Was looking for some Coke alternatives after giving up Coke since listening to Radio 2. Basically they were saying that sweeteners are toxic to micro gut bacteria and they don’t know the long term effects. Seems literally everything fizzy drink wise is full of sweeteners even if there’s sugar. Nice to see this brand is keeping it natural. Only need it occasionally for a JD and Cola

Anyway, back to the deal... heat

Sugar is NOT "more dangerous" than the assortment of artificial sweeteners that poison a huge number of products.
The tax is there because the government know that they can look like they're encouraging "healthy eating" to the idiots, whilst simultaneously gaining some extra funds from the Exchequer from those who won't poison our bodies with artificial sweetener crap.

Indeed you are better off with sugar than you are with sweeteners and even better than that, if you can sweeten your food with dried fruits, you're better off again.

Dried fruits are technically not that great for you, because they're 60% sugar, however for that sugar intake, you get vitamins and fibre along with it. Two things we as a nation might be lacking?

I now flavour my porridge, instead of Honey (which is also ful of sugar itself - and surprisingly divoid of any vitamins unless you can afford the raw and organic un-processed un pasturised stuff) with goji berries or dried cranberries. - I've got used to the taste and no longer need sugar at all. (or pasturised processed honey.)

If you can afford maple syrup though.. now that's another story... that stuff is packed full of vitamins!

Have a great day

It's popular to believe that a chemical is going to do all sorts of bad things to you while something natural is going to be more healthy. Unfortunately, this is a load of rubbish. Many natural things are harmful and everything is chemicals.

Aspartame is incredibly well researched and there’s no danger to the average person eating it. Even in doses so large that they’re just silly there’s no danger. there are some people who cannot process it (phenylketonurics; people who cannot process phenylalanine). It can build up over their life and cause serious health risks, but that’s a specific disorder and condemning aspartame because of that group would be like claiming that peanuts give you cancer because some people are allergic.

Might be worth actually reading up on it rather than spouting rubbish.

I have a sensitivity to sweeteners and caffeine, since the sugar tax came in it's been a nightmare to find anything drinkable without sweetners in.
This stuff is lovely but I can't have it because of the caffeine

The obesity epidemic in the US is partly because of high fructose corn syrup - a product that exists because of subsidies given to corn farmers which make it a lot cheaper than sugar. Plus less of it is needed than sugar. There are also some studies showing it suppresses the stomach's ability to signal it is full making one eat more. No one uses it in home cooking yet it is allowed to be consumed.

Couldn't have said it better myself, although coke is still fine, only sugar included and no sweetener unless you go for the disgusting zero versions.

Sweeteners are cheaper to produce. Big companies don't care about your health, it's all about the money (obviously) the sweetener situation is a time bomb waiting to go off, and it's the young generations who will pay dearly.

All the good manufacturers , add Stevia or fruit alcohols. They are more expensive but naturally derived and better than Aspartame and Asulfame. I wish Coke , Pepsi etc did the same .

Better how? Stevia is basically just like any other sweetener, except people like to slap the "natural" tag on it to make it more popular, ignoring that stevia is highly processed before it's allowed as a food additive.

There's plenty of evidence out there that it's not much good.
I'll presume that you have eyes. Do you not see the hordes of hippos walking around holding cans of diet coke? Not doing much good for them.
Do you have functioning tastebuds? Can you not discern the horrible bitterness of aspartame? The stuff just tastes like crap.
I know you'll somehow try to argue that aspartame and similar is just great. I'm happy for you, really. What annoys me about people like you is that you've decided to ruin things that many people enjoyed in order to foist some nebulous health benefit on us. There's a word for people like that.

Spoke my own mind there you did. Well said.

Sugar comes from a plant.
Artificial (it's in the name) sweeteners are made in a lab.
Sugar cane takes time to produce, which makes it more expensive, so it's not attractive to big companies wanting to make as much money as possible.

There is just no reasoning with these people mate. Every one of them I speak to in real life try to claim there is no taste difference, but there is. Its like night and day.... Funnily enough, they are all much younger than myself.... Says it all.

Sugar ( and all high glycemic index carbohydrates ) gives you obesity, metabolic syndrome , diabetes, premature aging and early death. You want the sweet taste, not the diseases. Sugar is very cheap in this country due to European Union protection rules.
Not buying. Have type 1 diabetes therefore you are NOT a H0TDEALER this time. Think of me next time, not others and certainly not yourself. HEAT!
