 Single Large Serving of Coca Cola Contains Large Amount of Sugar

A large serving of Coke at the movies contains 44 tps of sugar, the president of the Coca-Cola Company's Europe Group, James Quincey, has confirmed.

During an interview on 'Newsnight', when the show's host asked the coke executive what good Coca-Cola did its consumers, Quincey admitted that the soft drink does have "some" sugar in it, News.com.au reported.


Quincey asserted that the beverage was not a necessity, but millions of people enjoy it as part of their diet.

He added that a regular can of Coke contained 35g or six teaspoons of sugar, similar in calories to "a cappuccino or a half a croissant".
