Drinking My Pop !

Half a can.... that is.   My snack today.
I hope what I'm recording is true....

Diet Coke and Coke Zero appear to be identical. Both contain no calories and no sugar. Both are artificially sweetened with (the same amount) of aspartame and acesulfame K and therefore have the same ‘sweetness’. 

. . they contain caffeine, the amount varies:
Regular Coke               9.7 mg/100ml
Diet Coke                     12.8 mg/100ml
Coke Zero                    9.6mg/100ml
Therefore, the amount of caffeine in Coke Zero is almost identical to that of Regular Coke and higher in Diet Coke. Most consumers would agree that Coke Zero tastes more like regular coke. This could be due to both having virtually the same amount of caffeine.
So which is the best to drink? Neither. We advocate water as the ideal drink. Add lemon or lime to make it taste nicer. We don’t recommend you drink ordinary soft drink. There’s  nothing nutritious or healthy about soft drink.
But if you’re need to lose weight or have type 2 diabetes, diet drinks can make your life more pleasant without adding kilojoules/Calories on a hot day. Drink them occasionally say if you’re out and want to be sociable.
Even without sugar, you’re still consuming something sweet and your taste buds get used to that level of sweetness. The odd one when you’re out is fine but don’t make a habit of them.  See here for reasons why. And their acidity and phosphoric acid is not healthy either. It can damage tooth enamel which contributes to dental erosion.
 If you have to lose weight or want to avoid spikes of sugar, either of these will be better than standard Coca Cola, which contains contains 675kJ and 40g of sugar in a 375mL can. But like all things, keep them an occasional drink. Make water your main drink and sip one of these as an extra.
