Please vote: Would you drink BioCoke or OrganiCoke?
What was the original Coke formula? According to the Wikipedia it was:
Published accounts say it contains (or once contained) sugar crystals, caramel, caffeine, phosphoric acid, coca leaf and kola nut extract, lime extract, flavoring mixture, vanilla and glycerin. Merchandise 7X (lemon, orange, lime, cassia (a type of cinnamon), nutmeg oils) is the "secret ingredient" in Coca-Cola. Alleged syrup recipes vary greatly, and Coca-Cola reluctantly admits the formula has changed over the decades. For example, the formula was changed
The basic “cola” taste from Coca-Cola and competing cola drinks comes mainly from vanilla and cinnamon; distinctive tastes among various brands are the result of trace flavorings such as orange, lime and lemon and spices such as nutmeg.
Amateur sleuths have tried to reverse-engineer the production process and ingredients. The secret formula is the subject of books, speculation and marketing lore. Aided by modern analytical methods, food scientists can easily identify the composition of food products, including Coca-Cola. The company consistently claims that all published recipes are incorrect.
The employees who know the full recipe must fly on separate planes when traveling, and cannot be left alone with strangers while they are together. To this day, Coca-Cola uses as an ingredient from coca leaf extract prepared by a Stepan Company plant in Maywood, New Jersey, using a process monitored by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
In an infamous corporate disaster, Coca-Cola introduced New Coke in 1985. After public outcry, the recipe was restored to the original "classic" formula, the only change being Coca-Cola bottlers in the United States replacing the traditional sucrose with cheaper corn syrup; Coca-Cola is still sweetened with cane sugar in most of the world.
But now we would like to drink BioCoke or OrganiCoke! A drink without phoshoric acid, aromas, colouring, etc.
Give us the chance!!!
Biocoke does not exist yet (but you can find some Bio Cola in the shops). At the moment, it is only an imaginary drink but we would like to make it a reality. Please cast your vote so that we could do something about it!
