Coca cola and cocaine[edit]

When had coca cola stopped using coca leaves in their mixture? Please state. 115.188.176.132 (talk) 01:07, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

They never stopped using coca leaf extract, but the version they use in the modern era (since the early 1900s, actually) is processed in a way that removes the narcotic compounds. It is done by the Stepan Company, as is already mentioned in the article; see Coca-Cola#Coca – cocaine. oknazevad (talk) 01:10, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

New formula for Canada[edit]

Due to semi-protection I am unable to add this information. Perhaps someone with an account could add it?

In January 2015, Coca-Cola Ltd. Canada announced that the Canadian formulation of Coca-Cola would change to reduce the sugar content, making it consistent with the international version of Coca-Cola.

Semi-protected edit request on 27 May 2015[edit]

please change this line:

A typical can of Coke (12 fl ounces/355 ml) contains 39 grams of sugar (usually in the form of high fructose corn syrup), the equivalent of 9 1/3 teaspoons of sugar.[2][3]

to the values of 33g of sugar and 8 teaspoons. with the source http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/show/4351?fgcd=&manu=&lfacet=&format=&count=&max=35&offset=&sort=&qlookup=14400 or http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/search/list?qlookup=14400

(same source, shorter url)

considering: source [2] "livestrong" is a very unreliable source. the replacement is from "United States Department of Agriculture", their "Agricultural Research Service ".

a much more reliable source and actually the source of the livestrong article, which manages to misquote the number.

secondly, source [3] isn't really a source, simply some pretty pictures along with no visible source for their information. It functions to provide a reference for the number of teaspoons 39g represents. this is unnecessary. a teaspoon is simply grams / 4.2

Yes check.svg Done Good source. And you're right, the later needs no reference, as it's a routine calculation. oknazevad (talk) 03:15, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

"In 2013, Coke products could be found in over 200 countries worldwide,". When you say countries, it would be assumed that you are speaking of sovereign nations, but there are only 196 independent countries in the world today (2015). You may want to change "countries" to "countries and teritories". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Welkiner (talkcontribs) 07:14, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
