Bottler promises no changes for its sugar-cane Coca-Cola
NEW YORK | Fans of “Mexican Coke” in the U.S. need not worry about losing the cane sugar that sweetens their favorite drink.
Americans who buy the glass bottles of Coke exported from Mexico may have been dismayed by recent online reports that an independent bottler that supplies the drinks planned to switch from sugar to fructose to cut costs.
Arca Continental, the Mexican bottler in question, stressed in a statement that it has no plans to change the sweetener for the “Coca-Cola Nostalgia” bottles it exports to the U.S.
Those will continue to use 100 percent cane sugar, it said.
