them included Coca-Cola, Pepsi Cola, Coca-Cola Classic Light and Coke Zero.
Of course, Coca Cola is denying this. They had one of their suits write this out
The ingredients used in our beverages are listed on the product labels and many third parties have tried over time to crack the secret formula of Coca-Cola.
In short there is no alcohol. Curiously enough they also said there was no meat. Why they had to say there was no meat we have no idea.
Now the drinkers feel a little less judged.
