It is the very first Coca-Cola product sweetened ONLY with stevia which is derived from a natural source – the leaf of the stevia plant.
In addition to being no sugar, it’s a low kilojoule beverage containing just 1.3 kilojoules per 100mls.
“The last 10 years of continuous innovation with stevia means we’re now able to deliver a delicious tasting beverage and we believe it’s the best tasting stevia sweetened cola we’ve ever made,” says Sandhya Pillay, Country Manager of Coca-Cola Oceania.
“Stevia is 200 times sweeter than table sugar and has no kilojoules, meaning we can use much less.
Our continuous innovation on stevia has allowed us to develop a delicious tasting beverage sweetened 100% from stevia.”
“There aren’t too many sugar alternatives around that are derived from a natural source and we think our recipe with 100% stevia and no sugar is a big deal.
We believe we’ve come up with a product that takes away the trade-offs and we’re excited for Kiwis to try it,” says Droumev.
“We’ve worked hard to meet the expectations of Kiwis and we are confident they will love the newest permanent addition to the Coca-Cola range.”
Coca-Cola Stevia No Sugar is available from Monday 7 May in all major and independent retailers across the country.
It will replace Coca-Cola Life and be available in an extensive range of pack sizes and formats including: 300ml PET bottle, 600ml PET bottle, 1.5L PET bottle, 6x250ml cans and 330ml glass.
