A nat­u­rally sweet Coca-Cola

The Sun (Malaysia) - - WHAT2EAT -

COCA-COLA MALAYSIA re­cently in­tro­duced Coca-Cola Ste­via, a lower sugar cola sweet­ened from nat­u­ral re­sources.

It is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the Co­caCola fam­ily, which cur­rently in­cludes Coca-Cola Clas­sic, Coca-Cola Light, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, and Coke Vanilla.

Coca-Cola Ste­via de­liv­ers the same great taste you would ex­pect from Coca-Cola Clas­sic, but with 35% less sugar, achieved by us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of sugar and the sweet­ness of ste­via.

Ste­via, a no-calo­rie sweet­ener, is de­rived from the leaf of the ste­via plant, a unique source of in­tense, nat­u­ral sweet­ness.

The green-wrapped Co­caCola Ste­via first made its ap­pear­ance at 7-Eleven out­lets in Jan­uary this year. It is now avail­able na­tion­wide at all ma­jor re­tail­ers.

The Coca-Cola Com­pany coun­try man­ager for Malaysia, Sin­ga­pore & Brunei, Ah­mad Ye­hia, said: “We are con­tin­u­ally lis­ten­ing to the peo­ple who love our brands and bev­er­ages, and look for ways to an­tic­i­pate and sat­isfy their de­sires and needs. “In Malaysia, we know that con­sumers are in­creas­ingly con­cerned about sugar, and they want greater con­trol and choice. “Some con­sumers en­joy the taste of our bev­er­ages, but would like to re­duce their sugar and calo­rie in­take. “This is why we de­cided to in­tro­duce Coca-Cola Ste­via, which has the same great taste they would ex­pect from Coca-Cola Clas­sic, but with 35% less sugar, which is achieved by us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of sugar and the nat­u­ral sweet­ness of ste­via, to give con­sumers even more op­tions. “They can now bet­ter choose which­ever Coca-Cola suits their taste, life­style and diet – with or with­out sugar, with or with­out calo­ries.”
