The blend replaces aspartame, an artificial sweetener approved by the US Food and Drug Administration but which has been plagued by criticism for years that it poses health risks.

"We recognize that consumer demand is evolving," said Seth Kaufman from PepsiCo.

Reports showed last year that diet cola sales were in sharp decline.
