Sugar! It’s an ingredient we read and hear a lot about. But did you know that Coca-Cola Zero Sugar contains absolutely no sugar at all? Here are five more facts about the way we're helping you enjoy less sugar...

1. We have many reduced or no-sugar, no-calories options 

Want your favorite drink, but don’t want the sugar? No problem.

We offer more than 40 drinks in Singapore, and 40 percent of them are lower or no sugar options. These include Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Coca-Cola Light, Aquarius, Schweppes Soda Water, glacéau vitaminwater, glacéau smartwater, ZICO coconut water, Heaven and Earth Jasmine Green Tea and Ayataka.

These are just some of our reduced and no-sugar, no-calorie options. Find out how we're evolving to give people around the world more of the drinks they want.

2. We’re removing sugar from some of our leading soft drinks

We’re busy working with our team of experts and nutritionists to refine our recipes and remove sugar from many of our regular soft drinks. That includes launching a new sugar-free cola in May – Coca Cola Zero Sugar which tastes and looks more like Coca-Cola Classic. It replaces Coca Cola Zero launched in 2008.

What’s next? Between now and 2020, we will continue to offer more new drinks with lower sugar content or no sugar added, and reduce the average sugar content in our portfolio of drinks by 10 per cent.

3. We’ve been exploring different types of sweeteners

Cutting back on sugar doesn’t mean compromising on taste.

We’ve perfected ways of creating great-tasting drinks with less or no sugar, and the ways we do that are evolving over time. Stevia plant extract is the latest ingredient we’re using to reduce or replace the sugar in some of our drinks.

It’s a zero-calorie sweetener and comes from the leaves of the stevia plant. It's also the reason why we will be able to launch Coca-Cola Stevia with 35% less sugar and calories (than Coca-Cola Classic), and give fans in Singapore a fourth cola to choose from.

4. We’re providing more portion sizes than ever before

When it comes to picking up a pack of your favorite soft drink, we know you want more choice. So that’s why we’ve made sure there’s a size to suit a range of occasions.

The latest addition to our pack is our 150ml mini can, which hit supermarket shelves in October. But you can also find refreshment in the form of a 250ml small can, a standard 320ml can or a 1.5l bottle, designed for sharing with friends and family.

5. We’re using clearer labels on our packaging

People are busy and want a quick and easy way to see what’s in their food and drink.

So when you pick up a can or bottle you’ll see that we put the calorie information right up front, and we list all the ingredients and nutritional information on the back – and on our website too – to help you make an informed choice. In February, we also started using the Health Promotion Board’s Healthier Choice Symbol labelling scheme. It’s there to help you choose drinks which has lower or no sugar and calories.
