How Much Sugar Are We Exactly Saying A Can Of Coke Has

The majority of us are most likely enticed by a container of Coke occasionally, however we as a whole know it’s not precisely useful for our bodies. In any case, do you know what amount of sugar there really is inside that can?

The only clue: it’s sufficient to give you diabetes.

A current report by Public Health Liverpool noticed that there is around 54g of sugar in a 500ml container of coke, or to put it another way, that is an incredible 13.5 sugar cubes.

Someone else who took it upon himself to warn others of excessive coke consumption was George Prior, who in 2014 embarked on a mission to show the negative effects of the drink by knocking back 10 355ml cans of the stuff every day for a month. As you’d expect, the self-imposed challenge took its toll on Prior’s health; he put on two stone in weight and his blood pressure rose to an unhealthy 145/96. He also noted that, despite already drinking 350g of sugar each day, his body began to strongly crave even more.

However, though a spokesperson for Coca Cola Great Britain said in a statement to Mirror Online: “Every one of our drinks has a no sugar alternative and since 2005 we’ve reformulated 27 drinks to reduce their sugar content.”  This now begs the question, Is the decision not ultimately lies with the consumer?
