Do You Like Coke Zero? Know This Before You Take Another Sip

Considering such a big deal is made out of the ingredients (or lack thereof) in Coke Zero, it's probably worth taking a deeper dive into just what this particular soft drink contains.


According to Coca-Cola, Coke Zero contains exactly nine ingredients: carbonated water, caramel color, phosphoric acid, aspartame, potassium benzoate, natural flavors, potassium citrate (or sodium citrate), acesulfame potassium, and caffeine.



Many of these speak for themselves — we don't need to tell you what carbonated water is, for example. The exact make-up of the natural flavors aren't known for certain, since the company likes to keep the recipe on the down-low, but past suggestions of ingredients include lime juice, vanilla, caramel, orange oil, lemon oil, nutmeg oil, coriander, neroli, and cinnamon. For what it's worth, Coke Zero contains 34 milligrams per 12 fluid ounces of caffeine — the exact same amount as a can of regular Coca-Cola.


In terms of nutritional information... well, there basically isn't any. Coke Zero contains no fat, no carbohydrates, no sugars, no protein, practically no minerals (aside from a very low amount of potassium), no calories and only 40 milligrams of sodium; around 2 percent of your daily guideline amount. Don't get too excited, though — a clean sheet like this doesn't necessarily mean Coke Zero is good for you.
