Caffeine and Sugar - in COKE and PEPSI

I read this in REDIFF today and immediately thought that I should write something about Coke/Pepsi.

I feel that this might help someone out there who doesn't know what COKE/PEPSI have in them.

During my recent trip to India I saw several kids / teens drinking COKE / PEPSI !

A little bit of knowledge will help in avoiding drinks rich in Sugar and caffeine.

So, Here is some data:


Coke ( Regular - 1 can)
Sugar ( approx.38 grams - around 8 tsp)
Caffeine ( approx. 46 grams - around 9 tsp)

Pepsi ( Regular - 1 can )
Sugar ( approx. 40 grams - around 8 tsp)
Caffeine ( approx. 38 grams - around 8 tsp)

So, the next time you take a can of COKE / PEPSI near your mouth please remember the numbers.

If you see a kid drinking it...please take a minute and warn them / their parents.

Thank you for this info and I am glad you decided to write about this.

I think our Bollywood babus should give it a thought before promoting it aiming the youth of India.
