Sprite from the Coca Cola company is a colourless, lemon and lime flavoured, caffeine-free soft drink.
People in India and abroad love to consume these carbonated beverages in large quantities, but they should keep in mind that the sugar content in them is very high as in 100 gm of the drink, there is 9 gm of sugar.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating : 2 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The beverage is consumed in large quantities which could contribute to causing obesity and diabetes , as just 100 gm of Sprite contains 9 gm of sugar. So weight watchers and those suffering from type 2 diabetes should stay away from it. Even healthy people are advised to consume very small quantities and that too not frequently.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating : 1 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
There is no nutritional value in this beverage, but it has excessive sugar and preservatives in it, which could be detrimental to health.
Ingredients in Coca Cola Sprite which are a concern:
Coca Cola Sprite contains 9 gm sugar in 100 gm serving. This food product does not specify which sugar has been used. This is important because different sugars have different metabolic effects. For example, Sucrose (Cane Sugar) is very different from Fructose (Fruit Sugar). Some foods use high fructose corn syrup which may be harmful in much lower quantities than sucrose. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to not clearly state what ingredients have been used.
This food product does not specify which flavours or flavouring substances have been used. The flavours should be specified as some of them have serious side effects and may not be suitable for infants, pregnant women or people who are allergic. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
By not specifying what these flavours and substances are, we are forced to consider what they are hiding and why would they be so reluctant to mention what they have used in the food product!
By this behaviour, these manufacturers expose people to possible allergens or toxins that could be avoided if consumers knew what they were
