Coca-Cola Life: New ‘healthier’ cola to hit shelves in Britain

Coca-Cola’s green label is a bit off-putting. The colour they chose reminds me of some laxative brand.

You’re looking at the first new Coca-Cola in eight years.

Coca-Cola Life contains a third less sugar and calories than the original.

It has been launched as part of industry and government-wide efforts to tackle the growing obesity problem.

The new installment of beverage – in green labelling – will go on sale in Britain in September after a pilot in Argentina and Chile.

Coca-Cola Life is sweetened with sugar and stevia leaf extract.

A 330ml can will contain 22.1 grams of sugar – 25 per cent of an adult’s guideline daily amount (GDA).

This is a dramatic slash on the 35 grams found in a regular Coke.

Life is the first new Coca-Cola since Coke Zero was launched in 2006.
